Sustainability

Philosophy & Core Values of MIRYAM 

  

We care- from the design process until you got your hands on the pieces. 

We design timelessly chic and classic pieces that can be worn beyond the season. We believe in investing in good high-quality staple pieces to build your closet and style with.

We produce in limited quantites and on Pre-Order basis to avoid overproduction and waste. We also try to use our fabrics throughout different seasons to limit textile waste.

Materials 

For special details we use GOTS-certified mother of pearl buttons and recycled satin labels for wash and care instructions inside the piece of clothing. Those last ones are printed in an environmentally friendly manner in the UK (production works completely without water or gas).

 

Ethical Production

We´ve been working with our local german tailors since 2018/ 2019 now. They work from home in their own ateliers. Our first samples arise in collaborative work. Exclusive designs that require a lot of hand stitching are also made here. For our production and duplications we are working with a small family factory in Italy. We keep close contact with them during the whole production process.


Packaging 

Our tissue paper and label stickers are FSC-certified and printed on acid free paper with soy based colors. Our shipping cartons are eco-friendly recycled cartons, printed with water-based colors. In our whole transportation and storage process we don't use any plastic. The pieces get transported via truck from Italy to our certified organic warehouse in Germany.
