Our dedication to ethical production and innovation means we are always looking for new ways of bringing sustainability into our design methods, while also creating the most beautiful product possible. Now is the time to search for answers, for alternatives.
"As an architect and designer, I feel I have to take responsibility for my creations and find the best solutions to help empower the industry at large and bring more sustainable practices into reality.
It has been something that I’ve been personally and professionally on a journey to find the best possible practices. The silk production has so much heritage, worth preserving, but at times it can be damaging to the environment. I always want to move forward, while respecting the past, therefore our MIA PAPA signature woven silk, is truly a moment to celebrate for the future of fashion.”
Finding an alternative: Peace Silk
Peace silk is made from short lengths from broken off cocoons, gathered by small family farms and twisted together to make yarn, respecting the silkworm's circle of life, as it is able to turn into a moth, emerge alive from its cocoon and become a butterfly, completing its full transformation.
