We first started selling petticoats in 2012, back then it was just a seasonal business and everything was made by our founder while she was still in her college years. Time went by and we became known, specially in the EGL community, for our custom made petticoats, something we are really proud of!
By the end of 2016 we really became a brand and a full time online store, working 24/7! A lot happened since then and 2019 we expanded our business and launched our first original print.
Our goal is to offer unique and high-quality clothes made with love and care in every stitch, something you will love and be proud to wear.
Curiosity: “MeLikesTea” did not start as a clothing brand from the beginning, in fact it was first used as the name of our founder’s own YouTube channel back in 2010!
IN THE FOUNDER’s WORDS
As a famous Brazilian song says:
“Everything was only silliness but it started growing and growing and absorbing me and suddenly I saw myself like this, completely yours. I saw my strength tied to your steps, I saw that without you there is no way and I cannot find myself, I saw a big love scream inside of me, as I once dreamed of. When my world was more world and everybody could see a strange change, more innocence, more affection, more patience, more joy in my way to give myself.”
Sonhos – Peninha
This is how I feel about MeLikesTea, at first I didn’t expect much from it, I was just a silly girl accepting commissions from friends even though I had only started to learn how to sew, but MLT started to grow and grow till I left every other career possibility to dedicate myself fully and completely to it. Working for MLT all this years has taught me to be more patient, to cherish the little victories of each day, to give more of myself to others, to be more affectionate, and it brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined back in 2012 when everything began. Nowadays, although MLT keeps growing, we still maintain the loving spirit of when it all started, we still work like we’re making clothes for our beloved friends.
