OUR STORY

Bay Area Lifestyle brand by an actual Bay Area native.

OUR MISSION

Drawing out inspiration from the spirit and streets of the Bay Area, our mission is to produce quality clothing that mixes sophistication and street culture at an affordable price.

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Hella Bay Clothing was established in 2015 by Hayward native Teresa Kimbrough out of her bedroom. From a pipe dream with around three designs to a growing , thriving business, Hella Bay Clothing is a Bay Area picture that plans to be around for a very long time.

OUR APPROACH

Our approach is simple, provide quality clothing at an affordable price.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Be good to others and life will be good to you.

"I am proud to be both a black female business owner living and working here in Oakland. I am also proud and blessed that Hella Bay Clothing was able to weather the pandemic, which would not have happened without the support of my community. I love the Bay Area, and I love Oakland. Nowhere else has the culture and community unity, that I was blessed to grow up surrounded by. If you see me out at one of our local PopUps or Festivals, or even at Somar or Make Westing having a drink, please stop by and say hello. Sending light and love to all of you!"
