I worked on the Mimco Spring-Summer 2016 order. I had a great experience and I learned a lot. Even when it was difficult at times, I did my best to satisfy the customer. This order has been a great help to me, particularly in supporting my children. I love to work so I can help my children. I love to learn because I know I can succeed with many things that I learn.

I am an orphan. I worked on the Mimco Spring-Summer 2016 order as both a jewellery mounter and beader. It was my first work experience and because I received training in jewellery mounting it’s now a new job for me. With the money from the order I helped my aunt who was very sick, and I have been saving, it has been a very great benefit.

I was looking for a job because I needed money to send my child to school. I worked on the Mimco Spring-Summer 2016 order in beading and packaging. It was a very interesting experience.

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.
