Like with any successful business endeavour, Meraki Beach was born from a point of passion. Before we had progressed to designing and creating our own collections, we started off in April of 2018 as a small company who simply loved fashion, spending our time and effort into marketing and selling other designer’s work online. We found that while we loved the opportunity to reach people from all over the world and introduce them to unique boho brands, there was still so much more we wanted to achieve. So, we began to think of what else we could do that would be true to us, that could be successful but also to help others in the process. It had always been a dream of ours to design our own clothes, but the commitment to selling the work of other designers had made it difficult to find the time to dive deep into our own ambitions. However, once we realised that this was the route we wanted to take, a chance meeting with a colleague helped transform our dream into reality.
Meraki Beach is proud to be a female-founded company that supports Artisans and their communities every day through our work, creating and selling beautiful and fiercely ethical clothing. While we have a passion for providing high-quality clothing to people across the world who want to look and feel beautiful, we also believe that the Fashion Industry can be a real source of power and security for women too, and therefore have committed ourselves to making a real difference. Our brand is therefore dedicated to empowering women and families in rural regions, supporting ethical and fair trade work production in small quantities. We are on a mission for Slow Fashion and fair trade.
While we are only a very small company and can therefore not expect to change and have a huge impact on worldwide issues, if we can help even a handful of families earn their own money and gain economic security, then we are going to commit ourselves to that whole-heartedly.
All of our Collections are a direct tribute to all of the wonderful communities who have made them. These amazing people and their passion for producing beautiful, handcrafted pieces, are the very heart & soul of this brand. At Meraki Beach, we absolutely love discovering gorgeous, handmade items from all the corners of the World and bringing them to you.
From the first step of the design process to the manufacturing of our products, we want to protect the environment and choose raw materials with minimal strain on our planet. We are working hard to eliminate the harm that comes with the production of "fast fashion". We are fully focused on transforming the fashion world into an environmentally friendly process. We are committed to producing fashion combined with the nature of our designs and creating sustainability awareness. For our designs we take our inspiration from nature, we focus on environmentally friendly components that will ensure the continuity of the Ecosystem. We use pure materials produced using sustainable methods.
The sustainability of our products are as vital to us as their colour and style. The right materials and quality craftsmanship increase the sustainability of our designs. It is very important for us that our customers can wear our collections for many years, and for this purpose, we use materials that will meet these conditions in our production processes. We take care to use materials produced in a nature-sensitive manner in all of our products. We select the ingredients of our raw materials from sustainable fibres and only use natural and organic materials.
Each one of our Silk garments is entirely unique through our use of the ancient Japanese method of Shibori, which is a form of dying that creates a beautiful & eye-catching effect. This method of hand dying fabrics takes years & years to master and has been passed down through many generations.
This method is done through a folding of each garment in a certain method before being bound by string. The shape of the string upon the fabric will prevent the dye from penetrating it, therefore allowing for the dye to consume the parts of the fabric that have not been bound. The larger the shape that is folded and the more string that is used to bind it, the greater the area of un-dyed fabric, and therefore the more intricate the pattern that the garment is left with. Upon removing the fabric from the dyes and washing them with cold water, the garments then show off their individual patterns and colours. It’s a wonderful and ethical way of dying fabric that provides unique results for each piece – meaning that whatever you buy will truly be one of a kind.
