BEHIND THE NAME
Aegle was the daughter of Asclepius and Epione, sister of Iaso, Hygieia, Panacea and Aceso. Her name is said to have derived from "Αἴγλη" ("Aegle"), meaning "Brightness," or "Splendor," from the beauty of the human body when in good health.
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.
