Mint Velvet

Women for Women International are thrilled to enter the third year of their amazing partnership with Mint Velvet.

As a company founded by three women, female empowerment is central to Mint Velvet’s ethos. Mint Velvet have championed the message of sisterhood through their fabulous We Are Women campaign and on-going support for women survivors of war.

Mint Velvet’s founders are also personally committed to helping the women we serve rebuild their lives. Liz Houghton and Lisa Agar-Rea have sponsored women from Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo through our year-long training programme.

International Women's Day 2019

#ShareYourHeart Knit

This International Women’s Day, Mint Velvet have created a knit which champions sustainable fashion whilst raising awareness and vital funds for our work. The knit is created from a sustainable blend made up of 80% recycled fibres.

Finished with a leopard print heart, Mint Velvet are asking their customers to #ShareYourHeart and celebrate all the incredible things that can be achieved when women support each other.

The Breton t-shirt

Last year, Mint Velvet designed a Breton t-shirt, with ‘We Are Women’ embroidered on the sleeve to support our partnership. Mint Velvet donated a life-changing £47,000 to our work in 2018.
