She focuses on making eco friendly clothing. Her shop focuses in ready to wear, ready to ship clothing. When she has a design in mind, she goes all in and produce several quantities of it. In a small studio space, it is much more efficient to do everything in bulk.

“I spent the 90s and early 2000’s growing up in the Philippines. That’s where I first got interested in clothing. I’d spend hours at my Grandpa’s office learning all about fashion + fabric. I saw all the work that went into a single garment and learned to appreciate it. From designing to sampling to sewing to production, I was exposed to everything and knew that every garment had a story.

As I graduated to High School, I took a more active role in learning about the production process. I started drawing and designing and eventually found my way into the more technical aspects of production. In college I started drafting my own patterns and sewing some of my own clothes.

Fast forward to New York, 2009 when I first stumbled upon Etsy. I immediately opened my first shop and started selling! When I made my first sale, I was ecstatic! Someone thought my work was good enough to pay for it! After 5 years in New York, I decided to move back to the Bay Area, where I am now currently based.”
