The story behind the brand:

Hi, I'm Mieke van de Water the designer behind the Mieks Knickers brand. 

 I have always loved beautiful lingerie. After finishing my art degree (BA Fine Arts Hons) I went traveling to Europe where my love for lingerie truly blossomed. When I returned to South Africa I decided to develop my own small handmade collection. People started to love my work and Mieks has grown from strength to strength. Each piece is still hand-made with love on our farm in the Eastern Cape and sold in selected boutiques around the country.

I draw inspiration from my love of colours, prints and the textures that make up different fabrics and combining these to produce original collections.

Above all, Miek's Knickers style is feminine, fresh and believes in the joy of indulging oneself in a little cheeky fun.

I hope you love them as much as I've enjoyed creating them!
