Milo + Nicki is a tiny startup with a big heart. Not only do they produce gorgeous sustainable apparel, but they are on a mission to build up and support women around the world.
About Milo + Nicki
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Milo and Nicki are a dog and girl duo on a mission. After hitting rock bottom with health issues and intense anxiety, Nicki knew she needed to make a change. She decided to re-align her focus to the most important things in life; family, love and the connections between humans, culture and the earth.
Nicki’s experience, combined with her passion for women’s empowerment, sustainable practices and health of mind, body, spirit and earth, all came together to create Milo + Nicki.
The brand went from idea to reality with the help of sustainable fashion incubator Factory 45. With Shannon Whitehead’s guidance and a successful campaign on Kickstarter, Nicki has become an entrepreneur, business owner and incredible part of the sustainable fashion movement.
Now, they have launched two gorgeous collections and more importantly, is regularly involved in supporting social movements and charities. From donating to organizations that support women like the 2018 #IStandForGirls campaign, to supporting local charities by donating 20% of the proceeds from the “be you tee”.
M+N: The Bandhani Collection
This collection is what vacation dreams are made of. The Bandhani Collection is made of 10 styles that can be mixed and matched to create 25 different outfits and could effortlessly take on your month-long trip around the world.
Made from banana waste, the fabric is soft, flowing and totally luxurious. Tiny dots on a few of the styles are hand tied and dyed with eco friendly dyes to achieve beautiful indigo and orange hues. Beyond the eco-friendly nature of the fabrics, the capsule is also produced under humane and cruelty free working conditions in the USA, from being designed in Austin, Texas to production in NYC.
