The unique story of Patrick Mavros is deeply rooted in Mauritius, where designers Kate and Forbes Mavros continue to be inspired by the islands’ rich nature. Combining ancient jewellery making techniques and modern technology, Kate and Forbes create a vast array of jewelery and sculpture inspired by the natural world, including a recent masterpiece of Coral and Hawksbill Sea Turtle Candelabra with custom cut Emerald eyes in Sterling silver on Bronze. In addition to their signature African animal silver jewellery and sculpture ranges, the brand is constantly expanding, and has just launched a new jewellery collection based on flora of Mauritius.
Love pervades everything connected with their business, from the design and production of works of art to the care and attention given to serving customers and friends and, of course, their love of Mauritius.
It all began when Patrick created a pair of earrings for his wife Catja, who wore them to the hair salon, where her hairdresser saw them and requested that a pair be made for her. Soon afterwards, all the other ladies who went to the salon were asking for similar earrings and from this gift of love, our journey as Africa’s luxury house began.
Patrick and Catja have injected their style and creativity into the magical environment of their home and studio in the sanctuary of the Umwimsi Valley where they brought up their four sons.
From day one, the boys grew up immersed in the creative surroundings of their father’s studio. Alexander, Forbes, Patrick Jnr and Benjamin infused the house of Mavros with their enthusiasm, creativity and passion with a serious pinch of fun…
