While I sit here with my heater blowing under my desk to keep my tootsies from freezing, I’m dreaming of a tropical summer full of palm fronds swaying in the warm breeze, soft sand under my feet and swimming in crystal clear water… OK – back to reality! It’s ok to dream though.

Tell us a little about you & your business.
Mintchi is an eco friendly brand which I decided to create after working in the fashion industry for 7 years. After seeing the atmospheric pollution the manufacturing industry was causing to Asia I thought that was enough of me contributing to this and I started to hand make owl softies from recycled and end roll materials, this soon became a few more characters and what Mintchi is today.
What do you love about your creative business?
