The Mise Tusa Mission
Mise Tusa meaning 'me you' in Irish represents connection
Our mission is to nourish individuality in all women and support a feeling of confidence and connection
Honouring craft, community and environment
Timeless design that is mindfully created
Harnessing over 35 years experience in design to create collections that combine timeless design, elevated quality and Irish practicality.
We are passionate about design that lifts the spirits, feeds the soul and allow us to creatively express our true selves.
Mise Tusa is designed and made in our west of Ireland studio.
Community and Collaboration
A big part of the inspiration behind Mise Tusa was to create a community where women from all walks of life can come together, to share experiences, creations, passions and connect with eachother. A space where every women's individuality is celebrated.
Having been in business for over 30 years with Ail Ruin Design centre Meritta has met diverse and wonderful women and it is this connection and community that Mise Tusa builds on.
We are delighted to be able to showcase the work of selected Irish makers and creators and a carefully selected number of brands who inspire us and align with our values.
Make Good Choices
There is a dark side to fashion and it can be hard to distinguish between honest commitments to do better and marketing greenwashing. Even with the best intentions, a business achieving full sustainability is undoubtedly a challenge but a challenge we must all rise to. As a small Irish business, we have taken several steps to root our values of craft, community and environment as the foundation of Mise Tusa. We continue to educate ourselves on what we can do better and look forward to sharing this journey with you.
Designer and creative director Meritta founded Ail Ruin design centre in 1995 and Bridget grew up on the shop floor learning from and helping her mom before gaining an academic background in law and going on to work in marketing for an internationally renowned luxury retailer.
Mise Tusa marks an exciting next step where we embark on a new journey together as business partners.
Both Meritta and Bridget are qualified yoga teachers and work to integrate the philosophy of yoga into personal and business life.
It takes a truly talented team to bring the Mise Tusa vision to life! As a small family business our team and wider community are central to everything we do and we feel incredibly lucky to have such a fabulous team
