Miyako

Miyako was born from the desire to create beautiful and responsibly-made lingerie, loungewear and ready-to-wear. 

The brand's co-founders, Sarah and Charlotte, share over 20 years of combined experience in fashion across design, sales and marketing and are committed to being part of the solution to build a more sustainable, responsible industry.

Designed in Byron Bay, the natural beauty and laid-back lifestyle of Miyako's home inspires each collection. The brand’s range features lingerie, loungewear and ready-to-wear styles crafted in sustainable fabrications including GOTS certified organic cotton and recycled polyester.

Miyako’s design philosophy focuses on considered fits and thoughtful details. Styles are feminine yet minimal, made for romantic moments, while suitably comfortable for everyday wear.

Miyako is made for days when the early hours stretch languidly into the afternoon, as you linger between home and your favourite seaside café.

Miyako’s range features lingerie, loungewear and ready-to-wear styles crafted in sustainable fabrications including GOTS certified organic cotton and recycled polyester. Currently, only 1% of the world’s cotton is produced organically. We are very proud to be using cotton with a lower environmental impact. There are many benefits to working with organic cotton. These include supporting more sustainable farming practices, reducing water consumption and improving transparency and traceability of production. Recycled polyester is made by melting down existing plastic and re-spinning it into new fibres. There are many benefits to working with recycled polyester. These include reducing the volume of plastics which end up in landfill and the ocean, and reducing the amount of energy, crude oil and gas required to produce garments.
