UPCYCLED COLLECTION

At ANKAA, we believe that fashion has the power to do good in the world.

That's why we've teamed up with mimycri to create beautiful products that not only look great, but also help to reduce waste. mimycri, a Berlin non-profit design label, transformed rubber boats with which migrants arrive on the coasts of Greece, into bags and backpacks.

Together, we're taking sustainability to the next level. Since 2020, we are using our tailoring lab to transform the boat material into stunning pieces that you'll love to wear.

And the best part?

Each product tells a story of resilience, strength, and hope - a testament to the power of human ingenuity and creativity.

ANKAA x mimycri - where style meets sustainability, and every product tells a story.

From boats to bags

Since June 2020, under the mimycri by ANKAA collaboration, we transform abandoned boats, with which migrants arrive on the coasts of Greece, into bags and backpacks, in hopes of sparking more dialogue about migration.
