In celebration of International Women’s Day, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite products made by female founders.
This day is obviously about so much more than just wearing a stylish tee with a catchy message. But there’s something about supporting other women-owned businesses and wearing eye-catching products that empower both yourself and those who see you wearing it.

Alex of High Moon Studio is a super talented brand designer with a really cool Shop section of her site. A portion of the proceeds from the Female Founder Collection will be donated to Girlboss, a community of strong, curious, and ambitious women redefining success on our own terms.
“Since launching in 2014, the Girlboss Foundation has awarded over $130,000 in financial grants to female-identifying entrepreneurs, empowering them to turn their innovative ideas into the companies that will shape the future.”
I picked this “Badass Babes Club” tee at Camp Climb this past August and it’s one of my very faves to wear. It’s super soft, high-quality, and gives me a confidence boost. There are lots of other great options on her site, too!
LWP’s Founder, Adriana, is a fun-loving, powerhouse of a business owner. The company spreads her mission of kindness and a “nice girl gang” through their adorable beaded word bracelets. Check-out this limited-edition collection, perfect for International Women’s Day.
I’ve watched STIL’s founder, Marisa, over the years and have been able to connect with her on multiple occasions. She’s so generous, uplifting, and a true visionary. This winter she just opened an official brick & mortar shop space in Gastown in Vancouver and I couldn’t be happier for her. Check out all of STIL’s amazing creations that come with the benefit of a more organized life.
This is another women-owned business I’ve loved following over the years. Their products celebrate faith, grace, women empowerment, and a hefty dose of collegiate pride. I love seeing their collaboration with Madison Prewett of the Bachelor this year, too!
This cropped RELENTLESS hoodie is a such a good reminder to never give up on your dreams and beliefs.
06 – Mazévo Wines
I loved getting to work with this female-founded wine company this winter. Co-owner, Lindsey Combs, is such a kind, sweet soul with a big heart for bringing people together.
It’s not yet widely distributed, but if you live in Southern California, keep an eye out for it!
07 – ROEN Candles
The minimalist aesthetic of these high-end candles has been catching my eye on Instagram and it all started with a female founder, Brit Roennigke, after having her second child. Their candles also burn clean with a 40-hour burn time! I’m particularly loving their new feminine-feeling blush capsule collection.
This one isn’t a “small” business by any means but I’ve been hearing a lot of amazing things about what the female founders of Good American are up to. (I’m dying to try a pair of their jeans – which are committed to fit for ALL body types).
09 – Flobody Fitness
I also met Flobody’s co-founder, Janie Kokakis at Camp Climb in August of 2019 and adored her from the get-go. When she told me all about the at-home all-in-one “gym” she and her husband created, I was so impressed. It’s the perfect thing to roll out and give yourself a bit of ‘you’ time before diving back into that to-do list.
I hope you found a new product to love and we’d love to hear some of your favorites in the comments below!
