About Om Gaia Tree
Om Gaia Tree and MurKobEyE designs are created by Miss Murray and her beloved, JacobEyE. The couple met around 2005 through a mutual friend at a music festival. Their bond grew as they seemingly found each other time and time again at gatherings, concerts, festivals, on Kauai, and finally, as co-workers in the construction of Abraxas, a notorious Burning Man art car. They eventually became each others’ ultimate traveling companion.
It wasn’t until a trip to Bali in 2007 when the couple started to design clothing. It blossomed organically from the simple need and desire for comfortable, fun, and funk-tional travel wear. They involved local families and their Balinese culture with the small-run production. They later brought these designs to friends, family, and, now, to the greater visionary culture of the festivals that they attend.
Although Om Gaia Tree began with women’s clothing, the demand for original men's clothes, and JacobEyE’s unique style seemed to be a perfect fit. Naturally, the Mur-Kob-EyE men's line became an integral part of Om Gaia Tree. This name, “murkobeye” came from the name Murray and JacobEyE called their first baby, while he was in the womb. Murkobeye was the perfect combination of their names so it, in turn, it also became a great name for the new men's clothing line. Now, Murray and JacobEyE have two children and are based in Bend, Oregon.
In sum, what began as a simple desire for stylish, comfortable clothing to live in, spiraled into the creation of Om Gaia Tree, reaching yogis, dancers, and lovers of life on an international scale. Murray and Jacob feel so blessed to provide their offerings to such a unique and widespread community!

About the origin of our company's name:
The name "Om Gaia Tree" was inspired by Miss Murray, on a bike ride in Sukothai, Thailand. She was humbled by the beauty of the land and giving thanks to Gaia, the earth goddess, for creating such splendor. She was also moved by her studies of yoga and the Gayatri mantra, a sanskrit mantra that honors the Great Spirit, and requests divine intellect. While chanting of the mantra, she envisioned a human, grounding her feet into Gaia, growing tall, strong and wise like a tree - raising her limbs to the sky and spreading them wide, soaking it all in. It was then that she felt oneness with the universal vibration and said, "OM, Gaia, Tree." That vision led to the development our our unique logo, a tree of life with it's roots feeding it's branches in an endless cycle of oneness.
