As a traveler, designer of sustainable home goods, and yoga teacher, Domenica finds creativity, service, and loving community to be the most valuable experiences life has to offer. She founded Mima Studios in Oaxaca, Mexico in 2016, as a design studio focused on sustainably produced products for the home. Since then, she has been working and building relationships with artisans throughout the pueblos of Oaxaca and bringing these experiences back with her to New York.
