Mayamiko & Two For Joy

Mayamiko & Two For Joy

Today we want to introduce the latest member of our team Ferister, who is currently training to be one of our tailors in the Mayamiko Fashion Lab. 

We are very grateful and happy to say that Ferister's training has been sponsored by our partnership with a fellow ethical fashion brand, Two For Joy. Having the same values as us and wanting to give back they approached us and asked to make a donation from there first few months of trading and this money has most definitely been put to good use in the form of a full training course, her very own sewing machine and child care support to help her manage her time while training. 

A letter to Two For Joy from Ferister

My name is Ferister, I am 21 years old and a single mother.
I decided to train as a tailor so that I could acquire some skills, that I can later turn into a business so that I can one day become financially independent and send my daughter to school.
Through this training my life will change so much because it is giving me hope for a better future for both me and my daughter.
After this training I plan to open up a shop where I would tailor and sell different items. But before that, I plan to work from home, making different items to sell at the near by market so that I can gather enough resources to open the shop.
I would like to sincerely thank my sponsors for allowing me and for believing that everyone deserves a second chance and for giving me hope that I can do this and plan for the future, unlike before.
I will work hard to prove to my child,my relatives, my community that second chances are possible and with hard work and determination. Everything is possible.
Thank You Very Much

Even though all materials comes with a cost, organic is more important than you think.

When we choose our clothes, we need to make conscious decisions about the materials that are used. It definitely makes a huge difference.
