BEHIND THE NAME
Delos is a Greek island and archaeological site in the Aegean Sea's Cyclades archipelago, near Mykonos. Between 900 BC and 100 AD, Delos was a major cult centre where Dionysus and Leto, mother of the twins Apollo and Artemis, were revered.
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.
