We’re still keeping what makes us Maria Callisto - but BETTER!!!
In our first two years of running Maria Ccallisto, we had trials, failures, and successes. we continue to develop our brand, we keep learning to serve you, our, customers, better.,

We plan to employ more staff with refugee / asylum backgrounds. It is very important for us to encourage refugees and asylum seekers, especially women, to explore their skills and love for fashion.
We have employed the services of two amazing women so far from Suffolk Refugee Support: our seamstress Sabraa, who is making all our Flutter slips, and our web developer Liza, who made this stunning new website.
We plan on continuing our Trinity project and use our platform to educate and have open discussions surrounding menstruation and period poverty.
Our first workshop was a huge success. We hosted two 4 hour session over 2 days The first day we discussed female anatomy with Heather Howena from the Terence Higgins Ttrust, and learnt what happens to your body when you are in the menstrual cycle. We also learned how to make reusable pads and other sustainable period products
The second session we had the lovely Emma @emmakyoga_ offer a yoga session on ways to improve cramps and take care of your body. After stretching and moving our bodiesy, we had a consultation with a health specialist Dr Nicky, , who answered all our questions about contraception, menopause , irregular cycles, and other queries we had.
Following the success of the Trinity Workshops, we reached out to a Essex-based charity called The Pachamama @pachamamaproject Project, to donate period products, briefs , and feminine hygiene products to 30 women in refugee camps in Lebanon

We believe lingerie should be made for the every day woman., She has every right to find her perfect size without discrimination. We operate on a made to order basis, and therefore we do not adhere to the standard UK size charts., We want our customers to be confident and comfortable in their lingerie, so we offer custom sizing for no extra cost.
We were also incredibly excited to launch our new Bridal service!
We recycle and transform your wedding dresses into one of a kind lingerie.
We are also planning on a special collaboration soon - so keep your eyes peeled- there’s more on that to come.
