Le mai­son de mas­son

Good (UAE) - - SHOP OF THE MONTH -

Whether it’s shop­ping for our own lit­tle ones or presents for friends, we’re al­ways on the hunt for gor­geous gifts for kids. it’s a search that led dubai-based mum Ayla Mas­son to open her own on­line bou­tique, la Mai­son de Mas­son.

“i am a huge lover of in­de­pen­dent, unique and well-crafted prod­ucts. There is noth­ing bet­ter than find­ing a beau­ti­ful item in a lit­tle shop on a tiny street in europe that you know no one else will have,” says Ayla. “When i be­came a mother, i wanted to give these types of things to my daugh­ter, but as most of them were sold over­seas, i was spend­ing a lot of time and money ship­ping them into the UAE.”

Ayla now seeks out pieces from around the world for her store, such as lit­tle dreams baby blan­kets from den­mark, toy sacks made of re­cy­cled pa­per from Swe­den, and Uae-themed shoes from South Africa. “When we source our prod­ucts, we look for the ‘three S’s’: stylish, sus­tain­able and a small busi­ness,” Ayla ex­plains.

it’s an ethos that ex­tends to la Mai­son de Mas­son’s own line of lex & fox teething toys. “They are made right here in the UAE with com­pletely sus­tain­able and or­ganic prod­ucts, from the wood used to the or­ganic beeswax they are hand-pol­ished with,” says Ayla.
