mimycri gives new life to rejected material. We are using what is already there and avoid the sourcing of any new material as much as possible.
We create beautiful handcrafted products, each with its own unique story of hope and courage. A story that you preserve and shape by wearing.
The bags are robust and water-repellent. Our minimalistic design focuses on the essential as the material is by itself full of meaning.
mimycri is a registered non-for-profit organization in Germany. In a diverse team, refugees and Berliners make history tangible by working together. We are upcycling broken refugee rubber boats into high quality bags and backpacks Our main activities include:
We are learning from and with each other through working together
