It has become increasingly important to know a brand well before buying their product. Mist was created with the well-being of girls and women in mind, never forgetting all the people who contribute to the process of creating our pieces.
We are constantly on the lookout for better ways to reduce our environmental impact to be more sustainable, an essential value for us from the start. From materials, suppliers, factories and packaging - everything has an impact and we intend to continue making the best choices we can.
In the creation and design we seek to create alternatives in order to reduce the number of sizes required and always consider the adaptability of the pieces, which we design with the longevity of the product in mind.
All our bikinis are produced in Portugal and we think of all our suppliers as partners.
We work with local factories that guarantee good working conditions and follow the whole process, collaborating to develop the best possible pieces.
The material we chose for our bikinis is a fabric with ECONYL®, recycled and regenerated from fishing nets and other nylon scraps collected from the ocean, in order to reuse existing resources. This fabric combined with the best Italian LYCRA® XTRA LIFE ™ results in a soft touch and lasting quality.
Some of the leftover fabric from production is used to print our care labels and our black logo labels are made of recycled polyester. The printing of our fabrics is made in Portugal.
In our 2021 collection we also introduced a textured fabric, also made of certified recycled fabric. All processes such as plastic collection, production of the yarn and fabric are done in Spain, which allows us to also reduce our impact. It is important for us to continue to search for responsible alternatives and practices and to be able to bring them to you.
We are always on the lookout for new ways to reduce and reuse our leftover fabric from production, such as innovations in processes and materials.
Every small detail counts, and even for the plastic hygienic protections we have found a solution. The protections in our bikinis are made from sugarcane fibres, which makes them biodegradable - less waste, less worries.
PRODUCTION VOLUME AND PRODUCT LONGEVITY
We have as one of our top priorities the value of quality over quantity. We want to inspire a conscious purchase and for this reason we produce quality pieces which, when treated with due care, can last several years.
Our packaging was created for convenience and meant to be re-used. A versatile bag made of organic cotton produced in Portugal that you can use as you see fit.
Some of our future goals include minimizing plastic during our production and distribution, reduce leftover fabrics and organize a product return system.
These values are also present in the creation and design of our swimwear pieces, where we aim to find alternatives to reduce the number of sizes while considering the adaptability of our styles and designing with longevity in mind.
It is important for us that our styles can adapt to the measurements of each women in order to guarantee maximum comfort, but also that their versatility can allow you to feel beautiful and confident wearing them for a long time. We aim to create styles that can adapt not only to various body types but that can also be worn in different ways, with cross back or straight straps, with a tie at the front or at the back - every detail has a purpose. We create and produce bikinis with plastic wires for maximum comfort, the most adequate material we have found so far, with high flexibility and durability without compromising the quality of our pieces.
