BEHIND THE NAME
Aphrodite was a Greek Goddess associated with love, beauty, pleasure, passion and procreation. A marble group of Aphrodite with Pan and Eros, called as 'Aphrodite of Delos', (about 100 BC) found on Delos Island.
Delos island is one of the most important mythological, historical, and archaeological sites in Greece. In 1990, UNESCO inscribed Delos on the World Heritage List, citing it as the "exceptionally extensive and rich" archaeological site which "conveys the image of a great cosmopolitan Mediterranean port".
Ethical made pieces offer the opportunity to invest in exceptional clothing that have been consciously crafted and last forever. This summer caftan being 100% hand-printed in Soufli, Greece and hand-stitched in-house at our Athens ateliers, is a key piece for an elegant woman’s wardrobe.
For Mia Papaefthimiou setting up MIA PAPA as an ethical and ‘slow’ fashion brand dedicated to sustainable practices considering both people working on it and the planet was mandatory. For this reason the brand has collaborated from day one with expertized local artisans who craft the entire production line by hand, from sewing to printing.
