Penelope Queen of Ithaca

Penelope, one of Homer's immortal women, was the paragon of marital fidelity — a serious and industrious character, a devoted wife and mother. She was rich. She was beautiful. She had 108 suitors inside her house, asking her hand in marriage.


Ethically made pieces offer the opportunity to invest in exceptional clothing that have been consciously crafted and last forever. 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.


The Pre-order model enables us to sustainably meet supply and demand, avoiding waste and extra stocks at the end of the season. We can adjust manufacturing needs and quantities to what your taste really is, and this leads to an almost zero stock scenario at the end of each season.

This way we can move onto the next season light and fresh and we ensure no stocks are accumulated. Waste and stock accumulation is one of the red flags of the fashion industry and this is our alternative way to that, because we believe that what we do must contribute to a cleaner world, not the other way around.

As we operate with Pre-Order the estimated shipping time is clearly stated on the product at the moment of purchase.
When a product is not on Pre-Order, that means that shipping will be completed within the next 1-2 business days.
For Pre-Order products, please allow a certain deviation on timing that can happen either way, this meaning products can arrive earlier than expected or slightly later.
