• About •

Shaina Mote is a young designer living and working in Los Angeles.

Design Philosophy

In an effort to curb the mentality of fast fashion, we aim to provide sleek, transformable staples. By giving new options to the wearer, such as: a new way to tie, a reversible quality, etc., the hope is to increase the ways to wear the pieces over time and encourage less waste on the whole.

Production

We strive to bring consciousness to our production process. When possible, we work with locally sourced or dead-stock goods and materials. Our production is done over the span of a few months with local and family run businesses.

Fibers

Though the design aesthetic is modern, the materials themselves are classic and natural. Cotton, tencel, rayon, bemberg and wool are commonly used throughout the collections. We place an emphasis on utilizing easily renewable plant-based fibers.
