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 fixture that plans to be around for a very long time.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our philosophy is to never settle. From our designs to our outlook on the future. Whether it be creating new designs for Hella Bay or Hella Bay at Footlocker , or our presence all over the Bay Area at different Festivals and PopUps, I love what I do, and love the fact that Ive been blessed enough to share my passion for Bay Area fashion with the rest of 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!"
