Mini Stitches create gorgeous, on-trend kids clothes for boys and girls. The collection is made in East London as part of a pioneering project by Stitches in Time who have been bringing together communities through creative projects for over 20 years.
Tower Hamlets is an area of high deprivation. An estimated 44% of households are in income poverty, the highest rate in England, and female unemployment in the local Bangladeshi community is 75%. Mini Stitches offers free industry standard training in garment manufacture alongside English classes, mentoring and work experience. The aim is to empower local women and revolutionise the UK’s ethical clothing supply chain,.
“As this community-made, children’s clothing brand develops and grows, so does the women’s ambitions, self-belief and sense of achievement. Seeing how much they are capable of, individually and collectively, has allowed many women to see their dreams as attainable” – Katie Adkins, Director of Enterprise and Outreach.”
We say "I want these clothes in my size - they are absolutely gorgeous. I love the whole idea behind the company. This is not just a charity, it's a fantastic business with products as amazing as their ethics"
