MANIMAMI was born out of a love for fashion and the world around us. It’s no secret that the fashion industry is one of the main contributors to the decline of the environment, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t change that. It is our mission to use recycled materials to create new, one-of-a-kind items. Our motto is:
“Tattered and torn, reworked and reborn”
We focus on using all kinds of materials, from shower curtains to clothing to table cloths, sourced from second-hand shops, friends, and the community. We have always been fans of buying second-hand because there is so much clothing out there that people don’t want but the fabric is still in good condition and worth reusing. The problem is that a lot of the clothes are outdated, have smalls holes, or are just unflattering silhouettes. That is where MANIMAMI steps in! Reworking already made garments into ones that are trendy, stylish, and unique helps to reduce the production of new materials being made in factories, which pollute the environment, offer unfair working wages, and use millions of tons of water per year.
Our pieces are produced in a small studio in Madrid, Spain. We create a variety of sizes and styles, clothing and accessories, so that everyone can find something they like. MANIMAMI is a small business but we would love to grow and partner with other businesses who share our values. If you have any questions or wish to work together, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow us on Instagram @manimami_ttrr
To be clear, when I say “we,” I am referring to me, the designer, and my dog, Cookie, who always gives the recycled materials a sniff of approval! :)
Sustainably sourced from second-hand materials!
