All Mina pieces are designed, pattern made and created in Auckland, New Zealand. Mina has a strong ethos around supporting the local industry in New Zealand as well as our environment. We strongly believe in using pure fabrics and ridding polyesters and other synthetic fibres from both our bodies and our planet.
We strive to source fabrics that will give back to the earth as they biodegrade after the life of the garment. We believe in fabrics that not only age beautifully with time but are built to last. Some winter fabrics such as wool require 5 -10% of nylon or spandex for durability and practicality of the fabric. We try to use as low percentages as possible.
We ensure the craftsmanship of the garment is made with attention and deliberate finishings. We design each piece and silhouette not to last a season but to last a life time. We source fabrics that are built to last and endure the seasons. It is then up to you to make sure the care and attention that has been given to make the garment is then given the same attention to the care of the garment during its life.
