Mia's designs are inspired by her love for texture, nature, natural materials and ancient crafting techniques. She likes to combine all of these to create modern and functional design. Mia Mélange's items can be purchased nationally in local designer shops, in selected boutiques overseas and also on their online shop. Mia Mélange is 100% handmade in South Africa.
Mélange means mixture/blend in French. It's also a type of yarn that is commonly used in the textile and fashion industries. The yarn is typically made up of different kinds of fibers, or different colored fibers, which are blended together in a certain fixed ratio. When applied correctly, mélange yarn can be knitted or woven into a rich multicolored / textured fabric, which can be used for various purposes. The idea behind the name 'Mia Mélange' arose out of a desire to create a collection of eclectic products, with a strong emphasis on the bountiful world of textiles.
