Hello and welcome
It’s so marvellous to see you!
Silk is enjoying something of a renaissance and we’re delighted you could join the party. We’re dedicated to loosening silk’s tie, from that of uptight baroque opulence or 1980’s soap opera hangovers, to chic minimalism and Big Little Lies. Think less Timothy Dalton, more Tom Hardy.
In short, we think silk is sleek and suave, yet salubrious… and we can’t wait to introduce you.
‘Mimo’, the ancient Yoruba word for ‘pure,’ is our founding principle. With the conception of our Versatile Seat Slip, we engineered this purity to wrap around your busy lifestyle (slipped over a sticky restaurant highchair perhaps? Or a softer car seat, on those journeys when you just have to belt out Aretha). From immaculate Pillow Slips to soothing Silk Cot Slips, we provide you and your most beloved with nourishing simplicity. Trust and confidence, without compromise.
Our story began when...
Lara Felix, consultant and entrepreneur, found herself on a long-haul flight, frustrated with her rough, impractical airline pillow and enveloped the glossy silk scarf she was wearing around it.
Later, as a friend struggled to tie a silk scarf around her newborn’s head, Lara realised it was to ward off a troubling bald spot—and something clicked.
The founder of Client Service Coach drew up samples from her home in Sussex, combining clean elegance with style and function. Lara trialled her designs with friends—independent women, devoted to their families. They loved them. And mimọ silk was born.
And, in case you’re wondering...
Mulberry vs Momme?
‘Momme’ meanwhile, is a Japanese unit to describe the weight of pure silk. The higher the momme, the heavier and denser the weave; the more durable the fabric.
