Sustainability and Miik: more than just fabric

For us, sustainability goes beyond simply using greener fabrics and production processes. It even goes beyond producing locally in order to minimize our carbon footprint. What happens to the garment after it’s produced is just as important. By custom milling durable luxury fabrics and creating timeless yet contemporary pieces, Miik is challenging the fast-fashion model of temporary, disposable clothing. Our goal is to lengthen the time between purchasing the clothing you love, and it’s eventual disposal. It’s that simple.

And when you discover how luxuriously soft our fabric feels against your skin and how versatile our pieces are, you truly will enjoy your Miik pieces for years to come.

Our commitment to endangered forest free fabrics
Miik values the protection of ancient and endangered forests, including Canada’s coastal temperate rainforests and Boreal Forest, as well as the tropical forests of Indonesia and the Amazon. We are committed to not using illegally logged fibres, fibres from endangered species habitat or ancient and endangered forests, or other controversial sources in our fabrics. Miik requests that our suppliers respect the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and acknowledge the right of Indigenous People and rural communities to give or withhold their Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) before new logging rights are allocated or plantations are developed. Miik requests that all fabric sourced from forests are from responsibly managed forests certified to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification and we specifically support FSC certified plantations.

This commitment is aligned with, and builds on, the work of not-for-profit organization Canopy, who collaborates with brands and retailers to ensure that their supply chains are free of ancient and endangered forests by 2017, as part of the CanopyStyle Initiative. This initiative encourages visionary solutions that protect our remaining ancient and endangered forests, like the Great Bear Rainforest Agreements and also incentivizes the development of cellulosic fabrics from alternative fiber sources, like recycled fabrics and agricultural residues.
