About CherryAndMint

On Etsy since 2015

Welcome to my colourful world

Hi i'm Zoey, the person behind almost every step of the process for Cherry and mint products. I studied graphic design & advertising, had my masters in Animation, in 2009 i came back to Cyprus and started a full time job as a graphic designer. Although i love what i do, a graphic designer's 9-5 job was not fulfilling my creative needs.

​At first I created Cherry and Mint in 2014 in a form of an art blog, i wanted to create a space where i could share my work as well as to push my self creatively in order to evolve and explore my personal art style. About a year later, i realised my excitement for surface design. 

I was already working on my sewing skills, it was something that i always loved and had at the back of my mind, i started making clothing pieces for me and my friends as a way to get away from mass produced items, plus the idea of wearing something that can bring out your uniqueness was always exciting for me.

​When i realised that the two things i love the most (sewing & designing) could be combined i decided to create my own brand, which i couldn't name anything else other than my blog's name. It started out with a small range of illustrated all-over print clothing and accessories and it's slowly evolving since then! I'd like to think of the brand as a project which reflects my love to create, explore and experiment through art and fashion.

​After creating my brand and being more into things, i started realising the negative impact fast fashion has to the environment. Therefore I try to practice ethical & sustainable views as much as possible. My textiles are printed with eco-friendly inks, most of them are organic fabrics and i regularly have products that are made with off-cuts so i can reduce fabrics that would have gone to waste.

Cherry and Mint pieces aim to lift your mood up through colourful prints and patterns. They are designed to be versatile so they can be styled in multiple ways & very easily to be worn up or down depending the occasion. They are inspired but not based on fashion trends so they can be worn for many years to come and most of all are here to bring more happiness, joy and colour into our world! :)

Thank you for being here! ♥ Zoey xx

Frequently asked questions
Processing Times

Most of my pieces are made to order to avoid fabric waste. Processing time for a garment to be made depends on my fabric availability, i usually bring in enough fabric to be able to make 2-3 pieces out of each item within 5-7 days. When the fabric is gone processing time until my next batch gets printed and arrive is usually 3-4 weeks. You can find this info on the description of each product were i regularly update depending on how much fabric i have left.

Care instructions

I want you to have your Cherry and Mint piece in your wardrobe for a long time. Even though the washing machine is perfectly safe for my fabrics (although no more than 30C), i recommend that you hand wash and treat your garment with care. All fabrics are first hand washed here in our studio and then sewn.

Sizing details

Every listing has details regarding the sizing and measurements of the garment. If you are unsure of what size you should order don't hesitate to contact me, i will be glad to help you choose what will suit you best!

Is it possible to have a garment made with another print from your shop?

Yes! Almost everything you see in our shop can be recreated with any of our pattern designs. Send me a message with your idea before you make a purchase so we can discuss further. Almost everything is possible!

Can you make something custom for me?

I can accept custom orders if they are alterations to existing sewing patterns from my shop, for example change of length, a pair of shorts without the frill as my original product is or a custom two piece set in a different print. Unfortunately i cannot accept fully custom orders as the process of creating and testing a sewing pattern takes time and error until the final product is perfected. You can send me a message with your idea as i'm always open to suggestions, your thoughts are very welcome here, so we can discuss how and if your dream piece can be made!
