Our Story


Mila + Mate's inspirations come from the world around us--architectural details, nature walks, the art world, whether seen online or every day or on the streets. The cities where we travel and live are alive with possibilities for our designs.       

Mila + Mate combines the vision of two people, one, the mother of Mila and Mate  and the other, their step-grandmother.

Both share experience in designing and working with graphics in the fashion world.  One is an artist and designer in The Netherlands and the other, has worked extensively in the luxury sector both on the retail and wholesale side, currently providing a platform for international emerging designers in NY. Both have developed a keen eye for color, textures, fabrics and wants.

We aim to create beautiful designs and graphics, using the most natural and soft materials. Our collaborations are with both established and emerging artists.
