What new and exciting ranges are you launching at the AGHA Melbourne Gift Fair?
We will be showcasing our Enthusiasts range and also introducing a limited edition range.
What is the inspiration behind your product ranges?
It is our mission to develop, design and produce high quality fashion accessories that support mental health services to respond to the needs of people and the community.
Each of our designs has a positive word on the sole of the foot, these words help with starting the conversation around maintaining positive mental health.
What is your point of difference?
Each pair of uniquely designed pair of socks come with an encourage word embedded on the sole of the foot. We are a fashion brand with substance and passion for the community.
What is the story behind your brand?
Mind Socks is a Mental Health Initiative founded by creative, entrepreneurial duo Mila Dhurbarry and Carissa Belham. We combine fashion with substance to bring mindfulness, positivity, empowerment and change.
For every pair of socks sold, a percentage is donated to the community to support other experiencing Mental Health issues.
Currently 10% of all proceeds fund a service called “Get Growing” to educate and support adolescents at risk of Mental Health Issues.
Mind Socks is currently supporting the national non-for-profit organisation GROW through donating 10% of the business proceeds to a program called The Get Growing Program. Get growing is an in-school program that helps young people aged 10-18, who are identified as ‘at risk’, gain important social and emotional life skills. Get growing is a pathway to positive change and fosters self-value and esteem, acceptance and resilience. Get growing aims at countering self-harm, negative behaviour and isolation.
