Meraki & The Geek is not just about the clothes we make but it is mostly about the positive change we want to bring to society. As a slow fashion clothing brand, we have the long term ambition to be as sustainable as possible by prioritizing environmental friendly materials and products. We are committed to leave a positive footprint to our world, producing small collections and taking care of each process of production from choosing the fabrics to manufacturing and packaging, to servicing our customers.
We are proud to share our story with you and build this long journey together!
Our dresses are made 100% of Rayon Chiffon. This smooth fiber is made from natural sources such as wood and agricultural products that are regenerated as natural cellulose raw fiber, with a mesh like weave that gives a transparent and light appearance. Rayon is more absorbent than cotton and linen, making it the most absorbent plant-based fabric. Unlike synthetic fabrics, rayon is breathable and therefore cooler and more comfortable to wear on hot days.
Although our designs are made with best quality rayon avoiding shrinking and fading over time, we recommend you to take care of your dresses by washing in cold water or by hand.
As we continue the path of developing our young brand, we have the goal to seek even more sustainable materials such as Tencell, Econyl and Lenzing Viscose.
Every collection is designed to provide a feeling of freedom and exclusiveness for each woman to feel special and unique. Our small collections not only help us to be more sustainable by limiting clothing waste but also help us to create and design each piece of collections with love.
All fabric waste is reused to create small accessories such as scrunchies and head bands that you could receive when purchasing one of our designs.
We hope you will enjoy our dresses as much as we enjoyed creating them.
