Eco Fashion and Sustainable Design are growth areas in Berlin. These areas are much stronger than the years before, also in the international market. Also Companies, Platforms, Networks and organisazions in Berlin have a bigger focus on the topic sustainability for their work. In the past two years new Platforms and Shops with this topic arise in Berlin.
Collections from Buenos Aires, Hanoi and Bangkok: Wibke Deertz’s label A.D. Deertz, which she founded back in 2000, allows her to combine her love for fashion, creativity and travelling. Her classic, timeless collections aren’t produced in line with the typical sale cycles. Instead, Deertz lets herself be inspired by different cultures and places across the world and gives her collection as much time as needed.

Since 2010, Schmidttakahashi has been experimenting with production cycles and digital media to initiate new processes in the fabrication of garments and to offer new aesthetics in high fashion based on these principles. Schmidttakahashi maps the relation of clothing to identity through its designs. Their vision is to produce unique one-off pieces from a selection of used garments that are later archived in an online database, where clients can retrace each item’s story by scanning a QR-Code. This approach provides every piece with an individual context and involves the consumer who, more than simply acquiring a garment, develops a personal relationship to the clothes and their respective histories.
Stoffbruch Fair Fashion
If you wouldn't know it better, no one would suspect that the stylish clothes from Stoffbruch are really eco-fashion. The fabrics are produced under fair conditions in Europe, designed in Berlin. The focus of the shop is on muted colors in white, black and gray with sophisticated cuts and special materials. Cool understated look, so-called designer streetwear for stylish and environmentally conscious Berliners and even affordable. Recently there is also a second store in Prenzlauer Berg.
Since the beginning of the 90s, Angela Spieth and Michael Oehler had the idea to make shoes so that individual components can be exchanged and renewed. Environmental regulations and ecological production methods are not only taken into account, but have a direct influence on the design. This creates a durable product that offers the customer a great variety at the same time. The collections were developed in such a way that even small quantities can be produced competitively in Germany and Italy. This proximity to production makes it possible to respond flexibly to individual customer requests while at the same time guaranteeing fast delivery times.
