AKIRA MING is a sustainable fashion label for women that has ethics, compassion and the environment at its heart, besides creative imagination of course!
Style and elegance have often had an inherent cost for either the environment or for humans.
AKIRA MING pushes against this notion and endeavours to produce beautiful styles using the most ethical and sustainable practices.
Our entire design process – from the search for most sustainable fabrics to the printing and dyeing to finally crafting beautiful elegant shapes- tells a unique
story each time. We value our artisan heritage of India and endeavour to enrich all our pieces with hand crafted techniques of embroidery and use the most natural hand woven and hand spun textiles that have a really low carbon impact on the environment.
AKIRA MING uses 100% natural and hand-woven fabrics for all its designs. Instead of regular silk, we use a fabric called Ahimsa Silk; unlike commercial silk, Ahimsa silk is produced in a way that avoids harming or killing of silkworms. We are certain of its authenticity since we source it directly from its
original makers who also hold a patent for Ahimsa silk. The silk is dyed using sustainably harvested gum arabica crystals using water based binders.
We also support those who share our enthusiasm for conserving and protecting the environment.
In collaboration with Scrap App India, AKIRA MING plants 5 trees for each garment it sells. We also donate 5% of our annual sales to Waste Warriors – an NGO leading efforts in waste management in India.
AKIRA MING has created the perfect merger of style and consciousness, of fashion and responsibility. Our customers appreciate a flair for style and a sense of compassion in equal measure. We strive to make beautiful not just
ourselves but the world around us too.
