Miranda Bennett Studio
MIRANDA BENNETT STUDIO is a collection of modern, plant-dyed apparel produced in the USA by an all woman team. We dye our textiles in-house with natural pigment and cut, process and ship our apparel from our Austin, Texas based studio. Our locally-based manufacturing partners are paid a living wage and are made up of both recent and long term refugees to the Austin area.
The MBS design ethos is based on thoughtful simplicity with an emphasis on balancing versatility, comfort and style. Dyed primarily with plant-derived materials, including extracts of various wood varieties, pomegranate rind and natural indigo, we are now laying the groundwork for agricultural partnerships that will lead to seasonal hues for our collection representative of the ecology of the Texas Hill Country.
