She cut fun and creative characters from felt then hand-stitched them to shirts that often caused strangers to stop her on the street. Inspired by the way they were resonating, she launched an Etsy store shortly thereafter. That was 2009.
Since then she's built the brand into her full-time job, collaborating with artists and brands like Nickelodeon and Neiman Marcus to create limited edition pieces while still keeping that small-batch feel. Along with a dozen seamstresses (all mamas!) in Hawaii and Texas, Mi Cielo is truly a mom-powered empire.
