A look at the spring collection inspired by the little Italian island.
The small island, Isola Bella, looks like a large ship floating on the blue waters of Lago Maggiore. It is filled with a blooming, baroque themed garden. The mix of greens, flowers, + the architecture is where Mini Rodini got its inspiration for this collection.
You will see this inspiration throughout the collection in its soft tones + colors from the ocean. We really enjoy Mini Rodini's take on the sculptures of the island in the form of unicorns + lions. The blue + green prints come from the ocean, where the bright red from the flowers that cover the island. The collection has a dreamy feel in the form of signature Mini Rodini prints.
Like many of the other brands we carry, Mini Rodini feels very strongly about the processes + materials that go into creating their collections. Even though they are a small company, being sustainable is always at the forefront of what they do. All of their materials (cotton, wool, linen, hemp) that can be organic, are organic. These materials do not threaten nature's ecosystem in the way that processed materials do. They use less water + harmless chemicals. Along with organic, they use recycled materials.This helps to lower the amount of waste going into the landfill + instead, it becomes new + exciting products.
Mini Rodini holds many certifications from third party companies to ensure they are always meeting the standards set for their company. They hold certifications from the Global Organic Textile Standard, the Organic Content Standard, the Global Recycle Standard, the OEKO-TEX 100, + the Forest Stewardship Council.
Mini Rodini also has a code of conduct for business practices. They want to be transparent about how things are being made, as well as where. A few examples from their code of conduct contracts are payment of a living wage, no discrimination, no child labor, freedom of association, minimized over time, + a safe work environment. They are part of the Fair Wear Foundation + use Fairtrade Certified cotton, helping to better the lives of cotton farmers. There are so many reasons why we love Mini Rodini + now you can see why it is much more than just their unique prints.
