About us


Over the years we have created a strong bond with the people who supported our brand from the beginning. You were the ones who make MAEL feel like a family. We want to amplify that family vibe even more. That’s why we have created the MAEL FAMILY. You can be part of our story by entering our exclusive membership.

As part of the MAEL FAMILY you’re in for a treat. A few times a year we offer you exclusive access to our new items for two weeks. These items are only accessible for you and ensure first pick. after two weeks they will become available on our website for everybody. The MAEL FAMILY is, as the name suggests, a family of a select group of people. We do however offer a waiting list for new members and over time the family will grow.


MAEL: the French translation of prince. This royal approach is shown in our quality over quantity mentality, our high reach for the best and our constant need for expansion. The sky has no limit for the young and ambitious team, who have been working in the field for years soaking up knowledge and experiences that help make the right decisions and take some risks when it comes to the brand’s vision and believes.


The MAEL Team has been in the game for quite a while. The team consists of carefully selected members; Tijs Wiedijk, he started off in the fashion industry selling suits when he was only a teenager. 15 years and many lessons later he's the Head of Creative.
