Origami Kona Dress
Maelu is a recently relocated-to-Portland company (previously from Atlanta, GA). In an effort to source textiles with a mind for sustainable and ethical practices, Maelu directly purchases their beautifully block-printed textiles from a small batch manufacturing company in India whom has been fabricating this technique of textile printed for decades. The garments themselves were designed in their Atlanta studio (newly relocated to Portland, OR).
Also from their website, “Maelu strives to follow a sustainable business model by not only creating naturally made items but by also making responsible business decisions. Maelu directly supports the artisans in India that block-print the beautiful fabric and also donates a portion of all profits directly to www.globalfundforwomen.org, a non-profit foundation supporting the advancement of women's human rights around the world.”

- Because these garments are made by hand with natural dyes, slight color differences and imperfections between fabrics are expected. These differences enhance the beauty of our textiles and are celebrated. Some natural dyes, especially indigo, may bleed and transfer. It is recommended that washing gently or with like colors in cold water and air drying will increase the longevity of your garment.
