Wolf & Mishka is a Melbourne-based label passionate about creating locally made, unique pieces to wear and for the home. Originally inspired by a family heirloom – a book of Russian nursery rhymes that was lovingly created by my great-grandmother almost 100 years ago – all Wolf & Mishka pieces are made with love, are unique and designed to be treasured for years to come.
Our approach when designing and producing each collection is slow, with small local production runs while staying waste conscious. We think very seriously about the amount of fabric we order, print and how many styles are made. Meaning we don’t over produce, instead our focus is on quality, not quantity.
We hope you find your must-have item; when you do, you’ll know you’re one of a small group of people in the world who has it.
Made in Melbourne.
Did you know fast fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world?
Our approach when designing and producing each collection is slow, with small production runs while staying waste conscious. We think very seriously about the amount of fabric we order, print and how many styles are made. In some cases, this could be only 10 in total! Meaning we don’t over produce, instead our focus is on quality, not quantity.
Our focus when producing all our garments is not to waste anything! We will always try to use up a complete roll of fabric for production, even if the fabric is not from the current season. Our printed fabric scraps are sent to a very talented lady, Julie from @kindred_connected who then uses them to create her gorgeous wall loom hangings. All other scraps are saved for later ranges, and smaller pieces are also collected and given to kindergartens and craft/sewing workshops.
This year we will be bringing you more about our brand, who makes our garments, where our fabrics are bought and printed, and where our fabric scraps go for continued craft and educational use. Including what sustainable materials we’re switching to, procedures we endeavour to adopt for our business in order to reduce our carbon footprint. It’s important we share this with our customers, and try to encourage others to support the make small, shop small community.
