Collection: tHERAPY Berlin
We are an immigrant-female run fashion upcycling project.
tHERAPY was born in Berlin in 2012 and it is run by two sisters separated by the Atlantic Ocean and united by this passion: ANGIE AND POLI Aguirre, based in Berlin/Germany and Cordoba/Argentina.
We work at two production locations sourcing materials and producing only upcycled clothing and accessories locally. Our raw material is 90% from second hand, vintage or discarded materials. We produce unique items and small series beyond trends and genders.
THERAPY IS RESEARCH ON IDENTITY THROUGH THE EFFICIENT USE OF RESOURCES.
We are WOMEN. We are latinas. We are immigrants. We are sisters. From this corner of our existence we work for a better FASHION AND A BETTER WORLD.
