Alejandra Oyervides is the designer and owner of Muluk (pronounce ‘moo-look’), a Portland based handmade hat company. Alejandra creates fashionable and comfortably soft hats that add style to any outfit and season.
Alejandra (Ale) started making fashion hats in 2008. When her first daughter was born, coudn't find the right hat for her. She wanted to find something soft and fashionable, that would also protect her whole head. So, Ale designed a hat that would do these three things and the foundation for Muluk was set. She picked the name Muluk because it is the Mayan word for moon and she wanted her creations to bring light into the hearts and minds of the people who chose her products.
As more people and stores started ordering the hats, Ale realized that her hats were selling not only as fashion hats for the general public, but also as full coverage hats for people experiencing hairloss due to cancer or other illnesses. She feels especially proud to share her products of light and hope with chemo patients. Muluk offers a special line of hats, used by people experiencing hair loss caused by chemotherapy, alopecia, lupus, radiation or surgical treatment.
Ale feels fulfilled when she sees how happy her hats make her clients. “When my customers wear my hats, they feel strong and bright and their own beauty shines through even more. I feel honored to support the inner strength of my customers.”
Muluk’s hats are handmade with love from our hands to your head
