From the beginning, MudLOVE was created to do good. Our collective purpose is to disrupt patterns of brokenness with the thoughtful and creative pursuit of love. That means we work as a team, using the tools we have, to break continued cycles of hardship, poverty, and hurt. We believe in the ability of each person to use what they have to change the world. In our case, we have mud and creative hands.
We knead love into our work. Our team puts thoughtful, skillful hands to the clay everyday to shape mud into love. Love becomes life channeled into creative fundraising solutions, unique and meaningful gifts, and helping underserved communities around the world.
This purpose is possible thanks to people just like you. You understand the world is full of seemingly insurmountable injustices. But you also understand that even the attempt to disrupt those patterns is worth it. We create tools that give you the opportunity to shape your life and the life of your community. Together, we’ll find ways, big and small, to show love and fill the world with hope.
Every bracelet or mug is crafted by teams of artisans in the US and Dominican Republic. Learn more about the production process HERE.
We want to inspire the very best in you. Whether it’s a simple word or a cute image, our products inspire the parts of you that are generous, compassionate, and hopeful. Read your stories HERE.
Water transforms mud into clay. In much the same way, access to clean water transforms a community. Read about our partnership with Water for Good HERE.
Our contribution is just a small piece in a global movement to fight against injustice. But a bracelet on the right wrist or a mug in the right hand can change someone’s world. So whether you’re fundraising for your second adoption, sending a “thinking of you” gift, or brightening a dark day, we’ve got your back.
