Clima Customer Spotlight: Mnishkha
Polish fashion designer Anna Blinker-Lesińska founded Mnishkha in 2011 and began crafting outerwear that combined the functionality of a hood with the warmth and comfort of a shawl. Unlike typical overcoats or hooded ponchos, Mnishkhas are uniquely designed to be worn a number of different ways. The material can be folded and shaped to form a hooded vest, poncho, scarf, or simply worn as is — complete with a pair of front side pockets.
Blinker-Lesińska settled on the design after realizing women today lacked an elegant, yet functional piece of outerwear that could be worn in a number of different settings and conditions. Since its debut back in 2011, the brand has quickly gained popularity with fashionistas in nearby Germany and the Netherlands, with orders coming from as far as Australia and the United States.
To combat the bitter winters of her native Poland, Blinker-Lesińska has recently introduced a limited edition nylon ripstop Fluffy Mnishkha made with Climashield® Apex insulation for maximum thermal efficiency. The result is a warm, yet lightweight garment that retains both its shape and warmth no matter how many times it’s folded, washed or pressed. Find out more at www.mnishkha.com.
