Mimco: Ethical Fashion Initiative

Supporting marginalised communities in Africa and Haiti, our collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative inspires and empowers artisans to earn a fair wage and provide for their families. 

Since its launch in 2009, the Ethical Fashion Initiative’s mission has been to build a responsible fashion industry that measures its impact; They connects artisans, living in some of the most marginalised communities in the world, with the global fashion industry. As a result of those connections, artisans are given the opportunity to work on multiple projects that provide them with an income, as well as skills training and development—empowering them to create a better life for themselves and their families.

The MIMCO x Ethical Fashion Initiative (EFI) journey began in 2014, with our first collection launching in 2015. Our ongoing partnership, and a recent trip to Kenya, allows us to understand how design for the greatest social impact—and to ensure we maximise the positive impact each collection will have on the artisans.

Our partnership provides employment opportunities that help build and strengthen the skills of artisans and communities, which empowers them to eventually take work into their own hands.
