At Silver Lining we collaborate with artists to create classic clothing paired with brilliant custom linings. Our apparel and bags are made with artisan craftsmanship from heritage quality materials right here in the USA.
Why the lining? We believe in the adage "It's What's Inside that Counts" and we wanted to find a way to celebrate and keep this message of inner beauty close. Silver Lining gives 6% back to support Arts Education. Learn more about our social mission.
We work with factories in Los Angeles and northern California to craft our apparel from the finest leathers and fabrics. We are proud to work with a small group of artisans who have been making quality goods for over forty years. No detail is overlooked from the placement of pockets, buttons and reinforced stitching.
The thoughtfulness of design extends to the quality of both domestic and imported materials that we use: antique nickel buttons from Italy, Japanese silk ribbon, California Nappa leather, organic cotton and soft wool flannel, all make Silver Lining products luxurious to the touch and imbued with the utmost comfort and durability.
Rel lavizzo-Mourey: Designer & Founder
Rel has been doodling and sketching since she was old enough to hold a crayon. She came up with the idea for the company after recalling the feeling of secret joy when school recess was rained out and students were made to stay inside to work on arts projects... this was her first "Silver Lining" moment. Rel has worked on past product collaborations with major fashion designers such as Marc Jacobs, Missoni and Vivienne Westwood among others. She's very excited to work with Cassandra, whom she's known for over twenty years. Rel studied Education Policy and Visual Arts at Princeton and has an MBA from the Wharton School. Rel is based in San Francisco.
