Premium Eco Fabrics
Our signature fabric is made from 100% GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) Certified Organic Cotton. It's custom knit for us here in L.A. by a family owned fabric mill. We also use premium eco-friendly fabrics made from bamboo, modal, and linen. All of our garments are dyed locally using non-toxic AZO-free dyes in colors that are created by Mien's designer.
Each style is produced in small batches locally in Los Angeles. We only work with family-owned factories that pay fair wages and provide their workers with a clean, safe working environment and regular breaks.
We ship every order using only materials that are compostable, recyclable, or recycled. Mien's garments are never individually wrapped in plastic during production or in shipment.
Easy, comfortable, effortless. Every piece arrives at your doorstep pre-shrunk. Simple machine wash and dry is all you do to take care of your Mien pieces. Nothing in the line needs to be dry-cleaned, which is better for you and the planet. Our garments also travel wonderfully.
Mien is a Los Angeles based clothing brand dedicated to making well-designed clothes sustainably, ethically, and locally. We are proudly woman-founded and woman-owned. We make clothes for modern, busy, multi-faceted women in all chapters of life. The models you see on our website are our own friends, our family members, and our customers. That’s because Mien's designer, Lisa Hsieh, designs clothes for women like you and I who try to do everything and take care of everyone we love everyday - we want to make clothes for them, for you - to make everyday dressing easy, without sacrificing the health of our planet while doing so but definitely celebrate our identity and creativity wherever we are now and where we are going in our lives. We have customers from ages seventeen to seventy, and offer a range of sizes from XS to 3XL.
Look good, feel good and do good. Thoughtful design, timeless style, quality and ethical craftsmanship, it starts with our fabric. Our signature fabric, knitted from GOTS-certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) organic cotton, not only feels good but it is better for the environment. It's also custom knitted for us here in Los Angeles by a family owned fabric mill. The cutting, sewing, and dyeing of every piece you see in the collection is also done here in L.A. by factories that provide a fair wage with a safe and clean working place for workers so that is also good for our local economy.
We know the people who make our garments on a first name basis, we work hand-in-hand, and we are growing our businesses together, supporting each other while doing something we are passionate about. Team Mien is also an all-women team. More than just co-workers, we are great friends, a family, and we enjoy each other's company. We are a company with happy people behind it, a business built upon kindness, respect, and friendship.
