The original inspiration to create My Meskel came after a life changing visit to the Motherland, Ethiopia. Returning home and experiencing life the way people have for many years was an eye opening experience that shifted everything previously known. From traveling the breathtaking countrysides of Tigray to praying at the steps of the historic monolithic churches of Lalibela. My Meskel became a way to share an experience and love with others.

Through My Meskel, we are able to share a piece of our very own DNA as well as spread the history of other cultures. No matter where we all our now, we all have an identity. It is our job to not only be proud of our history, but to preserve it for the future generations to come.

It is our goal to provide quality products that represent of a variety of cultures, religions, and/or spiritual beliefs by bridging the gap between history and everyday modern day fashion trends.
