Our Story

OUR FOUNDERS

We are two active and gritty entrepreneurs. We have a lot in common: we're both moms; we love fashion; we love to laugh; we love to find the beauty in every woman we meet; we love to run, hike, bike and ski and we have incredible energy.

Each time we trained together, we talked about what we wanted in athletic apparel: safety, sun protection, a place to store your phone, great fabric and compression in the right places. Most of all, we wanted to look our best so we could perform even better…no matter where we were or what we were doing. We wanted to look elegant and fit. We wanted to look sporty chic. We wanted clothing with function. We wanted to create an inclusive group of women that empower one another and share their stories.

We created an engaged community of women that work together, support each other and teach future generations what inclusivity looks like, what activated your power within feels like and what it means to be part of a brand that celebrates the stories of each woman as she finds her strength.

We wanted a company that reflected our values and our beliefs and the women that surround and inspire us. We proudly design and manufacture our product in San Diego, California, minutes from our offices in Solana Beach. Women who wear GRACEDBYGRIT feel powerful, confident, safe and motivated to be active. We understand what it takes to be a woman.  We celebrate the strength and power behind every woman.

OUR BRAND

GRACEDBYGRIT activates the power within each woman to cultivate her GRIT and find her GRACE. We design and manufacture premium athletic apparel to make women look incredible and feel confident in Southern California.

We are a company that reflects our values, our beliefs and the women that surround and inspire us. We are an engaged community that work together, support each other and teach future generations what inclusivity looks like, what activating your power within feels like and what it means to be part of a brand that celebrates the stories of each woman as she finds her strength.

Our inclusive community of women who wear GRACEDBYGRIT feel powerful, confident, safe and motivated to be active. We understand what it takes to be a woman.  We celebrate the strength and power behind every woman’s gritty moment. Women who have GRIT invest in themselves, make fitness and health a priority, and aspire to be their best authentic selves, not only for their own well being, but for the people they love and the causes to which they are dedicated.

Every woman has a story. Every woman has experienced a difficult moment that she thinks might just break her. How we make it through those moments defines us. Our grittiest moments give us our GRACE. Every woman has been GRACEDBYGRIT.

OUR NAME & LOGO

People often ask how the the name GRACEDBYGRIT came to be. At the brand’s inception, we knew we wanted to emphasize the idea that every woman has at least one gritty moment that can make or break her. How she gets through that moment is what defines her – it is through grit that she finds her grace.

When it came time to develop a logo, we discovered that the seabird is the quintessential symbol of everything we love and stand for: the ocean, grand adaptability, fierce motherhood and gracefulness. Seabirds and women alike come in all shapes and sizes, vary in lifestyle and behavior and are inherently adaptive to cope with their quickly evolving surroundings. Seabirds invest deeply into their young. This resonates with the heart of GRACEDBYGRIT and our incredible community of strong women.
