We founded MERAKI in 2019, with the belief that change happens as a result of individual action. When we come together to make small changes in our own individual lives, it can lead to enormous impact.
At MERAKI, our intent is to create Modern, Simple & Soulful pieces in Earth friendly fabrics that defy trends and seasons. We are a certified responsible brand that is progressively evolving towards a more sustainable future.
We are committed to using sustainable fabric in all of our designs. 95% of all the fabrics used in a MERAKI garment are from made of natural fibre making us one of the very few brands that can make that claim. We primarily use Pure Linen and its blend with other natural fibers, Tencel (made from sustainably harvested wood pulp that's processed in a closed looped system that recycles solvents), and Pure Cotton.
We analyze the impact of each fabric throughout its lifecycle, and seek out fabric with the highest quality and best performance. We are dedicated to being responsible in every aspect of our business, because we believe that the little things can make a big difference.
- Our packaging materials are made from 100% recycled polyester of Global recycled standard.
- Our Tags are made from recycled cotton waste materials.
- We make our Labels from recycled polyester.
- Our buttons are made from natural materials like waste wood, coconut shell and Mother of Pearl.
- We pack our garments in an unbleached muslin cloth bag that could be used as toiletry kit, shoe bag or just caring for your clothes.
We understand that every aspect of our supply chain has an impact on People + the planet, and we strive to be more responsible and sustainable with each new collection.
We believe in Slow Fashion, Slow fashion is about choice, consuming and living better. Our products are crafted with a lot of attention to quality and are designed to last longer. We bring small collections and only manufacture in small batches. Our styles are timeless and seasonless, making them right choice. Our approach is to make slow fashion really accessible and making consumers more aware of the impacts of products on communities and eco-systems. MERAKI encapsulates a conscious approach to consuming while highlighting the importance of self-expression and individuality. We urge you to Buy purposefully. Before making a purchase, take a moment to imagine yourself wearing the item again and again. Ask yourself these questions:
- Is it really your style (not just the trend of the moment)?
- Does it flatter your body shape?
- Will it work with other staples and favorite pieces in your closet?
- What does it say about who you are and what you stand for?
- Will you wear it at least 30 times?
By simply taking a moment to thoughtfully consider all purchases, you not only end up with clothes that truly reflect your taste and values and will last for a long time.
Our design philosophy is to create modern, simple, and soulful pieces in earth-friendly fabrics that defy trends and seasons. Our styles have a timeless aesthetic with a comfortable fit and their versatility helps transcend wearing occasions.
Throwaway fashion- Fast fashion is the reason for tons of clothes reaching landfills. Intense social media pressure has contributed to a society addicted to a constant need for stimulation- new designs, new materials, new fits, etc. MERAKI garments live up to a design philosophy of helping you make responsible choices, offering designs that are simple yet modern and versatile -which can be worn for multiple occasions thus reducing the need to buy new clothes for every occasion.
We believe that when you’re deciding what fashion items truly speak to your personality, style, and persona that you’re presenting to the world, the most beautiful items you wear are those you wear confidently because they make you make you feel your best. We design items that are classic and timeless, so that it reflects who you are and not who everyone else is being at the moment. Think timeless, its such a freedom not having to follow trends and styles simply for the fear of missing out. That pure anxiety of having to ‘keep up’ will be gone away entirely!
Made To Last
We construct all our products with lot of love and great quality, keeping in mind that it should go with almost everything you wear, stay in style for years, and make you feel good every time you wear it.
We are committed to working with responsible factories who prohibit child labor & forced labor. We visit our factories personally, and work closely with them to manufacture our collections. We've chosen the factories based on their expertise.
With the understanding that every time you buy a product or support a brand, you’re casting a vote with your wallet. These choices determine the spread and success of each brand’s responsibility & sustainability standards.
We @ MERAKI are on a mission to create products that truly make a difference. We are learning to do things in a better way because we feel its our responsibility towards each one of you and this planet we live in. We are proud to be at the forefront of the movement towards sustainable and conscious living that is gaining rapid momentum in the clothing industry.
