At Pana Mina, we are committed to sustainable, ethical, and inclusive practices. We, as Co-Founders, are proudly involved in every step of the creation and manufacturing process. As our slow fashion brand grows and expands its presence, we promise to uphold the following:
100% Eco-friendly Materials
When initially selecting fabrics, we narrow it down to a handful of low-impact, plant-based materials. We primarily use Global Organic Textile Standard certified organic cotton, modal, and deadstock (leftover fabric from local mills and production houses).
Our new fabrics are sourced from a local, toxic chemical-free fabric mill owned by our friend, Lakshay. Our deadstock fabrics are sourced from a supplier in Jaipur's "Sikar House" neighborhood. We select each fabric in-person.
Our fabrics are dyed in small batches (20 meters at a time) from Jaipur's B.M. Dyers, an artisan shop, to reduce waste. The dyes are low impact and contain no toxic chemicals. Leftover water-based dye is disposed of in the appropriate sewer or septic drains.
In addition, all materials are vegan. No fur, leather, down, horn, angora, animal skin, wool, silk, or animal hair.
We spend time testing our fabrics to ensure quality and performance. Pana Mina never sacrifices sustainability for style or function.
Ethical Manufacturing & Enforced Living Wage
Our Jaipur-based production house pays their talented tailors 2-3 times the fair and living wage, ensuring that they can support their families and live comfortably. We (the founders) live in Jaipur, and can therefore personally visit our production house several times per week to drop off our fabrics, observe production, and check in with the tailors.
When sourcing new fabric, we buy directly from a traditional, local fabric mill. We can confirm a living wage throughout our supply chain, down to the fabric production/treatment level.
Pana Mina ensures that no child labor or forced labor occurs. Our production house is a safe and clean facility. Our tailors are given flexible schedules, and are free to request days off from their manager, Irfan. All workers have the right to join a union.
Aarti, a full-time seamstress, adds wooden buttons to our Cotton Flax Dress.
Each garment is shipped in a biodegradable bag to keep products safe and dry. We don't add much in the way of packaging to reduce waste. :)
Timeless, Functional, Multi-season Styles
We create elegant pieces that are made to last, as well as withstand trends and seasons. Our dresses are intended to be versatile and worn longer than a fast fashion buy, encouraging a smaller, but highly functional wardrobe. We hope you wear and love your Pana Mina piece for years to come.
100% Inclusive Sizing
Pana Mina is available for all bodies and sizes. If your measurements do not fall under our Size Chart, we will make a custom sized dress for you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred dress, your bust / waist / hip measurements, and height.
