When making a Misha & Puff garment, the integrity of every step in the production process matters.
We're careful about who we work with. We choose artisan partners who share our values and who care about the above as much as we do.
The integrity of every step in the production process matters.
Misha & Puff has always incorporated the highest quality materials, responsible sourcing and production practices in addition to paying fair wages to deliver heirlooms for future generations with love.
Our team has been partnering with our global vendors and working on this over the past seasons to accomplish this feat to provide a premium fiber that is good for all. To date, we have made the investment and used Responsible Wool as supply allowed. This year we have made the commitment to fully transition to using only RWS wool fibers moving forward.
Our work is ongoing, and our goal is to operate responsibly and improve each season, so we thank you for your support in being a sustainable brand advocate. Read more about RWS certification here.
Pima cotton, which originated in Peru, has a longer fiber than traditional cotton.. This makes for a softer and more durable weave, which is important when making products for children – or for any product that you want to last a lifetime.
Misha & Puff garments made with cotton use 100% pima cotton from Peru. And when we say 100%, we mean it! No blends here.
In addition, some of our pima cotton fabric is 100% organic certified (we note this on the product pages).
Misha & Puff is famous for producing gorgeous, knitted garments. But did you know that there are other ways to knit besides using traditional knitting needles? And that our garments today may incorporate a bunch of techniques from start to finish?
Hand-knitting.Think knitting needles and skeins of yarn.
Manual knitting machine.It's NOT electric. Think of it like the knitting version of a loom that you would use in weaving. Some people classify manual knitting machines as hand knitting, but some don't. It depends on your definition of hand-knitting.
Industrial knitting machines.This is an electric machine, and it can range in size, style, and capabilities.
The knitting cooperatives do a combination of knitting by hand, manual machine, and industrial machine. It’s because of this combination of techniques and flexibility that knitting in Peru is so special. For example, one part of the garment might be done with an industrial machine, but then another part might have crochet edging. Two different knitting groups might be working together on this garment (or multiple knitters within the same group).
We also have a textile partner in Arequipa that has a machine knitting factory in addition to knitting cooperatives.
