Hi and welcome to Mulier™ ! My name is Sandra X. Martin and I’m the owner and designer of the Cozy Joey by Mulier™.
I am a mom of two, a parenting coach by day and the Cozy Joey designer by night. I have no previous training in fashion or design, but I followed my instincts that there were many moms like me challenged by poor outerwear and unsuitable coverage for both baby-wearing mamas and their babes. My perspective and mindset as a coach influences the lens by which I look at things and so I decided to “lean in” to this opportunity and be a part of creating a solution (www.SelfBalancedSolutions.com)
I was inspired to create the 3-in-1 Cozy Joey coat from my own lessons of baby-wearing and inadequate outerwear with my two winter babies. I kind of started obsessing over the idea because I was living it – trying to make due with make-shift outerwear and layers from my husband’s larger coats and cardigan sweaters – which of course made me feel huge and unflattering. I experienced firsthand the many months of cold & unpredictable weather with inadequate outerwear for both me and my babies. So, I pulled the trigger from idea to execution to meet the needs of new moms and 2nd time moms juggling the beautiful, intimate, and sometimes not-so-easy experience of baby-wearing.
I’ve now designed for all moms a multi-purpose outer garment that is classic, feminine, fashionable and timeless for the style conscious mom who wants to babywear and preserve her sense of self. Truly, there is nothing more beautiful and nurturing than being able to wear your baby – regardless of weather and season. I am proud of what I have accomplished and standby my design as I share this with many great mamas.
My journey is in great thanks to the support of family and friends, with an extra special LOVE to the unwavering support and confidence of my husband. I am VERY proud to share that Mulier™ is a crowd-funding success story and I was able to start production right away and shipped out my first coats at the start of 2015! Check out the video!
