Our mission is to be a counter-cultural company that reimagines textiles.

When we change the equation of how products are made, we rediscover the nobility of craftsmanship, the beauty of natural materials, and the sustaining joy that connects the maker and the receiver.

These are the four commitments Merida lives by, woven into everything we do.

1.Make beautiful products

2.Use natural materials

3.Elevate the practice of craftsmanship

4.Cultivate a virtuous circle
