We chose to set up our workshop, from the start of the brand, to control the entire process, from creation to production. Knowing our entire chain also means better managing our costs so that the work of artisans is paid without multiple intermediaries.
Through Mii, we want to put ancestral know-how back in its place and in the spotlight, which has been abused by nearly 2 centuries of colonization and then by destructive fast fashion on all levels.
We also wish to participate, at our level, in safeguarding know-how which will disappear in a few decades if nothing is done. The last generation of craftsmen is still there but the next generation will not be ensured if their skills are not valued, organized and modernized. This is what we strive to do, sometimes making mistakes but with a single credo: move forward, build, every day try to do better than the last and put people at the heart of our production.
It all starts from the thread!
We create and design all our fabrics each season. We start from the wire! We work with natural materials such as khadi cotton, linen, wool, silk, cashmere and mohair... We develop and produce mii products locally in the region where Bapan grew up, Bengal and where to know them -making textiles are particularly rich. Our products are almost exclusively handmade, our know-how includes hand loom weaving, Aari or needle embroidery, screen printing and block printing, needle knitting and crochet. . We work closely with our craftsmen.
Today, through mii, there are hundreds of artisans who can make a living from their know-how all year round.
