Mia Eliza

Mia Eliza is the founder of JoyBound, an ethical lifestyle brand that empowers women to choose joy even through the difficult moments. The heart of the business has always been her artisan-made pieces that are done by the hands of women in Bolivia whom she met while volunteering there alongside her husband in 2011. As a mother of two little boys, she strives to find a balance between running the business she loves while also giving her children a full childhood marked by memories of joy and laughter. In addition to designing ethical clothing and accessories, Mia writes an intentional living blog to share her thoughts and words of encouragement with women everywhere.
