Inspired by Nature
We find in nature the inspiration for our collection. By re-purposing and giving a new meaning to otherwise discarded materials our aim is to help nature fulfill its course of renewal.
We aim for a raw look with a sophisticated twist. Mimo believes that our customer is a fierce yet stylish woman who will embrace the uniqueness of our pieces.
The fish leathers we use - tilapia, carp and salmon skins - come either from fish farms dedicated for meat consumption or from the ocean. The leather we use would otherwise be discarded back to nature, mostly on a non-environmentally friendly way.
We handpicked our worldwide fish leather suppliers ensuring not to use skins from any endangered species. We are committed to local economic development, supporting Canadian suppliers, while carefully selecting foreign organizations committed to sustainability and social inclusion. As an example, we are proud to support the Brazilian “Amor-Peixe” Association, a women-only organization endorsed and trained by WWF Brazil, with the goal of empowering women to provide for their families in one of the most underdeveloped regions of South America.
Most of the fish skins we use are tanned in a 100% vegetarian process, using a tree-extracted powder as the tanning agent. No chrome or any other metals are utilized in this technique.
Uniqueness of our Products
Some of our pieces are exclusive due to the organic nature of our resources.
We also try to use 100% of our natural resources, repurposing the fish leather scraps in our packaging.
All our metals are either 14K gold, rhodium or rose gold plated. Our collection is 100% plated in local supliers in Toronto.
We are happy to customize your order. If you would like a piece of our collection in another colour or size please send us an e-mail and we will try to accommodate your request. Please keep in mind that due to the uniqueness nature of our materials, its sizes, shapes and patterns may vary.
