Transparency - Atelier Mizuni

At Mizuni, we believe that sustainability and transparency go hand in hand. We are committed to providing you with clear visibility into our supply chain and pricing structure, enabling you to make informed decisions and understand the value of our garments. We embrace the industry-wide call for greater transparency and have taken steps to enhance transparency across our brand. We believe that transparency should be the new norm, and we encourage other brands to join us in this pursuit.

Why do slow fashion brands have higher prices?

Why are slow fashion brands often pricier despite lower markups? Let's consider an example: Picture a fast fashion brand selling a mass-produced dress for an unusually low price, such as 25€ (including tax). However, the production cost of that dress is disproportionately lower, possibly just a fraction of the final retail price.

This discrepancy raises concerns about fair compensation for the individuals involved. At Atelier Mizuni, we prioritize ethical practices and transparency. Each of our handmade linen kimonos requires meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail.

We strive to bring transparency to the fashion industry, even though we acknowledge the ongoing challenges. By openly communicating and continuously improving, we're dedicated to creating a more accountable and fair fashion landscape.
