There's nothing like something handmade - indulge!

A couple of things have brought me to this endeavor. First, I think visually, so presentation from design to branding to packaging is an integral part of the mlmxoxo line. Secondly, I operate on the basis of three principles:

Form follows function.
Less is more.
God is in the details.

The first two come from architecture and the third from my grandmother who was a perfectionist in everything she did, and consequently enriched our lives on a daily basis. I strive to design something that serves a purpose, incorporates high-quality natural materials (like pure wool felt) as well as vibrant color, maintains the integrity of those materials by eliminating unessential embellishment, and is rendered with a degree of craftmanship (a nod to my mother's particular talents).

My hope is that you'll find something at mlmxoxo that meets both your practical needs and your personal desires.

Hello & Welcome - I'm thrilled you found my shop! Slowly but surely, I design and fabricate all items at mlmxoxo in my Boston atelier.

Follow me on pinterest & I'll send you a discount code:

In terms of philosophy, form follows function (Louis Sullivan), less is more (Mies van der Rohe) and God is in the details seem to be my guiding pricinples in this venture and in life.

Nature exemplifies all three concepts and that may explain why so often nature serves as inspiration. Quality materials like paper and pure wool felt, and simple cutting and stitching techniques ensure a minimalist, practical and, depending on your taste, potentially esthetically pleasing product.

I hope you find something you very much like and which serves you well!

Refunds and Exchanges
I'm hoping that these pictures (in spite of color variations from screen to screen) capture items well enough to make you confident in your purchase when you place your order. For neckwarmers, don't hesitate to request a yarn sample if it will help you make your selection.

If an item is not to your liking, please convo me within two days of receipt. Refunds (minus shipping costs) are available for items damaged in transit (which should not occur given the care I take with packaging) and other items are exchangeable for a similar item or store credit. Flower Power necklaces are not returnable unless damaged during delivery (I think it's tempting fate to entrust them to the USPS more than once).
