Mim-Pi is a Dutch brand started by Eleanora Nieuwhuizen, here’s what she’s got to say about her most gorgeous brand –
SUSTAINABLE AND GREEN? YES, PLEASE!
I want to make people aware of the fact that it is possible – producing sustainable clothing. MIM-PI is an honest brand. Deep down, everybody knows that a 15-euro dress can hardly be made in a sustainable way. For that price, the environment likely was compromised and people were exploited. By supporting brands such as MIM-PI, you make a statement: you don’t approve of these kinds of practices. The extra money you spend on a beautiful dress ensures that brands like us can continue our ecological and sustainable production process. And that feels great! I work with garment factories and clothing manufacturers that offer good working conditions. My logic is: what goes around comes around. I have worked with the same suppliers in India and Portugal for over twelve years. Factory workers receive a good wage. I put my trust in them, and vice versa. I visit the factories more than once a year to make sure the working conditions remain optimal and the people are happy. MIM-PI clothing doesn’t roll off a conveyor belt. It is handmade. Every item has handmade details and hand-knit designs, lovingly made by people with talent, not by machines.
