About MadeByMorteica

On Etsy since 2017

I want everyone to love themselves and feel beautiful and be able to afford cool stuff!

There are three things that have driven me most in my business:

1.) The want to make everyone feel represented, strong, beautiful, capable, and able to show their proud to be a pole dancer or other aerial artist.
2.) I want to make clothing that flatters as many body types as possible.
3.) I want to make quality clothing that is affordable so everyone can own a pole dance shirt no matter their financial situation.

I started laying the foundations for my business while I was in college. It took enough financial juggling to be able to afford pole dance classes, let alone afford to but pole luxuries like shirts. So I started to make my own shirts along with some other pole dance inspired items like leg warmers. I would sell the leg warmers, but I really wanted to be able to sell clothing with graphics. I am a classically trained artist and have always wanted to get back to my roots somehow. Making art in any form is one of the most rewarding aspects of my life.

My fiancé pushed me to follow my heart and I started making shirts. Then a very good friend of mine, Candra Cain the owner of Candra Cain Photography, invested in me and helped me buy an industrial shirt press. AND THEN IT WAS ON! I will forever be grateful to Candra and my fiancé, and the rest of my friends who saw potential in me and pushed me to keep moving forward.

When I started to actually make and sell my clothing I kept to my plan to make sure I offered quality affordable shirts so everyone can have one. That is why I will always have $10.00 shirts and I will continue to make more designs to offer at that price. Everything I make scales to how much I pay for the base material and I will use any excuse to run a sale. I never want to take advantage of my pole and aerial people. I just want to clothe you and make you smile!

If any of you ever see me out in public I hope you stop me and say “Hi”. I would love to meet everyone. You’ll usually know me by my dark lipstick and goth-rocker look.

I am also a pole dance instructor at Studio Neesheta ( @studioneesheta) and performer so if you would like to see me running around being weird you can follow me on Instagram at @morteica and on Facebook at .

And in case you don’t already follow Made By Morteica on Instagram and facebook:

Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone love something I have created. I hope you love my creations as much as I love making them (which is a lot!)

I will constantly be updating this shop with new styles of clothing and other handmade items so keep checking back! <3

Clothing brands may vary for an item (for example, a T-shirt may be one of several brands) but the sizing will remain the same as the size chart in the pictures of each listing.

Prices are subject to change throughout the year depending upon seasonal availability.

Almost every graphic can be altered to feature a male dancer or "child appropriate" dancer (without heels). All graphics can be put on men's or children's clothing. Please message me to do this.
