The Mira Jean Story
Kate Hougen launched Mira Jean Designs in 2014 to bring together her passion for design with her love of nature. As a former Director of Marketing at the Nature Conservancy, Kate blends inspiration from nature, her children and loving memories of coastal vacations to create luxurious textiles by the yard, wallpaper and home decor products on 100% GOTS-certified organic fabrics that are made in the USA. Every product design begins with a painting, and every painting begins in nature.
Mira Jean Designs has been featured in Traditional Home, The Washington Post, DC by Design, Pattern Observer, Fast Company, Home & Design Magazine, Alexandria Stylebook, Arlington Magazine, Northern Virginia Magazine and more. In 2014, Mira Jean Designs was recognized as a Martha Stewart American Made nominee. In 2015, the company was included in the new Made in Arlington TV series. Most recently, in 2017, Kate was a featured speaker at the DC Design House.
