The towering cliffs of the Himalaya hold a sense of mysticism—a seeming border between the material and spiritual realms. High in these cliffs, a giant honeybee thrives by turning the pollen of gorgeous, but deadly, rhododendrons into a deep red honey that is both medicinal and hallucinogenic. This mad honey is coveted by Nepalese honey hunters who scale soaring heights and dangle from 300 foot bamboo ladders to gather the nectar. Our name—Mad Honey—is inspired by the story of this epic journey for the sweet elixir. We are here to celebrate joy, creativity, and bold, soulful living.
Our apparel designs are intended for bold women living vibrantly—Mad Honeys who honor their feminine powers, take risks, work hard, love deeply, stay mindful, open to possibility, see the world. Our eye-catching, soulful artworks and items for body and home serve as everyday reminders that it’s all about the journey.
Within the unknown lies possibility. Take me there.
