Mahalin Shreds began when two friends, Lorie from Modesto and Cynthia from San Diego, connected online during COVID in 2020. Lorie joined Cynthia's virtual fitness classes, and their friendship bloomed instantly. In the summer of 2021, Lorie visited Cynthia, and the following year, Cynthia visited Lorie.They discovered they had a lot in common—they're both Filipino, into fitness as POUND and REFIT instructors, artistic in their own ways, and share a love for bracelets. They can't get enough of them! This shared passion led to Mahalin Shreds—a joint venture creating custom bracelets with fabric shreds or beads, filled with love and creativity. Each bracelet tells a story of their friendship, combining art, fitness, and the joy of connecting with others.
