The best of ethical fashion in a Top!
MUUDANA’s approach aims to select the best societal and environmental options at each stage
We are fighting for a sustainable development preserving traditional know-how and ethnic communities .
The whole production chain is local , there are only a few kilometers between the cotton field and the dyer. The dyes are natural made exclusively from plants.
A top in natural fibers and organic cotton
The Tai Muang top is made of organic and local cotton from Laos (asymmetric band) and up-cycled cotton (base of the top)
Laotian cotton is anorganic and artisanal cotton as we find few. He is locally grown in permaculture according to traditional methods . It needs very little natural resources.
The up-cycled cotton comes from the ends of rolls of the textile industry. It is locally sourced at 1 kilometer from the clothing workshop.
The indigo dyes of the Tai Muang top are all made manually and from plants . The know-how used for dyeing is passed on in Laos from mother to daughter and guarantees exceptional quality.
