A little about us :)
Mimi & Coco is a South Australian owned family run business.
I grew up in a household full of craftsmanship, my mother was in textiles and my father ran an ethical-fashion company, this is where my passion for crafts and leather goods started! I've always been a lover of good quality handbags that are sustainable and last longer than a year!
I made it my personal mission to source my favorite designs from Italy, delivered straight to my door. Once my friends and (some strangers!) asked where my bags were from, I realized that Australians also have the desire for Italian leather!
So, here we are, inspired by our taste for Italian fashion, love and appreciation of Italian designed and handcrafted leather accessories, we source an exceptional range of genuine Italian leather accessories that offer quality in design, materials and craftsmanship at an affordable price. Our suppliers only use high-grade leather.

OUR ETHICAL SUPPLIERS
Mimi & Coco works with a century old factory in Italy where the craft of handbag making has been passed on from generation to generation. They’re amazing in what they do and rest assured that our supplier implements ethical working conditions.
Our manufacturers have a strict anti child-labor policy, fair wages according to local laws, no forced labor, and mutually agreed fair working hours.
Last but not the least, we believe in quality over quantity.
CARING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
We use home compostable shipping mailers which are eco-friendly and best for modern day shipping solutions, as we believe recycling is not enough. Did you know 90% of plastics and food scraps end up in landfill, and in that environment, they turn into methane which is a deadly enemy of our Planet. And therefore these mailers are 100% home compostable, but also made from such materials that if they ended up in landfill, they would still break down with no waste.
Our preferred Australian courier, Australian Post, is well known for their social purpose and commitment to the community. You can find out more about what they are doing in their website.
We will continue to work on our mission to save the Earth. So stay tuned!
ORGANIZATIONS WE SUPPORT
Cancer Council SA
We periodically donate funds to Australia's Biggest Morning Tea organised by Cancer Council SA. The funds enable them to continue investing in critical cancer research, reduce cancer risk (through prevention and early detection programs), and provide support services for people affected by cancer.
This is something very close to us and we take little pride that last year our small bit helped to fund 33 Beat Cancer Project researchers who are working on new ways for better detecting, treating and living beyond cancer.
We have recently supported the Australian Red Cross and the RSPCA in their bushfire support.
Take proud to say this is what your purchase pays for! We do this work on your behalf. So feel free to tell your friends and family what you are contributing to!
