A team of skilled Guatemalan artisans & a passionate business owner working together


Maile & Nic was founded in February 2018 by Maile Cabral while on vacation in the highlands of Guatemala. Inspired by the people, culture, landscape and artistry, she decided to launch her ethically-sourced lifestyle boutique and brand.

Cabral is an accomplished public relations professional with extensive experience in the fashion industry. A successful entrepreneur, in 2011 Maile launched her own PR firm and for seven years oversaw campaigns for many of the nation’s top fashion brands. A recognized and respected expert in the fashion PR arena, Maile has been instrumental in launching and publicizing some of the nation’s most prestigious brands including a premium designer denim brand, a high end liquor company, and a large firm with skincare, jewelry and fashion verticals. Her top celebrity partners and clients include Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, Kate Bosworth, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and Mary Kate and Ashley Olson.

In 2015 Cabral branched out from public relations and became an independent sales retailer for a large direct sales clothing brand. During this time, she perfected her customer service and consumer sales skills. She provides top-notch service and her strengths lie in building solid client relationships, creative campaign partnerships, trendsetting within the industry, and strategy that scores top media placements. She is beyond excited to now bring these skills to Maile & Nic.
