Born in Los Angeles, California - where the sun kisses the ocean and daydreams are creative outlets -
I grew up always knowing that there was a strong bond between people and the earth. (maybe it was the Aloha state of mind or my Japanese culture...maybe it was the happy hour wine..who knows?)
Being in the fashion industry for over a decade, it made me realize there were far too many companies that made thoughtless waste with no intention of fixing that negative environmental and social impact. It hurt my soul knowing that being creative in a big company compromised the say I had on how it would affect our surrounding people and earth. Not only that but I saw first hand the unfortunate indifference of human connections at these high scale companies. We were all just a number on paper. But then I thought...why? No matter the reason - I knew having respect and understanding, of not only ourselves, but everything that surrounds us is vital to our existence. Within ourselves, we have the power to protect those things and so much more. So why would this be any different? Instead of waiting for the change, I can start the change itself.
Thus, love.kat.designs was born.
We are a conscious company promoting the idea of products/practices that last a lifetime and radiate positive vibes into one's life. From teaching yoga & meditation to creating hand-crafted items, we make an effort to give back to communities near and far, in hopes that the energy we send out into the universe will help someone find what they need.
with love and good vibes

We currently use plant-based, home compostable mailers and starting to incorporate 100% recycled cardboard boxes that are from 95% post-consumer content! (whew - that was a mouthful!)
We are always sourcing better options for shipments, packaging, and labeling everyday in hopes that anything we ship stays out of landfills!
Natural Dyes are prone to fading over time and long exposures in the sun. But that doesn't mean the life of an item is over! The re-dye program allows us to give color back into your purchased product!
All you have to do is purchase the correct re-dye program & indicate the items you would like re-dyed in the special instructions at check out. We will e-mail you your shipping label once we receive your order confirmation. Process will take up to a week to set the dye.
*the program only works if the item you purchased has a natural dye color option. If the item was originally purchased with a specific dye color, the item can only be re-dyed the same color.
Every month, 20% of all profit will go to a rotation of different charities! (This not only means everything in our shop, but also any money made through our yoga classes!) We believe that it is important to give back to the communities that build us.
Charity will change monthly and is deeply connected to Kat's life and values.
