About Mammaste, LLC

Mammaste (rhymes with namaste) was born when my daughter customized a pair of Converse® shoes for me for mother’s day 2007 and misspelled ‘namaste’ as ‘mamaste’ on the heel strip. When the shoes arrived, I was delighted with the misspelling, and wore them everywhere. People loved them and seemed to intuit immediately what Mamaste meant, wondering where they could buy a pair for themselves.  After tweaking the name slightly to make it uniquely our own, we created Mammaste, LLC.

Since that serendipitous spelling error, Mammaste has evolved into a company that through its message, products and philanthropy promotes loving the whole world with a mother’s heart and reminds us to see divinity in ourselves and others, every day. Mammaste offers inspirational products that remind us to see divinity all around us–every day. A meaningful percent of all Mammaste profits go to Women for Women International, and organization that lifts up women survivors of conflict and offers them hope for a better future.

Mammaste is not affiliated with any particular religion. We believe, as Rumi said; “In every religion there is love, yet love has no religion.” The messages written on Mammaste products resonate unconditional love, rippling it out into the world. It is a love that we believe can change the world. After all, Mammaste is all about the love, baby.

A meaningful percentage of our profits support organizations that serve those in need. Our current non-profit recipient is Women for Women International.  Women for Women International supports women in war-torn regions with financial and emotional aid, job-skills training, rights education and small business assistance so they can rebuild their lives.

Because the intention with which Mammaste products are created is as important to us as the products themselves, every Mammaste garment will be lightly stamped on the inside with a loving intention. Not visible from the outside, the sentiment of love, joy, peace or grace is meant as a gift from Mammaste to you!

Mammaste, there really is so much divinity in the everyday.

    Lookin’ good 5th Ave.! I am anxious to see/read more. I recently read a book Linda M/E suggested. “The Girls From Ames” and it dealt with long term womens’ friendships. It made me think of how close we were back in the day. Those crazy 70’s!

    I recently did some work with the bear Goddess Artio. Your Targette encounter was a mother-bear moment for sure! Look sharp if you dare to mess with those in her care.

    I’ve subscribed to see when updates are made, so will keep on the lookout for news.

    Congratulations on birthing a new adventure Lori! May all the power and positive energy you need to achieve your goal be with you now.

    Blessings, Cindy

    Oh my goodness….I love your blog! I have Namaste tattooed on my arm (in Sanskrit) and a couple of Om symbols here and there :). I love that your daughter misheard you and Mamaste was born. Great messages here….I need to poke around some :). Hope to connect with you in person some day!
