Our Story

"Jesus turned water into wine so that I could turn my struggles into sunshine..."

Tocayo is honestly more of a testimony than a brand and our snake logo is reminiscent of the scar that exists above my left ear.

Back in 2021 I had brain surgery to remove a tumor resting on my facial nerve. The result of this caused weakness on the left side of my face; leaving me unable to fully blink or smile. I began wearing sunglasses more often to compensate for this insecurity and functional disability.

Sunglasses helped restore my confidence and allowed me to cope with my new appearance. Now, I have the pleasure of making others feel just as confident as I do. Starting this brand has been a celebration of personal resilience, of my community who supported me, & God who got me through it all.
