Milapinou began in Paris, France in 2011, the year of the Rabbit according to the Chinese zodiac calendar. It was also the year designer, Dallana Bayarri, gave birth to her adorable little daughter, Mila. Mila is short for the Spanish word milagro, which translated to English means miracle, and pinou is French for little bunny. Milapinou uses a wide variety of natural fibers, organic fabrics to protect the environment, along with special touches, such as embroidery made by the hands of the artisan women of her beloved Mexico.
