  • Behind the Symbol

    Behind the Symbol

    Our logo, an abstract phoenix, reflects the power and grace of today's modern women. In Asian culture, the phoenix is considered a female entity that represented important virtues such as loyalty, honesty, and justice. These values were core to our brand from the very beginning. In fact, our founder's name, Phuong, means "phoenix" and Mai translates to "tomorrow" in Vietnamese.

    Like the phoenix, P.MAI brings a fiery passion to life—unbridled and unafraid of what tomorrow brings. For even in darkness, against the odds and challenges we may face, we will rise again.

  • Our Raison d'Être
    1. 1
      Handbags are a pain—literally. Many women carry an excessive load, unknowing of the health risks. We believe two straps are better than one.
    2. 2
      We hated the backpack options out there. Too masculine. Too sporty. Too casual. Or not functional enough! We decided to make something better, more tailored for women.
    3. 3
      We're design-driven and believe products should be simple, beautiful, and useful. We won't settle for anything less.
    4. 4
      We celebrate women's empowerment and our right to pursue our dreams. Feeling polished should not come at the sacrifice of comfort or individuality.
