Located in trendy East Berlin’s Mitte district, Atelier Akeef, are a pioneering sustainable fashion retailer. Built on the basis of five years in retailing men’s quality streetwear, Atelier Akeef is one of Berlin’s first high-end menswear boutique dedicated entirely to sustainable fashion. With progressive styling at the core, Atelier Akeef fulfills the needs of the conscious consumer and the casual sartorialist. Stocking only the most exceptional garments and accessories, where the materials have been sourced sustainably and the craftsmen compensated fairly, the focus is on wearability, with the ultimate feel-good bonus of being entirely ecological at the same time.
Stocking more than 20 brands in the store, highlights include Atelier Awash, an Italian brand produced from organic fabrics custom woven in family run studios in Tuscany. Elvis and Kresse produce bags, belts and wallets from recycled London Fire Brigade hoses, waterproof, durable, and undeniably cool.
The store itself was created using upcycled wood, sustainable clay and non-toxic colorants, perfectly combining eco-friendly principles and minimal aesthetics. Accessories are presented upon reclaimed industrial trolleys and locally sourced slate, and clothes hang in front of an original Ochsenblut backdrop, while the changing rooms feature wooden Japanese sliding doors. Clothing can be bought online or in store.
