Meet Our Launch Collaborators! is thrilled to have collaborated with a fabulous group of talented artists and designers for our launch.  Bravo and thanks to you all!

Madeleine Ignon:  Madeleine is a super-talented artist, graphic designer and illustrator based in LA who created the graphics for our site and for our beCausegoods line of T’s and sweats for the entire family.  Her work is truly inspiring.

AQC by Lissa Zwahlen Thoeny:  Surf style with attitude. This simple statement describes the reworked T’s created by stylist and designer Lissa Zwahlen Thoeny via her new personal brand, AQC (Aquarius Cocktail). Lissa helped define what we now know as surf style via her work with some of SoCal’s hottest brands, and helped to create Roxy for Quiksilver, the first large scale female brand in surf culture.

DeNev Designs by Megan Wussow:  Colorado artist Megan Wussow of DeNev Designs created a special group of Prayer Bead necklaces for beCause.  Based on traditional Hindu or Buddhist “Mala’s” or prayer beads with 108 beads, Megan hand-carves and hand casts every single one of the charm “guru beads”, hand sets any stones, and knots each of the 108 stones on every strand.

Dish Studio by Jody Guralnick:  Acclaimed painter Jody Guralnick created an exclusive collection of table art by Dish Studio for beCause based around a question from a favorite poem. The question appears in parts and pieces on the items, along with lists of things Jody finds near and dear. Each piece is unique, hand patterned, painted, glazed, and fired in Jody’s Aspen, Colorado studio.

Momo by ALM and Tetsu Okubu:  Momo by ALM is an exclusive casual brand that focuses on creating items from repurposed materials.  For beCause, Tetsu worked together with Shaun Smith of LA Beanie company on knit items made totally of recycled yarn. Tetsu then added his special touch of whimsy with his exclusive "beCause" patches.  Tetsu also worked directly with beCausegoods to create a ridiculously cute group of infant and Toddler items – of course, available only on

Shebee Jewelry by Ann Spence:  Women who wear SheBee love to express their own individual sense of style, much like designer Ann Spence herself. Inspired by her adventurous grandmother, Ann adds her own sense of drama and feminine flair to her designs. We’re proud to welcome her bold and beautiful creations to beCause.

Yato Hand Painted Porcelain by Bea Corteel:  Working from her studio in Cannes, Bea turns vintage fine French porcelain items into modern and poetic tabletop art.   Bea interpreted the beCause message into an exclusive collection of unique servingware.  Each piece is unique, and signed and numbered by Bea.

We love new collaborations!  If you’re an artist or designer that’s interested in creating some exclusive product for us, please contact us at with your ideas.
