Wear More, Wash Less
Taking good care of your milo+nicki pieces will extend their life, conserve natural resources, and minimize the change of your garment ending up in a landfill.
Our goal is to create with the intent to be a part of your wardrobe for years to come. To ensure their longevity, we encourage thoughtful practices when caring for your pieces. Taking care of your garments will extend their life and minimize your environmental footprint. We recommend a cool hand wash with mild natural soap followed by line drying or drying flat in the shade. Avoid machine washing, tumble drying, hot water and harsh chemical detergents. As a general rule, limit washing until completely necessary. For our plant-based dyes, specifically indigo, we highly recommend dry cleaning the life cycle of the garment, or at least 1-2 times prior to moving over the hand wash. This allows for the loose dye to set, and maintain a deep and rich blue hue for years to come.
Repair & Repurpose
There is nothing sweeter than a vintage m+n piece, so think twice before you let it go. If a button comes loose, or your dress shows signs of wear, we encourage you to repair it or repurpose it into something new. Tackle minor repairs yourself at home or source a seamstress. You can breathe new life into old pieces by getting creative with DIY - shortening the hem of your favorite dress will give it a new feel and turning an old floral blouse into a scarf gives it a new life.
If you love it, let it go
When you are ready to let go of your m+n garment, consider hosting a clothing swap party with friends and family, have a garage sale or donate the item to support those in need in your local community.
