Connecting with people of the world is incredibly powerful. I’m endlessly inspired by cultural awareness and making the foreign familiar, educating “little citizens” of the world through photos, cultural objects and art from travels. I infuse the beauty of global cultures into our clothes. About :
From birth, my mother and grandmother taught me that travel is the best education. My husband’s rich ethnic heritage beautifully reveals the global conversation at play, and my children inspire me every day.
Emily Meyer is Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Tea Collection, a globally-inspired children's apparel company that has been on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies in the U.S. for 7 years. Emily started Tea in 2002, envisioning a lifestyle brand that celebrates global cultures. By following her passion for travel and multi-cultural awareness, she created a brand for kids with context (utilizing her background as a childrenswear designer). Twice a year, Tea designers travel to a new part of the world and create a new clothing collection inspired by other cultures. They have visited 16 countries to date!
Tea Collection is available online at TeaCollection.com, and is brought to life through a catalog published 8x per year, and in specialty and department stores, including Nordstrom and more than 300 high-end children’s boutiques in the U.S., Canada, Asia and Australia.
