“Hate is not an opinion“
mimycri was created out of the idea that we have more in common with each other than we think and that we do always have a choice.
The recent developments in Germany make us feel even more strongly about our mission to focus on what connects us instead of what separates us. To stand up for UNIVERSAL human rights. We condemn any kind of racism, intolerance, hate speech and undemocratic behavior.
We reach out our hands to those who do not want to keep quiet.

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
- We are reducing plastic waste by upcycling otherwise rejected material
- We stimulate discussions about migration by our work, messages and products
We would like to thank the people who have already so generously supported us in so many different ways! With their help we could write the first sentence of this new story. Please join us to write the whole story
