This is huge: you can now get your own mimycri x Lars trucks Jordan 1 sneakers
These sneakers are the result of a unique collaboration between mimycri and the Berlin sneaker artist Lars Trucks. Made from rubber boat material, which was collected at the Greek beaches of Chios after the crossing from Turkey, the sneakers form part of the 2nd mimycri collection “I AM MANY”. Each shoe is handmade and carries a story of courage and hope.
You can find a video and more info on our blog article.
You can get your own shoes in our online shop.
Cooperations and Support
GET TO KNOW US
We are very grateful for being selected for the startsocial coaching scholarship 2017/18.
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
