You + Your Fave Knit = Forever

You + Your Fave Knit = Forever

Making our clothes last longer is the first step to an ethical and sustainable wardrobe. Absence makes the heart grow fonder…AND can make your favourite knit last longer. Sometimes, the things we love hurt us the most, and over-wear and under-care can kill your much-loved knit well before it’s expiry date.

The Mia Diary ~ At Home With our Co-Founder & Designer Amy

Issue #1 AT HOME WITH OUR TEAM 

We hope that you are staying safe in these fairly significant times of flux. We are trying our best to stay positive in the Mia Fratino camp.  In the spirit of enhancing human connection, in a period where this is lacking (and we are all feeling it), we felt it might be nice to share a little from behind our home walls (literally!)

Why Our Ethos on Ethical Manufacturing Is More Important Than Ever Before

Why Our Ethos on Ethical Manufacturing Is More Important Than Ever Before

When we launched Mia Fratino in 2015, we had a very clear ethos: to maintain a truly ethical approach to fashion production.

Now in our fourth year of manufacturing from our Aussie-owned factory in Sri Lanka, our focus is more important than ever.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2019

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2019

Ideally, we would celebrate and thank our mothers every day for all that they do – raising, supporting, guiding and nuturing us. However, life is often busy, hectic and demanding, and the reality is that we don’t always take the time to tell mum how important she truly is.

Supporting the Blanket Ban on 'Supermarket' Cashmere...

Supporting the Blanket Ban on 'Supermarket' Cashmere...

It’s always encouraging to see giant global fashion players take a stand on ethical fashion. However, ASOS’s recent decision to blanket ban (effective January 2019) on all remaining animal-derived fibres within their online offering - including cashmere, silk and mohair, has raised the question: Is ethical fashion really so black-and-white?
