My name is Abby Chen, and I am the Sales Manager at La Meno.
Tell us about La Meno values.
LA MENO® is a carded jewelry brand with thoughtful meanings and little fun stories. All of the jewelry is detail and minimal which is an extra touch to women’s daily outfits. The word "MENO" in Italian means little and small. Just like the style and concept of LA MENO® jewelry, it is delicate and dainty, made to fit people's daily lives.
We are a women-owned and women-operated team. All of the jewelry in LA MENO is handmade in the U.S.A by our women artisans who are intelligently creative. The mission of our brand is always to create more jobs and opportunities with fair wages for women who are pursuing financial freedom in their life.
What is your favorite La Meno product and why?
My favorite product is the "London Eye" Bracelet. It is made with Fluorite, Blue Topaz, Rainbow MoonStone, and Kyanite. The reason I love this bracelet is that the bracelet helps the wearer to build a strong mind and control feelings. It encourages better communication and self-expression for the wearer. Meanwhile, wearing the bracelet could stimulate the ability to learn and think. The bracelet has beautiful shades of blues, which is also my favorite color!
Where are La Meno products made?
All La Meno products are handmade in the USA. We have an office in Irvine, CA, where we make all of the jewelry.
Tell us something you’ve learned in your sustainable fashion journey was a surprise to you.
I have learned that it is very important to have brand transparency for our customers. Not only do we share our stories and journey with them, but we also make every effort to use environmental-friendly materials for packaging.
Where is your favorite place to be and why?
My favorite place is Newport Beach. I am super in love with Cali weather, especially on the beach. It calms and relaxes my mind, and I feel recharged afterward.
