How we started
Our founder, Kate, started Meirako (Formerly Tiny Zen Memory) in 2018 after an experience with a friend.
Meirako originated from the unfortunate loss of her close friend’s father. Kate made a necklace with the word
—a word her friend's father had repeatedly used to articulate his affection for her friend - in the last letter he wrote before he passed away.
When she witnessed the overwhelming emotions her friend linked to the necklace, she was convinced that more people could benefit from the same joyous experience.
