Quality, timelessness and practicality are the strongest motivations for Mimi Holvast garments, which translates through our fabric choices. By sourcing only natural fibre fabrics from Australian Textile agents, we are supporting local businesses and the fashion industry in Australia, while maintaining the ability to stay small scale and conscious of waste, excess fabric & avoid dead stock within collections.
The Textile agents we work with work closely with the fabric manufacturers in Japan, China & New Zealand to provide the highest quality fabrics and to ensure that all working conditions in all steps of production can be overseen & endorsed.
All garments are made from either Linen, Cotton, a Linen / Cotton blend, Silk, or Wool. These natural fibres are far better for the environment than polyester and nylon alternatives — in terms of their production & after-life effect.
All fabric scraps from the MH studio are kept & recycled for smaller items, such as Scrunchies, and other small projects, both personal & future concepts. We have started a compost system for smaller fabric scraps, to return to the earth naturally, and not contribute to landfill where possible.
To prolong the life and quality of your Mimi Holvast garment, we recommend following the suggested washing instructions.
Linen and Linen/Cotton Blend - hand wash in warm water or cold gentle machine wash, drip dry inside out in shade, warm iron, do not bleach, wring or tumble dry
