Mother love.

 The Maverick - High Rise Wide Leg
 The classic black
 The Insider - boot cut

Mother was founded in 2010 by designer Tim Kaeding and Lela Becker. Famous for its super-soft fabrics and irreverent attitude, their boutique, made-in-L.A. brand is unique for keeping an indie spirit while still offering fits and washes that appeal to a wide range of women. Tim likes to say that Mother, a word as loaded with innuendo as it is unconditional love, goes against the grain; the brand pushes technological boundaries when it comes to that signature soft denim, and pushes brand boundaries when it comes to, for instance, naming silhouettes (think cheeky: The Dropout Boyfriend, The Groupie). "We stand for having fun, and not taking yourself too seriously," Lela says. What they do take seriously: staying modern and relevant amongst the best in fashion while giving women jeans they can live in and look great in.

The True Cost

We are continually learning and striving to buy better and do better.  
Thank you to our remarkable roster of designers.  We are honoured to carry you in our little shoppe. 

The True Cost
An excerpt via. The True Cost - This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?
Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes. - The True Cost
