"My hope is that you fall in love with our Artisanal products just as much as I have enjoyed designing them for you, alongside our Partner Artisans" xT
The concept of M+D was born on a plane ride home from Guatemala in 2017. I wanted to make an impact that would generate a connection to those we met along the way. When you travel you learn so much about yourself and your eyes open up to the world in a way you can never imagine. You meet people along the way that you never want to forget.
Tracy graduated with a degree in Health Sciences and Human Development from San Francisco State University and CSUSM. Her background and training is in Women's Health and Cardiology. In college she worked part-time at Nordstrom in Downtown San Francisco and well known boutiques which is where she learned retail management, visual merchandising and marketing. Though she has worked in the medical field for the past 10 years she was always drawn back to fashion as a creative outlet.
Together with her best friend Sumeet (who is also The Godfather to her twin boys) they launched MERMAIDS+DRAGONS. Their passion for people, travel and design continues to influence every collection released at M+D.
Our mission is to promote wellness by supporting our global artisan partners and providing them with the opportunities to grow and sustain their art.
M+D is proud to offer 100% Ethically and Sustainably made products. You can shop with confidence knowing you're directly impacting an Artisan's livelihood.
From our family to yours- Thank you for your continued love + support.
