Why we think this is the brand to be proud of
MANUFACTURES. This brand is based in New Zealand and 95 % of their of their productions are made in this country. Last 5 % are made in Italy. Locally working companies in the fashion industry is such a rare thing. For Meggie Marilyn it means much higher cost to produce their apparels. BUT we think it is really important. They are an example to follow.
Company say that they have very close relationships with their manufactures and people that are working for them. As a customer on a website you can find information about every factory. What kind of clothes they make in MAGGIE MARILYN collection and their unique story. One funny thing that we found is that they have calculated how far every manufacture is from their main office

69 % of MAGGIE MARILYN collections are made from organic, recycled, ethical, repurposed fabrics. They have a goal to reach 100 % sustainable fabrics usage by 2020. So, we should say that they still have issues with sustainable fabrics, BUT they are transparent about it. Company mention every garment that is not that pleasant to nature and explain why they still use it. They also provide details about all the issues when trying to change that. We think it just shows how truly transparent they are and want to change things

We want to end with their motto “ It’s all about progress not perfection”. No one is perfect and brands can’t be like that as well. But as a customer we just want to see their effort for a better future.And their plans to change are not set with 30 year timeline, they are going to achieve it next year! We can see how honest and transparent they are. They are not cheap, BUT they are great.
