About Us

We believe accessories are a symbol of femininity, a way to embrace your unique sense of style and instill confidence. Maia James was created out of a realisation that belts are underrepresented within accessories. Our goal is to provide fashion-forward women with high-quality, modern belts that can be worn time and time again.

Inspired by our Nordic heritage we mix natural beauty with a masculine edge for a look that is effortlessly cool. We use only the finest quality materials and exquisite craftsmanship to create belts that will become your treasured wardrobe essential, a timeless luxury.


We are committed to ethical sourcing and caring for the world we live in, we care about how our belts are made and the welfare of the people making them, that's why all our products are produced in high-quality, long-standing factories in the UK and Portugal, using only the finest materials. European production also limits the miles our belts travel.

We embrace the need for versatility, whether dressing up for a night out or wearing your everyday jeans and t-shirt, your Maia James belt will allow you to add a unique touch to your outfit and express your individual style...and in turn we hope to reduce fast-fashion by enabling your wardrobe to work harder! 

How it all started

In 2018 a certain designer logo belt was a big trend, I saw it as an investment piece and I was desperate to get my hands on it! When I finally purchased it, I was totally in love. I wore it with everything….jeans and dresses, smart or casual, day to night.

However over time, the belt became hugely unoriginal and unimaginative. I felt like I was seeing it everywhere, people were buying copies and lookalike styles were on the high-street….I thought there must be other high-quality, unique belts to wear!

I began to realise women love to accessorise with jewellery and hairpieces, with a huge range on market, but miss the opportunity to accessorise with a belt with a much more limited range available.  I felt there was a gap in the market for fashionable, high-quality, statement belts. And this was how the idea behind Maia James was born, I wanted to create belts that were cool, fun and wearable. Modern belts that women loved.
