mimycri by ANKAA
Partnership with mimycri
mimycri, a Berlin non-profit design label, transforms abandoned boats, with which migrants arrive on the coasts of Greece, into bags and backpacks, in hopes of sparking more dialog about migration. By transforming the discarded material into functional products, this material will be injected with a new, more hopeful narrative. Since June 2020, these products are designed, made and shipped by ANKAA Project.
