Philadelphia based Mio debuted a new collection of sustainably driven, innovative products that owners either wear or travel with. Mio started as a company nearly ten years ago with a goal of making sustainability something that everyone can afford with products designed to be both functional and stylish. The company’s philosophy of “Responsible Desire” is based on producing products that can be easily disassembled and recycled using existing infrastructures. Their products are the result of not only creative design but also efficient use of materials, efficiency of shipping, and a closed-loop life cycle.



The Pop-Up bicycle baskets are made of powder-coated steel and ship flat. They can be attached to either the front or rear of a bicycle.


The Pop-Up Basket is a larger sized versions of the bicycle one for home or office use.



The Loop Cut Jackets are made from Tyvek and include a sewn in envelope that the jacket can be sent back to Mio in for recycling.


The 2000+ Hat Collection gives customers the option to create a customized felt hat from over 2000 options. The hats are made in partnership with local Philadelphia manufacturers.
