Three hundred and fifty women were trained in sewing and felt-making as part of our training programme. MIM (Made In Mongolia) is a non-profit initiative established to provide employment options for women. The project, supported by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, is now exporting superior quality felt products around the world and is regarded as the highest quality felt being produced in Mongolia.
MIM specialises in the production of beautifully crafted Mongolian felt products, made with natural materials, seamlessly blending a thousand year old tradition with contemporary design and function. A new online shop was launched recently at www.madeinmongolia.net
MIM’s blend of tradition, artistry and contemporary design began in our centre at the heart of the shanty district in Ulaanbaatar. As well as generating employment, profits go to offering greater self sufficiency to women and their families, through our social programmes.
