Our supplier is in a ditch, no Micro Grid until mid May.

maxresdefaultOur supplier has been consolidating their operations, and recently moved production from Massachusetts to Tennessee. Apparently, they got stuck in a ditch along the way, leading to some major delays . Our next shipment of Micro Grid fabric, which they initially promised a month ago, now looks to be arriving here at the end of April, two months late. Thus, no more Micro Grid hoodies, dresses, or anything else MG until the middle of May.

Meanwhile we are sewing up big piles of everything else, so check out our growing selection of Hard Face, High Loft, and Wind Pro. And many thanks to all you Melly lovers out there, we are busier than ever!

Crunch Time

We’re feeling the love! It’s been a crazy overwhelming year at Melanzana. A BIG THANKS to all of you who support us and buy our locally made products.


_dsc1235-2No, we probably don’t have what you want at this moment, but yes, we are working on it! We will have big fresh batches of all our products coming out over the next couple of months. Check the product pages on our website for specific timing.

We make our product in big batches. This allows to be efficient and produce more. It also means that many items only come out once every three months. We ask you to be understanding with our inventory. This is the path we choose. We choose to manufacture here in Leadville. We choose gentle, sustainable growth. We choose to be a modest brand, for the people.

Thanks for all your support!
