Responsible Brand: MIAKODA

I’ve featured Miakoda New York here before, because I genuinely am a fan and customer but I wanted to do a better overview of the brand — who they are, where they’re from, what they’re about — because it’s important to “know” the people or heart behind the business whenever possible, so you can have a little more transparency with what you’re choosing and where you’re putting your dollar. 

This super dreamy, breezy ensemble is in fact two pieces from the brand; The Tee and Slim Fit Joggers, both in white (which is more of an off white or cream and perfect if you like white but your lifestyle doesn’t) but chances are if you’ve ever seen me in person or popped by any given time on a weekend, you would find me in a pair of their infamous slouchies, like harem pants but super chic.

There’s no quiestion, I love MIAKODA because of their efforts in responsible fashion. Their collections are all made sustainably with eco-friendly plant fibres (GOTS certified organic cotton, but also soy, modal, and the beloved bamboo) and also ethically, being manufactured locally in New York where they have relationships with not only the factory owners but the garment workers who are of legal age, professionally paid, well treated, and working in both safe and ethical work environments (not cheap for the brands).

Another, not as easy on the wallet business choice that I totally love is minimal, environmentally friendly shipping and packing methods which they also practice. But of course they do! Every step of their business is truly and visibly thought out, top to bottom, in a responsible manner. For more of their efforts, find full details: here!

As a petite shopper, especially, I wanted to mention an increasingly important aspect of a brand and that’s representation. Getting your hands on responsible fashion, more often than not, can be via online shopping. Which is hard enough as is but even more concerning when you’re potentially paying heavy shipping charges, not to mention the occasional taxes and duties. I appreciate that their clothing is shown on models of different body types and that they’ve been dedicated to representing varying ethnicities, heights, shape, etc.!
