About the Store

The Moorea Seal store is a curated selection of beautiful accessories and objects, highlighting handmade artists from the United States alongside carefully selected goods from across the globe. Taking inspiration from our home base in Seattle, WA, the adventuresome spirit of the great Pacific Northwest, our aesthetic is a fresh, chic, and sleek approach to modern women's accessories and decor with a touch of rustic sensibility.  We seek to do good beyond the material, creating a community that empowers and supports others. 7% of all proceeds from our store benefit five non profit categories, all of which are close to our hearts.
