"amusement, especially as expressed in laughter."

Through several years of travel and exploration, Katie McClure and Erin Breen landed in India, where they were inspired by the country’s vibrant communities, rich culture and heritage textiles.

On that initial trip, Erin and Katie both found “mirth.” There they also discovered their newfound mission: to launch their clothing line, MIRTH, which they did in 2016.

With a modern take on traditional techniques, like handloom weaving & hand block printing, MIRTH’s mission is to help sustain and celebrate craft while providing opportunity and meaningful employment to artisans in developing countries.

MIRTH is based in Houston, TX, USA.



The majority of MIRTH fabrics are handmade in some way and sourced from artisan communities, with each fabric telling its own unique story. We collaborate with makers to design our own fabrics. Nearly all aspects of creation happen in rural villages, helping to sustain heritage techniques practiced in families for generations, and bringing consistent and dignified work to these communities.

It is crucial to MIRTH to approach work with a socially conscious spirit, to be positive influences for creators and buyers, and to provide a source of joy and mirth to everyone along the way.
