Our Story

Miamohalla means my community.  We sell handmade lifestyle offerings sourced from local communities that benefit both the producers and purchasers through exposure to new markets, and through our social gifting model. 

Our dresses are designed to define childhood and are born out of our passion to create stylish clothing for our little ones that are easy to care for. Forget about the stains, and capture the fleeting childhood memories with your kids as they slash the dragons, jump the muddy puddles and ride the princess carriage! 

Our Mission 

Our mission is threefold: 

  • We want to create clothes that make little ones feel comfortable and fashionable as they embark on new adventures every day.
  • We believe in economic empowerment and we want to empower women in India. We do this by working with local producers and female-run collectives in India. Our production partners employee marginalized women who hand sew these dresses to provide for their families. 
  • We know the power of education and want to make it accessible. We donate 10% of the profits of every purchase to our non-profit education partner Crossover India. Read more about our partnership with Crossover here. 

We Believe in Economic Empowerment

Via UNWomen.org: “Investing in women’s economic empowerment sets a direct path towards gender equality, poverty eradication and inclusive economic growth. Women make enormous contributions to economies, whether in businesses, on farms, as entrepreneurs or employees, or by doing unpaid care work at home.But they also remain disproportionately affected by poverty, discrimination and exploitation. Gender discrimination means women often end up in insecure, low-wage jobs, and constitute a small minority of those in senior positions. It curtails access to economic assets such as land and loans. It limits participation in shaping economic and social policies. And, because women perform the bulk of household work, they often have little time left to pursue economic opportunities.

We work with programs and collectives that address the needs of marginalized women by promoting economic and educational programs, irrespective of age, caste or religion.  We do this with our production partners in the state of Kerala in India.
