Patrick Mavros is an African family business, whose unique luxury products and experiences represent a safari of adventure, romance, and above all, unquestionable quality. Patrick Mavros was established over 35 years ago when Patrick carved a pair of earrings for his wife, Catja. From this loving gift, an international business was born and joined by his four sons, Patrick Mavros has grown into Africa’s leading luxury brand, known for its exquisite, unique, and evocative silverware and beautiful boutiques in London, Harare, Mauritius, and Nairobi. Marrying intricate craftsmanship with an intrepid family heritage every piece has been designed by a member of the Mavros family, and is made in Zimbabwe and Mauritius by some of the most skilled and highly trained craftsmen in Africa.


Patrick and Catja Mavros have injected their style and creativity into the magical environment of their home and studio in the sanctuary of the Umwimsi Valley in Zimbabwe where they brought up their four sons. From the very start, the boys grew up immersed in the creative surroundings of their father’s studio. Alexander, Forbes, Patrick Jnr, and Benjamin infused the House of Mavros with their enthusiasm, creativity, and passion with a serious pinch of fun… Love pervades everything connected with the business, from the design and production of the works of art to the care and attention are given to serving their customers and friends and, of course, their love of Africa.
