The identity of MINGA BERLIN is based on the belief that only a consistent brand concept with an ecological and social commitment can be truly sustainable. We understand these issues as a part of our work and our corporate culture, not as a marketing tool. We don´t think it´s necessary to print everything in green with hearts and leaves to communicate our eco-social background. We call this Eco-understatement.
We set a great value on the origin of the cotton used for our socks and overknees: It originates from the MAKO bay in Egypt, a high quality, soft, long staple, GOTS certified yarn. Also in terms of production we leave nothing to chance: We were able to gain one of the leading sock producers in Istanbul to produce the MINGA BERLIN socks. It is a third generation family-owned business with 50 years of experience. The company is certified according to ISO 9001 (for quality), IS0 14001 (for environmental protection) and OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series). Thereby, the highest social and ecological standards are guaranteed, certified by GOTS as well.
Even with the packaging and shipping of our products, we pay attention to the environment: There are only recyclable cardboards and biodegradable plastic bags used in the MINGA BERLIN packages, and we ship our socks CO2 neutral with DHL Go green service provided by Deutsche Post.
