Mintchi® is a brand of handmade softies locally made in Sydney by designer Joana Mintcheva.
It all started with a passion to eliminate pollution so the brand started with using end roll materials, stuffing made out of recycled plastic bottles and the first Mintchi® owl character was born back in 2013.
Since then more characters were developed due to demand, throw in some handmade quirky cushions in the mix and we have what Mintchi® is today!
The journey however does not stop here, as after a near decade in the fashion industry Joana’s vision to make a difference with her first love of fashion design and eliminate pollution in the production of this was a must.
In every product of the range whether this was handmade in Sydney or outsourced locally or overseas the upmost thought is put into using stock materials, not manufacturing and taking measures, which are responsible on our environment and the hands, which created it.
