Join Team Maya in honor of artist, inventor and chief creative officer, Maya Romanoff. As founder of namesake Maya Romanoff, Maya established the company in 1969 after discovering an inherent passion for dying textiles. His study and practice of Zen Buddhism was influential in his philosophy of making “uncommon art”.
Enter Woodstock and Maya’s discovery of the intriguing technique of tie-dye. His amazing fabrics swept tie-dye into the realm of couture and subsequently went beyond draping bodies to draping entire buildings creating large scale installation art. Maya began to experiment further with surfaces creating floorcoverings, entire fabric room environments and wallcoverings.
At the age of 49, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and devoted his free time to memorizing Shakespearean sonnets, singing, and spreadsheets. He never stopped pushing his company to create and grow.
Maya passed away in January of 2014 after a 20-year battle with Parkinson’s disease. Since that time, his wife and children continue to steer the company into the future so that his vision and legacy live on.
Join Team Maya for the local Parkinson’s Foundation Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson’s disease.
