Sustainability and Materials

- How does MildaMade ensure sustainability in its products?

At MildaMade, sustainability and ethical practices are prioritized in every step of the process. Here are some key aspects of this commitment:

- What percentage of upcycled materials does MildaMade use?MildaMade strives to use upcycled materials in every product, with approximately 80-95% of the materials being sourced from vintage and repurposed items. This helps reduce waste and gives new life to otherwise discarded fabrics. Occasionally, Milda will use new, purchased materials if she is unable to find anything in her stock. This may include anything, from zippers to rhinestones but is always done thoughtfully and purchased from small businesses and fair-trade merchants whenever possible.

- Is everything really handmade?

Yes, all of MildaMade's products are truly handmade but the artist. Milda uses a blend of modern machines, including sewing machines, serger machines, Cricut cutting machines, and computers with software for creating custom illustrations and graphics. These tools are combined with age-old techniques like embroidery, applique, beading, and more. This approach ensures each piece is crafted with care and attention to detail, reflecting Milda's commitment to artisanal craftsmanship. In the future, Milda hopes to collaborate with fellow artisans and craftspersons to create a wider variety of products.
- Where does MildaMade obtain its materials?
Milda sources materials from a variety of places, including thrift stores, vintage shops, and donations. Milda is always on the lookout for unique fabrics and items that can be transformed into something special. Are you interested in donating something special? Milda would love to take a look! Please take pictures of what you have, and send us a note at milda@mildabublys.com or click here.
- Does MildaMade clean salvaged materials before use?
Absolutely! Milda thoroughly cleans and sanitizes all salvaged materials before incorporating them into the products. This ensures that every piece is not only beautiful but also safe and ready to wear.
- What other sustainable practices does MildaMade follow?
In addition to using upcycled materials, MildaMade minimizes waste in the production process by repurposing fabric scraps. These scraps are used in stuffing, sewn together to create new fabric, and made into new products like the Keychain Wallet Purse found here. Milda's commitment to sustainability is reflected in every aspect of the business.
