MIKA is the brain child of Fashion Designer Melinda Looi and entrepreneur Dirk Luebbert. After volunteering and producing thousands of PPE for frontliners during the peak of the COVID19 pandemic, Mel was looking for a way to keep her family and friends safe and stylish at the same time. This is how the MIKA was born…

Melinda Looi, Fashion Designer & Co-Creator of the MIKA: “I created the MIKA to protect my family and friends.”

Dirk Luebbert, Fashion Entrepreneur & Co-Creator of the MIKA: “MIKA is not just a fashionable and very functional apparel, thanks to HeiQ’s V-Block technology it inhibits the growth of microorganism on the fabric.”


In the current world we are more aware than ever on what we touch and what we expose ourselves to. Textiles provide us with the most basic protection to our bodies, ensuring comfort and well-being. But they also provide a large hosting surface for all kinds of microorganisms, some of them are problematic for an extended utilization of the textiles, and these microorganisms can live for days to months on textiles and multiply rapidly!

HeiQ V-Block technology has been tested by internationally reputable and GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) laboratories according to ISO20743 and ISO18184 standards.
