Mieko Mintz’s remarkable talent is evident not only through her genius as a designer, but in her experience as an artist and traveller.
Each piece she creates is a catalogue of global inspiration – the heritage of embroidery in India, the kimono traditions of Japan and the sumptuous textiles of the Silk Road.
We are lucky, and grateful to present her innovative approach to style – something that has had a profound impact on the world of fashion as it revives the ancient art of Kantha for the contemporary wardrobe.
Traditional Kantha embroidery, a form of repetitive stitching, has been practiced by rural Bengali communities for a millennia.
This ancient art form is used to repurpose timeworn and inherited clothing.
Within her pieces Mieko explores the romance of this reincarnation.
Alongside her collective of talented artisans in West Bengal, she uses this technique to transform vintage and antique sari fabrics into modern, sophisticated coats and jackets.
By combining Japanese kimono traditions, European haute couture silhouettes and the textures of Kantha embroidery, Mieko Mintz has harnessed a style completely unique to her.
Whether looking for an elegant finishing layer or an elevated piece for the everyday wardrobe, her collections are a true testament to her unparalleled creativity and skill.
