There’s a little bit of ourselves
in every product
we develop.

That often means
we’ve made ourselves vulnerable.
Criticism of the product
is often viewed
as criticism of ourselves.
It is part of being a creator.

Mary Lai,
founder of

“I have a lot of women
who I have bonded with
over my products.
It’s a reflection of who I am,
so I like putting that out there.
It’s personal and feels really special
to provide a product for someone
that they can wear and enjoy,
and come back and buy more
because they love it.
It’s an intimate experience
and I really like it.
It’s also really scary
and makes you feel vulnerable.
But I’ve found that
it’s good to be vulnerable
and put yourself out there.”

Vulnerability is part of creating.
Expect this.
