We still have a few shoes in stock and will sell them with a 50% discount until our warehouse is empty.
Our store still remains closed. If you are in Berlin and would like an individual appointment, you can contact us and we will arrange a 1: 1 meeting on site.
Please read the withdrawal text carefully: Returns are sent to Prenzlauer Allee 31; the information about the revocation can be sent informally along with the order number by email (without scanning, copying etc.)!
The cancellation period is 14 days from May 1, otherwise the clearance sale becomes too long.
With every purchase from a small startup you support at least one self-employed person in crisis and save jobs and livelihoods!
As you can see in the photo, I am left-handed. Design is the least part of my job and yet it is my favourite. Especially when the sun is shining and I can sit on the balcony.
I’m currently working on our new prototype, modified the last to make the shoe fit better, and put my ideas on paper. Countless instruction sketches had to be drawn because I am unable to visit the last manufacturer, the sole manufacturer and the shoe factory and it is unclear when I will be able to travel to Portugal again without any problems. I would also like to have a look at a Portuguese tannery that produces toxic-free leather. Now I will probably use German eco-leather again which is at least as good – but also a lot more expensive.
The development phase still takes some time. Since I take care of my child half of my time, I am only half as productive. I also try to “slow down” a little bit at the moment, enjoy the spring weather and strengthen my immune system with some exercises in the open air.
What Rosa already knew
There will be a completely new model in a new fit. It will have a new sole made from improved, innovative material. We will be offering children’s sizes for the first time. This one model is offered in new colours, which we will reveal in a later newsletter. It bears the contemporary name FREIGEIST (free spirit), inspired by Rosa Luxemburg’s insight “Freedom is always the freedom of those who think differently.”
All other models that we have sold so far will not be produced again this year. There may be new editions of them in later years. The more uncertain the end of the current crisis is, the more difficult it is to plan. Due to the economic situation of our company and in Germany in general, we have to think very carefully about our investments. We will continue in small steps and limit our expenses to the bare minimum. That is still enough and goes into tens of thousands …
For this reason, we will start a crowdfunding campaign as soon as our prototype is ready. Then every Euro of you counts! But more on that in a future blog entry and newsletter …
We really hope that the world situation will soon change for the better,
Annette and team
