ABOUT OUR COMPANY
At Moorea Seal, we believe in investing in communities, celebrating stories, and giving back through all that we do. Since our beginning in 2013, we have invested in handmade and US-made goods, representing over 150 designers from clothing to jewelry, accessories, gifts and more. We donate 7% of all proceeds to non-profits in five different categories; Women's Causes, Children's Needs, Environmental Issues, Animal causes, and Health-related needs. To learn about how we give back visit the Do Good, Do Great page.
In 2013, cousins Moorea Seal, our namesake, CEO and Creative Director, and Reed Wasser, our CFO and Business Development Director, decided to make their life long dream of starting a business together a reality. Within two weeks, they knew they needed one more person to complete the leadership trifecta that would launch our company which brought our COO Jenette Donovan, to our team. With Moorea's previous experience as a social media influencer, jewelry production and design, and involvement in the handmade community on Etsy combined with Jenette's experience in operation management and online retail, and Reed's experience in traditional marketing and business strategy, and our common desire to support non-profits and create positive change in the world that our company was formed. Not soon after, core members to our operations team, Tram and Jessie joined to build our company from the ground up. In the years since, our original group of three, then five has grown to many more, but the core five still remain, five years later.
In 2014, due to outgrowing our first little studio, our swift growing online community, and in a desire to connect more deeply to those within the city we live in, we decided to start our first storefront. The first Moorea Seal shop opened in May of 2014 and within six months, we had to expand our offices and storefront again to meet the engagement level of our online and in-store customers! We fell in love with YOU as you fell for us too.
By early 2017, we came to realize again that the little space in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle had become too small for our growing company. So we took on the exciting adventure of building out a storefront and offices from scratch in the historic 125-year-old Standard building in the heart of downtown Seattle. And that is exactly where you will find us today — at the flagship Moorea Seal store at 1012 1st Ave, Seattle, WA.
Tour our storefront! Our store is not only a place to shop all of our gorgeous wares in person, but a space for our greater community to engage with one another through creative events. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list to be the first to hear when we are hosting pop up shops, workshops, and special events. Our Anniversary party every year is not one to be missed!
