BEHIND THE NAME
Phaedra was a Cretan princess and the daughter of Pasiphae. Phaedra’s name derives from the Greek word φαιδρός (phaidros), which meant “bright”. She was the wife of Theseus.
The Bronze Age culture of Crete, called Minoan, after King Minos of Crete, is one of the most vibrant and admired in all of European prehistory.
Ethical made pieces offer the opportunity to invest in exceptional clothing that has been consciously crafted and lasts forever. This summer caftan being 100% hand-printed in Soufli, Greece and hand-stitched in-house at our Athens ateliers is a key piece for an elegant woman’s wardrobe.
For Mia Papaefthimiou setting up MIA PAPA as an ethical and ‘slow’ fashion brand dedicated to sustainable practices considering both people working on it and the planet was mandatory. For this reason, the brand has collaborated from day one with expertized local artisans who craft the entire production line by hand, from sewing to printing.
