MIMI PROBER creates sustainable modern heirlooms through textile narratives, preservation, process, and technique.
The MIMI PROBER philosophy integrates antique materials, natural luxury fibers, and botanical earth based dye methods to create seasonless collections crafted from rare materials developed into custom textiles and organically formed fine jewelry, with an emphasis on history, process, and handcraft.
The MIMI PROBER signature collection is handcrafted using recovered fragments of antique materials dating from the 18th-early 20th centuries that have been organically designed and uniquely re-developed into signature custom textiles. By employing ancient techniques and processes, including natural dyeing, hand weaving, felting, and embroidery, these textiles are reimagined into modern heirlooms. A pioneer of sustainable luxury, Prober is celebrated for her decorative and unique embroidery, beading, and lace designs. Highlighting the individual story that would have otherwise been lost with these forgotten fragments, through a zero-waste closed loop philosophy, honoring the hands that created the art.
The MIMI PROBER Fine Jewelry collection combines ancient lost wax casting techniques, sustainably sourced reclaimed 18k + 22k gold, reclaimed sterling silver dating from the 19th to early 20th centuries, vintage and reclaimed precious stones, all developed organically into a modern sculptural form.
The MIMI PROBER sustainable luxury Atelier, Ready to Wear, and Fine Jewelry collections are produced mindfully and ethically by partnering directly with local farms, mills, artisans, and manufacturers.
