We get this question often, STINA & MAE isn't just a name that we pulled out of thin air. Its the names of two bad ass women who lived/live life to the fullest.
Here's their story: Mish's great grandmother Susie Mae was born in a small town in Alabama call Wetumpka to a farming family. The weight of freedom rested upon her innocent shoulders. Both her parents were born during a time when African Americans were enslaved. The lively little girl went on to educate her self and leave that small town for the big city.The city was were she had met a tall gentlemen that she would soon fall in love with and later build a family. It was out of that loving relationship that Ernestine was born nickname Stina. Susie Mae tackled to world with vigor and strength. Her soothing words equally match her strength.
Ernestine our founders amazing grandmother would grow up to be a life long student of life and the arts. A women of grace and poise set upon the path to elevate the standards of the status quo. Defiant of any one who would constrain her or put her in a box she is unique and steadfast.
These two women not only influenced a generation to come but influenced a brand. Their quality of style and grace, strength and pose is the epitome of what STINA & MAE stand for. We as a brand aim to defy the status quo and elevate the standards of quality.
