WHO

Eshie Kim, Owner

Hello my name is Eshie. I am the Creator behind Mantle Jewellery. I was born and raised in Los Angeles and I went to Otis College of Art and Design, for Fashion Design.  I love Japanese aesthetic and design, wabi-sabi and balance of things. I am constantly inspired by music, the created earth, and furry animals. I currently reside in the San Pedro, near the port of Los Angeles.

WHAT

Mantle Jewellery is a collection of jewellery that is meant to be worn everyday. I use high-quality metals and stones so that the pieces people invest in will not break easily or tarnish, and can be worn for a long time. I shy away from trendy or statement pieces and focus more on comfortability, weight, and timeless design. Mantle Collection is affordable and is made for everybody, regardless of where you live, how old you are, and what you look like.

WHEN 

I came up for the idea for this brand three years ago. I named it Mantle because it means a cloak or covering, or an important role or responsibility that passes from one person to another.

 

WHY

As much as I want to make beautiful product, my heart is really for the Humans that wear them. I want this brand to be the means to the end, the end which is transformation in individual lives and communities worldwide. This world operates on finances and mostly on greed. I want this brand and company to operate on Giving. Since I began this company, I have been sowing into non-profits that do just that. Currently, I give monthly 10% of every sale to a non-profit organization called Konbit Haiti. Konbit Haiti is a community transformation Non-Profit that is helping Haiti thrive again.

This world operates on finances and mostly on greed. I want this brand and company to operate on Giving.
