Working From Home: Tips on How NOT to Stay in Bed All Day.

While we’ve all dreamed of waving goodbye to our office and swapping our desks for our beds from time to time, we’re slowly finding out that working from home isn’t all it’s cracked up to be – especially if we’ve never done it before.

Why Natural Fibers Are Better

Why Natural Fibers Are Better

Since humans started wearing clothes we have been wearing natural fibres.  Now, as humanity has progressed we have gone from Mammoth skins to lycra as our second skin.  Synthetic fibres have trumped the humble cottons, wools and silks we originally donned.  We stand strong against the use of synthetics at Mia Fratino, only offering garments made in our 100% natural fibres.

Building an Ethical Closet

Building an Ethical Closet

‘I would love to buy from ethical brands, but I can’t afford it!’ It’s no lie that cashmere can be expensive, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t help reduce the negative social and environmental effects of the fashion industry.

Why Is Cashmere so Expensive?

Why Is Cashmere so Expensive?

Think of the word cashmere, and thoughts of luxurious, high-class, soft, delicate and expensive products come to mind. But to understand what makes cashmere so valuable – and, as a result, expensive – it’s necessary to delve into the background of where it comes from, how it is made, and why it differs from other materials.

The Good Cashmere Standard

The Good Cashmere Standard

We are devoted to the responsible production of our sustainable cashmere. One of the key principles of the GCS is that goat farming should have no negative impact on the environment, especially on the land and biodiversity.

Slowing Down The Sale Mentality

Slowing Down The Sale Mentality

At MIA FRATINO, we don't advocate flash sales and promotions. This sale mentality 'devalues' garments and leads to over-consumerism. We are dedicated to environmental awareness and advocate mindful purchasing of high-quality, ethically made and long-lasting garments.

Sustainability Begins at the Source.

Sustainability Begins at the Source.

The fashion industry can be hugely detrimental to our environment.

It's a well known fact that many of the plastics we use in our day-to-day lives end up in the ocean. However, you may not be aware that one major source of this pollution is in fact our clothes.
