Mia Sorella Textiles is an initiative of sisters, Justine and Breanna Emonson, in an attempt to reduce mass consumption, harsh chemicals and waste in the textile industry.
We believe that change must be made and we aim to provide the Australian textile industry with organic botanical based dyed natural fabrics and textiles as a base for these changes.
We want to use our platform to change, serve and educate consumers to respect and be responsible when it comes to contributing to the impact that the textile industry can have on our environment.
All our fabrics are either 100% cotton or pure linen and have been carefully hand dyed, by us, using only botanical based dyes, extracts and minerals. Unlike industrial or commercial dyes, our botanical dyes are non- toxic, not harsh on the environment and will not irritate your skin.
The dying process is slow, it takes roughly 4 days from start to finish to produce beautifully imperfect living colours, extracted straight from mother nature. Each step is carefully curated so that we can withdraw the perfect colour onto our textiles. Every piece tells its own beautiful story.
All fabrics can be purchased plain or block printed.
We carefully hand calve our blocks into intricate designs that compliment our botanically dyed fabrics.
The ink we use to block print our fabrics do not contain PVC or phthalates. The ink does not contain any ozone- depleting chemicals such as CFC’s and HCFC’s, aromatic hydrocarbons or any volatile solvents. They do not contain led, heavy metals or any toxic chemicals. Our inks do not contain white spirits like other commercial water-based inks on the market. Our ink passes the Oekotex Class 1 standard and is safe to use on underwear and swimwear. It is certified risk free for health, even for children under 3. 100% vegan- it is not tested on animals nor does it contain any animal or animal bi- products.
All our products are dyed and printed right here in our little corner of Australia, South West Victoria.
The living colours of natural dyes do require a little bit more love then commercial pieces to maintain.
Natural dyes are PH sensitive and are sensitive to extreme, prolonged sun exposure.
