Hi! I'm Eva.

I'm a born and raised Julian local.


Spelling isn't my thing, but it doesn't stop me from defying gravity.  I am on a lifetime journey to become the best version of authentic myself. 


Today I'm having the time of my life living out the American Dream as an entrepreneur, elected official, and full-time commuter college student.  

In my free time, I love giving back to my community whenever possible.

“A river cuts through rock, not because of its power, but because of its persistence.”

Mountain Made is a small business nestled in the San Diego mountain town of Julian, CA founded and operated by lifetime Julian local, me, Eva Hatch.


It is my mission to provide a quality line of locally-made merchandise that allows you to bring home a piece of the mountains and support the local community through your purchase.


Whether you're a visitor, new to town, or a lifetime local, together we can create a more vibrant tomorrow for the town of Julian.

“Grit, the power of passion and perseverance.”

—Angela Lee Duckworth
