vintageBambi - your secondhand and reworked shop from Stuttgart, Germany
Hi, I'm Katharina, I have a background in sewing and fashion. My passion for sustainability is almost as big as my love for fashion. As it is always difficult to find sustainable clothing that supports ones personal style, it was my dream to create an eco-friendly brand that combines style, individuality and sustainability!
After spending hours and hours thrifting and reworking clothes, I finally decided to open a store that would feature both elegant and sporty pieces handmade by me.
Here at vintageBambi the focus is on reuse and waste reduction, that's why we only use second-hand materials for our handmade clothes. This results in every product being unique or only available in a few editions.
To complement your personal style, we also have beautiful vintage and second-hand clothing for you, which is lovingly selected and carefully refurbished.
We all know what the fast fashion industry is doing to our environment. After the oil industy, the clothing and textile industry is the largest polluter in the world. Nearly 20% of global waste water is produced by the fashion industry. It needs 8000l to produce just one pair of jeans! (that's insane)
Germany produces 391,752 tonnes of textile waste every year.
Only a very small proportion ends up in the second-hand shop around the corner, much of it has to be incinerated or is shipped to Africa where it destroys the small businesses there.
For this and many other environmental reasons we try to save as much clothing as possible and give it to new owners who value it.
A huge thank you to each and every one of you, whether you are here for the beautiful clothes or for the sustainable aspects or both. I am greatful for you. Together we can make a difference!
The dream is, giving you the opportunity to shop for stylish clothes from the comfort of your own home and doing something good for the environment at the same time by saving clothes from being wasted.
