Who We Are
Miranda Bennett Studio is an ethical & sustainable apparel brand based in Austin, TX, USA.
We are a female-founded and independently owned and operated.
We design, dye, cut & sew our collection in-house within Austin city limits, reducing our carbon emissions and ensuring fair & safe working conditions & benefits for our team, every step of the way.
We create the colors in our collection with plant derived, non-toxic dyes - think roots, wood, fruits, seeds and more. Using plant dyes ensures we that we are keeping chemicals out of waterways and off of our bodies. We are honored to participate in the rich legacy of natural dyes, pioneering their use at scale in the USA.
We avoid the use of plastics in our textiles and work only with naturally derived, biodegradable fiber. We divert 100% or our textile waste from landfills.
Our production team is at the heart of our business, and every item we produce passes through the thoughtful hands of each member of our small, Austin based team before reaching our customers. From dyeing, to cutting, sewing, ironing, photographing, tagging hanging or shipping, it all occurs locally.
The colors in our collection are created from plant based dyes.To source our dyes, we have organically grown plants locally without the use of pesticides, sourced byproducts from other industries that we collect, utilize, then divert from landfills, and purchase sustainably harvested plant materials that we source from a global network of suppliers.
Our black fabrics are the only items in our collection that are conventionally dyed. We partner with a US-based facility in California using low impact conventional dye for the majority of our black fabrics; learn more here.
100% or our textile waste is kept out of landfills and our garment take-back program offers customers a no-waste option for disposing of our apparel at the end of its life cycle.
We aim to offer apparel, accessories and products for the home that honor beauty. We offer truly versatile, well-made items that feel exquisite to live with and wear.
