Soul

MIRIAM PONSA is born from the passion to create. Investigate textures and explore creative paths is our raison d'être.

Non-conformist with materials and curious about techniques, Miriam Ponsa understands fashion as a discipline that is enriched by other arts. The research she carries out is completely free, based on her own experience and all that surrounds her. She combines the latest techniques with reminiscences of older skills and uses materials rarely used in fashion.

Miriam Ponsa offers a designer collection totally produced in Catalonia for authentic women who value design and comfort in their daily life. Garments with high quality fabrics and designed for women who want to move with total freedom and feel unique and special.

The principles that drive us 

MIRIAM PONSA was born in 2000, from the first moment questioning imposed certainties that take us away from our ideals and positioning ourselves without hesitation.

This concern has led the brand to leave the conventional catwalk and opt for its own show, with models that represent female diversity and giving value to natural and authentic beauty.

It has also led him to defend local production, producing 100% of the collection from local workshops in the first day and making its values ​​visible at MIRIAM PONSA Manifesto 


A new way of buying 

Now, immersed in an incessant buzz that is pushing us to push to buy objects that we do not need while the world demands us to stop with the overexploitation of natural resources, MIRIAM PONSA says enough to this model of production and consumption.

That’s why we decided not to produce the collections like we’ve done so far. We have decided to turn it around, and we will only produce on demand. It is a risky decision, and to make it work, we need you. We need you to join a new way of buying. With foresight and without urgency. A thoughtful purchase, with the social and environmental commitment always present.Without expecting aggressive discounts, but with a fair price. 

We are commited to set a fair price. A price that will be fair to you, but also for those who produce your garment. We guarantee that it will be a fair price for the workers of the workshops that make the collection possible.

History

Miriam Ponsa comes from a family with an ancient textile tradition dating back to the early nineteenth century. Her collections are imbued with the industrial spirit of centuries-old tradition.

A fact that marked the childhood of Miriam Ponsa who played among tangles of yarn hearing the never-ending noise of the looms.

MIRIAM PONSA project began in 2000 with the restoration of the old family factory, that had fallen in disuse for 5 years. The industrial spirit is very present in the MIRIAM PONSA universe, from the workshop where she designs each of piece, in the family factory of Manresa, to her stores, through the furniture restored from old factories and centenary textile workshops.
