MIA FRATINO is an Australian based company, driven by director Tim Fitzpatrick and designer Amy Jones. With more than 30 years of premium knitwear experience for some of fashion's iconic brands, MIA FRATINO was born to be more than just a knitwear label, it was created to stand proud and make a difference.
Our Slow Fashion Philosophy guides us to re-look at the way the fashion industry operates and ask how we can improve processes in every step of manufacturing and delivery. We will strive to constantly challenge the industry, providing the best service possible with a fully transparent ethical supply chain. MIA FRATINO's production is manufactured 100% within our independently owned factory, allowing complete vigilance and control.
-We aim to bring the consumer as close as we can to the manufacturing and design process. With our unique Pre-Order Studio, we offer customers a chance to be part of the production process from the outset. Above all of this, we offer a fashion business that helps to fight against women's poverty with a donation from every purchase contributing to the Mia Fratino Foundation.
Mia Fratino: Esperanto for ‘My Sister’
When our design workshop began, the aim was to create timeless knitwear for independent women who loved quality and their own sense of style. And more importantly, we aimed to create bond between our customers and the lives of women living in difficult circumstances through the Mia Fratino Foundation.
Mia Fratino translates as ‘My Sister’ in Esperanto and everything we do is about helping our sister wherever she may be. It is a wonderful fusion of style and charity, where we consider all aspects of our business and how it can bring positive affects to others and the environment.
We look for beauty throughout every step of the garment creation process so as to build a final product of exceptional luxury. Our collection uses the finest natural fibres, which brings further elegance to our timeless designs. MIA FRATINO is designed for real women of today. You deserve to take time to savour life’s pleasures and can feel good about your purchase knowing a contribution is being made to the Mia Fratino Foundation.
