Summer in Berlin with “very Berlin” Shirts

Yeah! Summer arrived in Berlin – time to show our new shirts. One features an empty building close to Alexanderplatz, the “Haus der Statistik”. The  Initiative Haus der Statistik   is working on a concept to use the building as space for refugees and artists.

The urban environment is always our greatest source of inspiration. The textile design on this shirt references streetlamps. And we love the supersoft material Bamboo!

Our photoshoot took part at Uferhallen in Berlin Wedding. Here you find an interesting article (german) about the architecture. The LINK

Bauhaus, colour and fashion

Bauhaus and fashion –  the parallels between the German art school (founded in 1919 by the architect Walter Gropiu) are many-faceted. For our summer textile collection we took a closer look at Haus Kandinsky /Klee.

Return of the Drawstring Bag

These days, the drawstring bag replaced the Tote bag as ultimate hipster bag. Walking through Berlin you see them in all variations. Hipster beard boys on fixies in Mitte and tattooed pary girls in Neukölln – all with authentically urban hipster backpacks.

What made this trend explode? Is it connected to the growing health awarenes combined with back problems? Or simple practical aspects – riding a bike, easy and safe closing of the bag?

Besides the practical advantages the drawstring bag is a fashion statment. The stylish drawstring bags from s.wert carry the message „from Berlin with Love“. Not as text, but as subtle graphic prints, some with reflecting urban illustrations.
