Mila & Me is a small, Latina-owned, hand-dyed, loungewear brand with matching mommy & baby options. The idea for our brand was conceived during COVID-19 to brighten your day and bring you comfort and peace.
My 5-month-old daughter (at the time), Mila, was the inspiration behind starting Mila & Me. When she was 6-weeks old, she had to undergo surgery for an abnormal mass that had been growing in her abdomen since she was in utero. She was incredibly strong and resilient. As a new mother, struggling with a healing newborn, the global pandemic was an instant reminder that we, as a nation and a community, would need that same determination and strength. I channeled my energy into creating custom tie dye pieces for family and friends, which turned into my creative outlet. My focus amplified when I knew it was a way for us to help and to bring happiness and comfort to people with my pieces.
Our mission is to create unique loungewear that brings you comfort, color and joy. Each piece is hand dyed with love, bringing you effortless style. As we learn how to navigate our new normal, we will continue to partner with brands and businesses that share our values and desire to strengthen our communities.
For our first round, we donated 10% of our profits to Citymeals of New York to provide emergency meals to New Yorkers in need. Citymeals has delivered 200,000 meals and 450,000 emergency meals are needed as soon as possible. To learn more, please visit, Citymeals COVID-19
We will continue to spread the love and donate to causes in need. If you have a charity near to your heart, please send it to us for consideration for future donations.
