About Us

BRAND PURPOSE

The idea for Mika Yoga Wear began when owner, Laura Costa, was in yoga teacher training in 2008. She remembers being disappointed by the cost and fit of the hot yoga clothing options available and was inspired to create more affordable and flattering options. Together with her partner and his father, they began working to make this dream a reality. 
What began as somewhat of a niche clothing line quickly began to grow as we branched out into designing styles for various sports and leisure activities. Whether we are designing for yoga, pole fitness, dance, pilates, etc., the key is to create quality clothes that are comfortable, high performance, and beautiful. Above all else, the Mika brand is meant to empower people to move their bodies and feel good while doing it.
Being a small family owned business, we have always been very hands on with everything from the initial concept to the execution, to the marketing and photography and everything in between. In each aspect of our business we set our standards high and are dedicated to creating an experience that celebrates our makers, our doers, and our community. 
Our management team down to our production teams are treated with the highest ethical and business standards in the biz, and they love what they do, which we hope is visible in the products we bring to you! Forgoing a corporate business model, we at Mika love to keep it personal. From our boutique shopping experience to our small batch manufacturing of our own product, we keep our quality high and value our customers above all. 

Sustainability and Ethical Trade

We've seen just how much excess waste and overproduction fast fashion pushes out. Fashion production has an immense effect on the environment, so we feel like its our responsibility to contribute however we can in making our production and pieces more eco-conscious. From creating eco-friendly/recyclable options, to our small batch production practices to reduce our carbon footprint, to something as simple as packaging. It's just a matter of being aware of how you contribute to or help eliminate the problem.
Along with using biodegradable/recyclable packing we participate in the Green Initiative, are Certified Carbon Neutral, AND our swim, light, and matte fabrics, as well as yoga mats, are Eco-Friendly and 100% biodegradable. In addition, we are also part of CarbonClick, which is an optional donation at checkout where the proceeds go towards funding renewable energy and forest conservation projects across the world!
We believe in sourcing the best raw materials, adhering and going above and beyond the standard labor practices of every country the Mika team works in, and implementing the safest and most respectful production procedures with every person on our team.
All of our awesome employees are treated with respect and tolerance.
Long story short, we love our earth, our product, and most importantly, our employees!
