A Word from Mieka:

With a mixture of joy and sadness I announce that Made by Mieka Olive Oil Soaps is now closed.

As you may know, my professional commitments have been divided between my small business and my academic career. Each endeavor has enriched me tremendously, but has also pulled me in different directions, and for some time I have felt unable to do either job as well as I would like because my attention is split between the two.

After taking time to weigh my choices and sharing these with loved ones, I chose to close Made By Mieka. I am excited to focus my energies on my academic life, though there is more than a tinge of sadness in ending this important chapter in my life.

I am fiercely proud of the company I created. I found joy in learning how to build a business, and for growing my company into what it became. Mostly, I am grateful for the breathtaking number of creative, talented, smart, hardworking, thoughtful people I met along the way, and for the wonderful relationships we've developed.

If you'd like to get in touch, you can reach me at madebymieka@gmail.com

Thank you for your support over the years. I look forward to seeing what the future brings!
