Oct 17, 2019

New children’s wear brand Miko Lolo has launched a number of sustainable fashion initiatives to eliminate textile waste and promote organic children’s wear.

Miko Lolo, founded and designed by Akansha Bhatia, has launched its maiden collection of sustainable children’s wear. The collection uses organic cotton and is designed to be hypo-allergenic. It also eschews plastic or metal fastenings and uses waste wood and coconut shells instead.

“All our cotton material is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard and so, we can proudly claim our authenticity,” Bhatia told The Better India. “I have a team of three tailors and one person for quality check working in Mumbai. Miko Lolo does not believe in fast fashion and we hand stitch shirts, skirts, pants and dresses only in limited quantities.”

The brand also has a zero-textile-waste policy. Scraps from dresses and tops are made into scrunchies, hair bands, and bibs. Customers can also give back the garments they have purchased when they no longer need them. The brand will clean the clothing, rework it, and donate it so it can be used again. 

Miko Lolo has also used fabric scraps to make its clothing tags. The scraps carry seeds to plant to encourage biodiversity.

Akansha Bhatia recently launched Miko Lolo in Mumbai after graduating from the National Institute of Fashion Technology in the city. The brand retails from its dedicated e-commerce store.
