We spoke to Paola Masperi, founder of both charity Mayamiko Trust and ethical womenswear label Mayamiko. The charity behind the brand trains disadvantaged people in Malawi and other parts of Africa in creative and transferable skills like tailoring, and then supports them to use those skills through business and finance education workshops and micro-financing.
We spoke to Michele Riley, founder of Korean natural beauty retailer Niche & Cult.
We spoke to Kevin Garcia, co-founder and co-CEO of Karst Stone Paper (who’ve just launched a beautiful new website: take a gander!). After encountering stone paper while travelling in Asia, he figured out a way to turn it into beautiful, sustainable stationery.
We spoke to Jean-Pierre Mastey, founder of CORPUS Naturals. With nearly two decades of experience in skincare, he’s harnessed the latest advancements in natural chemistry to create fully natural deodorants.
We spoke to Kali Gordon, founder of Project Full. An architect by trade, she’s hoping to spread the message of mindfulness with her organic meditation cushions.
