“I am a mother of two children. I did the embroidery for Biome tote and pouch bags. It was a new technique that required a 3D embroidery. The income from the order enabled me to enjoy my Christmas and new year festivities. The order also gave me an opportunity to learn new embroidery technique”

“I am a mother of two. I was both a machinist and embroiderer of MIMCO Biome tote and pouch bags. I got some challenges with 3D embroidery however after on-the-job training I managed to improve my skills. I used my income to buy food and new clothes for Christmas festivities.”

Miriam Munanye, 30 years old


“I am a father of one. I worked on the MIMCO Biome Drop Earring as a machinist. The stitching on the dust bag was the easiest stitching I have ever done. I produced 60 bags in one day. This gave me good pay which I will use to buy new clothes and food for Christmas.”

People first. Fair supply chain. Living wages. Dignified working conditions.

We carry out a Social Impact Report for every collection made in collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative. 

Social workers are embedded in the communities in which we work, and closely monitor the implementation of our code of conduct. 

Extensive data is collected to carefully measure the impact of each order, to ensure that the work is positively impacting the lives of the artisans and that our projects are working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
