About

A Labour of Love and a work of art, A scarf handmade just for you.  Creating art is rewarding, and a little lonesome sometimes, I am reaching out to you to join in.  You tell me your style and vibes, I make your dream scarf, You and Me, a perfect collaboration.

My scarves are more than just a fashion accessory.

Each hand crafted scarf is a work of art, unique and no two scarves are ever alike.

Fine fibres of Merino wool are laid, layer upon layer to build a design that truly is "One of a Kind".  Many hours of rolling, agitation and warmth allow the fibres to tangle with each other to create a natural non woven textile, that is a work of art.

The result is a fine, semi translucent, soft and luxurious scarf, that is breathable, meaning you can wear it in all seasons.

FOR YOU THE BACKER, HOW IT WORKS  

My scarves are a creative process and a journey with you. This is as much about you, as it is me, creating a work of art for you.  

At the end of the campaign, 

  • I will send you a private message, where we will discuss a design theme and colour pallet.. 
  • I will then create a colour mood board for your approval, before starting work on your scarf.
  • I will send you an image of your scarf when ready, for final approval and then ship it 
  • I aim to fulfil all rewards before the end of February 2018

Should you need the scarf urgently, I will endeavour to accommodate this request if possible.

Thank you for this opportunity, I look forward to the journey ahead with you

Warm regards

Mimi

Risks and challenges

This campaign is a step towards creating a studio space to teach children with special needs. The tactile nature of felting is a very therapeutic and rewarding experience. It gives children inner strength and confidence.
The totally project cost is in excess of £48,000
My approach is, "small managed steps". By creating small campaigns, I am able to fulfil rewards to your gracious pledges, build a relationship with you and be a step closer to creating a warm, comfortable and safe space for kids to explore their creativity, uniqueness and most of all, have fun.
