mahabis, (stylised version vs Mahabis) is an e-commerce led, premium lifestyle brand founded in 2014, headquartered in London, with manufacturing in Europe and China. After entering administration on the 27th December 2018,[1][2] in January 2019 mahabis was acquired by YYX Capital, a special situations focused consumer investment company founded in April 2018. The company was given the Best Innovation in Footwear award at the Drapers Footwear Awards in 2015,[3] and was also a finalist in two categories at those same awards.[4]

Products[edit]

mahabis sells a range of slippers and accessories. Their slippers feature a detachable sole so that they can be used both indoors and outdoors.[5]

The designs of the slipper and the detachable sole were developed using techniques such as 3D printing.[6] This enabled the brand to take the product from conception to market more quickly than traditional methods.[citation needed] The final product features materials conventionally used outside of textiles, such as neoprene and TPU.[citation needed]
