Charlotte England, the designer behind Mkira, spent time travelling around the globe. This enabled her to try her hand at a wide variety of alternative arts and crafts.
This included studying pottery in Japan with a renowned sensei; traditional paper-making in the Japanese mountains; basket weaving among the Tepuis in the Amazonian basin and life-drawing in Miami.
The wide range of inspiring experiences shaped her personal style and design objectives and led her to create Mkira. As part of the creative process, Charlotte has teamed up with a number of small, authentic, family-run businesses. All use traditional methods to expertly craft these beautiful and unique collection of fabrics, furniture and enduring pieces.
