MATE the Label

I first felt MATE’s dreamy tees while shopping the Girlboss Rally Bazaar in Los Angeles. Tucked in a booth among other female-founders was Kayti O’Connell Carr. The brand is as California cool as she is. Kayti’s mission is to create effortless and easy basics that feel good on the skin. Not only are the garments beyond cozy, they also non-toxic (no harsh chemicals in the fabric) — just good, clean tees.


MATE the label is a Los Angeles based clothing brand, founded by Kayti O’Connell Carr in 2013.

The team consists of creative and passionate individuals that strive to continually innovate and improve product.

Sustainable and ethical practices are paramount to the brand’s ethos. MATE has chosen to partner with factories within a five mile radius from their Arts District Headquarters in DTLA. Each piece is thoughtfully designed, carefully sourced and proudly produced in small batches season after season.

A favorite among celebrities and influencers, MATE offers clothes to live and love in on the daily.
