12/1/2019 1:00:00 PM

A new shop has popped up in the Prien Lake Mall, just in time for the holidays.

Maylea opened its doors this past October. With stores in Baton Rouge at the Mall of Louisiana, and Lafayette at the Acadiana Mall Lake Charles is its third location. Maylea specializes in unique backpacks for children and adults, along with wallets, purses, totes and duffel bags. 

"All of our bags are made from PU leather,” says sales manager Sam Yu. This is a synthetic material that is made to look like leather, but costs much less. It’s artificial leather made with split leather (the fibrous part of the hide left over from making genuine leather), which has been coated with polyurethane. 

"What sets us apart from other retailers is that we offer complimentary personalized monogram/leather embossing with each purchase,” Wu says. "It’s all done on the spot within 15 to 20 minutes. This means the customer can simply wait in the store, or shop around and come back later to pick up their bag. Maylea is the only store that offers this service.”

Wu says that their bags are all designed in-house and manufactured specifically for their brand. "All of the bags are unique in design and better yet, very affordable. Our prices range from $19.99 to $69.99 for standard bags and purses. Our signature travel duffel bags start at $89.99 up to $109.99. And, we also offer a 90-day warranty with all purchases.” 

These aren’t your ordinary backpacks. They’re sleek and classy, and come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. Whatever your taste, there appears to be something for everyone.Along with their storefronts, Maylea has a website where you can browse their merchandise and order online. It also showcases new arrivals, along with sales items, and you’ll receive a 10 % discount coupon when you place your first order. And yes, you can get your online purchase monogrammed at no extra charge. 

Despite their strong online presence, Wu says most of their customers shop in their stores, due to the uniqueness of their business. "We will be running  Christmas specials, which we will announce on social media, so keep checking our Facebook page.”With affordable prices and so many styles, sizes and colors to choose from, there’s bound to be a few people on your Christmas list who will appreciate a gift from Maylea.
