The MüCKE Blog is an ongoing project. I call it a project as that is exactly what it is. It is a more interactive space than this one, where we can share things with you from behind the scenes. It is also a space where we ask for your input, comments and suggestions. It is a space that will become better over time, as it evolves and thats why we're calling it a project. If you'd like to become a follower, click on the link on the right hand side of the Blog page.
If the time has come to discard of your old MüCKE garments don't despair. By heading down to the Clothing Exchange with a bunch of your old fashions you can find some new items to replace them! Check out their website for details.
My mother is an art teacher and my father is a fine wood-turner. I grew up nourished by art and craft. Over time, I realised my need to create alongside my passion for people and the environment, inspired the desire to change the way we consume things. These creative passions, in the hope for a healthier planet, led me on a journey to discover sustainability and design. Sustainable design is a way of making things that focuses on quality and the processes involved in creating a life's work. I believe that when this focus is on monetary profit you loose sight of what it means to be designing things that are sustainable.
'Inspire creativity and positive action in people, have a beneficial ecological impact and keep the integrity of design by engaging holistically in the process.' This is MüCKE's Mission.
Quality production, ideas and positive action are integral to the MüCKE label. With a highly ethical approach to business since its' conception, sustainability for now and for the future are key drivers in this business. In striving to provide products of the highest quality from design through to manufacture, MüCKE ensures it's products have minimal impact on the earth. Sweatshop-free manufacturing is pertinent and the re-use of old materials to make new items, illustrates the desire for a cyclical rather than a linear system. The cyclical system represents a holistic approach to business and imitates the biological systems of the natural world. At MüCKE we re-use or re-cycle all material waste, minimise water usage where possible. As we grow our goal is to continue making positive change by respecting the processes of production, the planet and its people. This means being responsible for our products throughout their entire life cycle, from conception to end-life and back again.
