miri bridal - for the free-spirited bride

we have everything you need for your perfect dream wedding! from bohemian dresses and veils to crowns, accessories, and jewellery. Everything is handmade from antique textiles, amulets, findings, notions, and more cool stuff from all over the globe.

The Miri bride is a free-spirited, travelling, creative, curious soul.

She sees the union with her soul-mate as a flourishing rather than a surrender of her freedom, and she wants to express and share her joy in this.

Why bridal?
Before I started doing bridal, a lot of customers told me that their purchase was for a special event (a wedding or a graduation or something). This always felt like such an honour.

Then one day, not too long ago, a big piece of antique crocheted lace seemed like it should become a wedding dress. That was it! The response to the dress on facebook convinced me to give bridal a try.

I guess you could say the fabric led me into bridal.

Textiles and weddings are a perfect marriage (pun?). To me, textiles are about family, community, ceremony, and life. This art form has been passed from grandmother to mother to daughter for at least 70,000 years!

Think about the fabrics traditionally associated with wedding ceremonies – veils, banners, long red carpets, ribbons on chairs, all of it. This is such a beautiful way to express ourselves and at the same time celebrate connections to the past and to each other.

The process:
The inspiration for each individual piece comes from the fabric. Traditional fabric is very engaging to me – something to be experienced rather than just observed or admired. I buy antique fabrics from several suppliers in different parts of the world, who buy them from village women. These fabrics are so beautiful. They are artworks, truly.

When I receive the fabric, I swish it around to get the scent (nice, like old books) and the feel of it – whether it’s heavy, light, translucent, the design, all of it. I think about the person who created the fabric, the history of that particular technique and what the designs may mean. As I’m doing this, I get ideas of what to make. It’s my favourite part of the entire process.

My favorite part of the story:
In an incredible coincidence, the sari supplier in Delhi is the single mother (like me) of a young boy the same age as mine. She gets all her saris from village women during buying trips to remote places in India. She makes a living for herself and her boy, I make a living for myself and my boy, and the village women make a living for themselves and their families! All of my suppliers have similar stories. These pieces have had long and winding lives.
