Marissa Heyl


Symbology is out to make fair trade sexy. Designer Marissa Heyl partners with women artisans in India to create handcrafted dresses that merge traditional techniques with modern design. From block prints to hand embroidery, tie dye to beadwork, each one-of-a-kind piece tells a story of empowerment-- not just for the maker but the customer, connecting women in a global community. Marissa finds her inspiration from motifs and symbols that hold deep cultural meanings and allow customers to embody the world in which they want to live.
