After working in women’s fashion and inspired by a need for creative change of pace Barcelona-based textile designer Cristina Montaña founded Mikmax in 2007. Since then the brand has become synonymous with contemporary style with a collection of cushions, throws, blankets and bed linens crafted from high-quality cotton and linen fabrics in an understated colour palette that appeals to minimalists looking for something simple and modern.

Drawing from Montaña’s environmental awareness, Mikmax is also conscious about using only the best natural fibres and the most appropriate creation process. This philosophy forms the foundation of the brand, not only in sustainability, but also for the best sleep experience. “In my family there have always been many problems with allergies and atopic skin, ”she says, “so I decided to start investigating how to develop a bed linen collection ideal for sensitive skin, in order to improve the quality of rest.”
