I design pieces that transition easily from work to play with textural details and modern lines. My goal is to make women feel confident and stand out from the crowd with flattering and comfortable pieces, and I personally test drive each style before producing it. I believe in supporting domestic manufacturing to minimize our carbon footprint. I also often use fabric leftover from mills and mass production.
My work stems from the ancient tradition of ornament as expression of higher self. Each piece, hand fabricated from raw metal and powerful stones, is a unique gesture. Cultures rise and fall but their sacred adornments outlast the gods they were made to venerate. The desire to adorn is as old as humanity and is an impulse that deserves to be honored.

Kali Made Garments are designed with your unpredictable life in mind - refined styling infused with chill California vibes.

The jackets and shirts are cut for movement and grace, and the true beauty is found in the everyday utility of the garments.

Lotfi bags are designed by Sharareh Lotfi in San Francisco and produced in Oakland. Founded in 2011, Lotfi was originally conceived as a women’s clothing line. Following the birth of her daughter, Sharareh was drawn to the idea of creating a minimal, un-fussy carry-all that was practical without being boring. Using simple materials like canvas and cotton rope, Lotfi bags are designed for daily use with an eye to those details that elevate every-day staples into treasured objects.
All of the materials that go into making these bags are sourced locally and domestically when possible. I use #10 waxed canvas from Martexin, a family business that has been producing the fabric since the 1800’s. The liner fabric is surplus from the Carhartt factory. The sturdy, bridle weight leather used for handles and straps is US sourced and from a local California business. The hardware is solid brass and comes from another family business in the Midwest. The bags are constructed with double seams for durability, and areas that get the most stress are reinforced with solid brass rivets.
