Mi Cocina was born out of necessity. In 2014, after over 25 years of designing for brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Diane von Furstenberg, Nike, Coach, and then finally his label called Ubi-Ind Denim, Ulrich "Ubi" Simpson had his AHHA moment in the kitchen. Sleepily cooking early morning breakfasts for his young family--and occasionally burning himself--Ubi thought, everyone's cooking and none of the products are functional. It was then that he saw an opportunity in the market for durable, modern-looking kitchen products that are made for everyday use. The Mi Cocina collection is made from denim that is washed, sewn, and laser etched to create a simple, modern aesthetic with no nonsense function and timeless appeal.
