MATE Vintage is the collaborative creation of best friends Kayti O’Connell and Kelsey Tudor who have parlayed their shared love of vintage clothing and philanthropy into a vintage retailer with a cause. Founded in 2011, MATE Vintage specializes in bringing a carefully curated collection of vintage tees to fashion loving individuals with an affinity for past eras. MATE Vintage strives to simplify the vintage hunt by bringing online customers the most coveted vintage items on the market.
In 2012, Kayti and Kelsey decided to grow their concept and develop a way to make a larger impact. MATE is now working with a select group of brands to bring customers Collaborations with a Cause. Brands featured in the Shop work with the girls to design exclusive items, only available for MATE customers! Each featured brand then picks a charity for a portion of the proceeds to be donated. The girls intend to keep MATE a carefully chosen collection of items for the free-spirited, vintage inspired and uniquely mindful.
