small batch, comfort-forward clothing

Made in Los Angeles

Our garments are handmade in small-batch, limited runs in Los Angeles. Over 8 small, local businesses contribute to the production of each piece of clothing.

Designed to make you feel good

Amazing textiles, forgiving fits, and thoughtful production practices. And when you shop with Merna Maita, you are supporting a sustainable, ethical, female-run business.

Named after a grandma

Merna Maita is our designer's grandmother. She entertains with brisket, always in a caftan. Regarding the pandemic, she says "we have to celebrate the little things right now...like pizza!"

Thoughtful materials

Our clothing often makes use of remnant materials, such as deadstock fabric and leather scraps, that would otherwise be destined for landfill.

Limited availability

Runs are small, and sizes sell out quickly. Please get in touch if you need help finding a particular style or size.

For all stages of womanhood

Wear on Zoom, to sleep, or dressed up for a patio hang. Pregnant, nursing or not. Merna Maita will keep you comfortable on any occasion.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

Scary times, but the jumpsuit brings me joy. It's the little things.

Jamie Z.

Feels like I'm wearing PJs, but like I can also be productive.

Caitlin O.

I wore my jumpsuit for 48 hour straight and finally just changed. Exclusively Merna Maita attire for lockdown.

Lauren F.

The MM jumpsuit is the best thing I've bought in years. It's the only thing I wear that's not leggings or Nike shorts.

Jenny C.

I've been living in MM since quarantine started.
