Mimi is 26 years old, born and raised in Sydney, then moved to the sunny south coast of Ulladulla. Inspired by the beauties surrounding her and always having a creative bone in her body, she begun collecting vintage fabrics from op-shops all over, finding pieces covered in flower power prints, hand crotchet bedspreads to terry toweling blankets. Here was where she first taught herself how to sew. It appeared not a hard task to learn she felt like she already knew in the back of her mind and obtained the creative patience to carry out difficult sewing tasks. Forever being drawn to Byron Bay she found herself moving north and took her large vintage fabric stash along with her.

Studying animals and wildlife conservation, she decided to combine her two passions by naming her clothing label KHANUN after an elephant she worked alongside in an elephant rescue project in Thailand called the Surin Project. Through her sustainable clothing label she hopes to raise awareness for this project and other wildlife species in need.

We created this section in transparency to show you #WHOMADEYOURCLOTHES we believe in having ethical standards, and love being able to show you all that every single garment we make is handmade locally, with love by Mimi in Lennox Head NSW Australia.
