Hey, we’re Mache. We design beautiful yoga mat storage that supports your practice. Made out of recycled materials, our home practice tube will keep your mat clean, tidy, and ready to unroll. Why? Because just like you, we love our yoga practice. And we believe hopping on the mat every day should be easy.
Like a good yoga practice, we’re growing—so stay in touch. Submit a survey (above) or sign up for our quarterly newsletter (below) to receive first dibs on our MacheHome line (coming out this Fall), along with totally tubular discounts! We’re currently on the hunt for the world's premier yoga studios and affiliates to work with along the way. Interested? Contact us.
Brienne Derosier balances her career in interior design with a strong yoga practice, and a lifelong love of wellness. As co-founder of Mache, Brie aims to bring a sense of “truth in materials” to her recycled, eco-friendly designs, and to ensure that they are manufactured and consumed in a way that is symbiotic with the planet.
Brie earned both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in Architecture and Interior Architecture from the University of Oregon. She also founded 2Yoke Design, a multidisciplinary creative house specializing in Interior Wellness Design for the home and workplace. After seven successful years designing in the PNW, Brie shifted focus to co-found Mache with her friend of almost 16 years, Courtney Tysell, and expand on her love of creating with recycled materials. In addition to her long career in design, Brie is a certified yoga instructor and has been leading classes everywhere from nature trails out in the wild, to conference rooms during lunch breaks. Brie feels that her strength as a designer comes from her ability to balance work with yoga, and is delighted at how these two practices inform and nurture each other.
The daughter of a doctor and a dancer, wellness is in Courtney’s DNA. Her extensive education in environmental science and design, along with her commitment to the planet, and love of community-building have culminated in co-founding Mache.
Raised in California and educated in Oregon, Courtney has worked across many fields ranging from landscape design to a career in the culinary arts. In her various titles, Courtney has found that what connects her interests is the study of wellness. Just as every one person’s actions affect others, so does the knowledge and expertise from one experience to the other. Each iteration of her career has been a natural step stemming from her lifelong love and study of health, movement, and design.
Before embarking on Mache, Courtney joined Brienne Derosier at 2Yoke Design. Together they created eco- and health-conscious homes, yoga studios, health clinics, farm-to-table restaurants, ergonomic workplaces and co-housing communities. Courtney is also a certified yoga instructor, an accomplished chef, and a renowned event-planner.
