The Creator

Valérie Hernandez

It is the story of a French girl, living the American Dream by following her own dreams. Having worked as a designer in the sports fashion industry for many years, Valérie Hernandez decided to continue her life’s journey on her own path.

Led by her free spirit and fierce passion, she founded La Méricaine in 2014: a collection of beautiful capes and blankets inspired by the Native American tribes who wear similar heavy wool coats for their entire lives: from birth to marriage until death. For them, life is a journey with no end. Embark on it.
