Our Commitmynt

 At MYNTWAVE, we believe in the power of sustainable self-expression. Our mission is to inspire creativity and reimagine our collective relationship with fashion by transforming post-consumer textiles into unique, high-quality garments while minimizing environmental impact and promoting ethical practices. We are committed to reducing waste, supporting fair labor, and creating timeless pieces that last.

 

Core Values:

 

Reducing Waste: We focus on minimizing waste through upcycling and responsible production practices.

Ethical Practices: We ensure fair labor practices and a mindful supply chain by partnering with regional suppliers who provide safe and ethical working conditions.

Quality and Longevity: Our garments are designed to be high-quality and long-lasting, reducing the need for frequent replacements and promoting sustainable consumption. Through our exclusive MYNTWAVE CARE program, we further extend the life of your favorite garments with custom repair, alteration, and exchange services, ensuring that each piece can be cherished for years to come.

 

Sustainable Materials

 

We pride ourselves on using sustainable materials that make a difference. Our upcycled garments are crafted from pre- and post-consumer textiles, such as vintage, secondhand, and deadstock fabric, breathing new life into discarded fabrics. We source our materials ethically, working with independent vendors and regional suppliers who share our commitment to environmental and social responsibility. Our collections are focused around natural fibers and fiber blends, ensuring that each piece not only feels good but does good.

 

Upcycled Garments: Our process involves deconstructing pre- and post-consumer textiles to reconstruct them into new, unique pieces. This method reduces textile waste and conserves resources.

Ethically Sourced Fabrics: We partner with suppliers who adhere to strict ethical standards, ensuring that all materials are produced under fair labor conditions.

Natural Fibers and Blends: We meticulously source secondhand, vintage, deadstock, and organic materials made from natural fibers and fiber blends. This approach avoids the use of virgin synthetic materials like polyester and ensures the highest quality and sustainability.

Post-Consumer Synthetics: To further our commitment to sustainability, we incorporate post-consumer nylons and materials from vintage sportswear such as windbreakers, varsity jackets, jerseys, and tracksuits. These materials are chosen for their durability and performance, aligning with our goal of creating versatile and long-lasting garments. By repurposing these fabrics, we keep them out of landfills and honor their historical and aesthetic value.

 

Craftsmanship and Design

 

Every MYNTWAVE piece is a testament to our dedication to craftsmanship and innovation. Our small batch production approach ensures that we minimize waste and maintain the exclusivity of our designs. Each garment is handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail, reflecting our commitment to quality and sustainability. By integrating sustainable practices into our design process, we create unique, timeless pieces that stand the test of time.

 

Small Batch Production: By producing in small batches, we reduce waste and overproduction. This approach allows us to maintain the exclusivity and quality of our garments.

Handcrafted Quality: Our artisans meticulously craft each piece, ensuring that every garment meets our high standards of quality and durability.

Innovation in Design: Sustainability is at the core of our design process. We continuously seek innovative ways to reduce our environmental impact, from using eco-friendly materials to implementing zero-waste design techniques.

Versatile Designs: Our garments are designed with versatility in mind, allowing customers to style them in multiple ways. This adaptability extends the lifecycle of each piece, encouraging sustainable fashion practices.

Technology and the Future: We are leveraging new technologies like NFC and NFT embedded garments and membership cards to enhance provenance, traceability, and customer experience. These technologies also enable our customers to access exclusive content, events, and services, such as verified custom repair, alteration, and exchange services via MYNTWAVE CARE.
