A MOTHER has started her own online children’s clothing business selling clothes which are made ethically and only from organic materials.

Lindsey Smith, 38, of High Street, Great Houghton launched her business Minillie after stuggling to find organic clothes for her newborn twins.

She said: “I only buy from companies which pay fair wages and have good conditions. No sweatshops.”

The title comes from letters in the names of the twins Millie and Mitch and eventually hopes to open a shop so that more people can access organic goods.
