Love Mert. is a sustainable lifestyle brand created from the innate desire to make. Melissa was born into a family of painters, sculpters, masons, knitters, sowers of seeds and observers of all things beautiful, and it was inescapable to do nothing other than follow in the hard beaten path.
The collections of handbags, hats, and jewelry are a culmination of life long loves. Collecting glass marbles at flea markets as a child, building elaborate forts in the forests of Vermont, dabbles in painting, pottery and weaving. Moving to towns I had never heard of with only a car full of belongings. A wanderlust, smile filled life full of imagination and fantasies.
Passion for textures, scents, structures, patterns and vintage oddities translate into a collection that reinvents primitive patterns, faceted crystals and natural elements. Made by hand in our studio in Park City, Ut with
upcycled leather scrap from U.S. factories, vintage leather, hand printed textiles and reclaimed wood baubles.
