A store for clothing, accessories, objects and stationary by four Berlin design labels with a focus on handcraft and upcycling. SHIO store was opened in 2012 by Australian fashion designer Kate Pinkstone who produces a Summer and Winter collection annually under the SHIO label. Drawing inspiration from Japanese patternmaking, the collections include high quality basics with a street edge, using natural fibres and clean design lines. Kate is also kept busy by the SHIO Upcycled line, altering second-hand garments and breathing new life into unused or dated clothing. Both projects allow her to explore themes of Slow Fashion and Sustainability. In store the SHIO label and upcycled garments co-exist with pieces from 3 other Berlin design labels:
PASTPERFEKT - Custom Design Objects
PULP PAPIER - Japanese Paper and Craft
Jeanette Bruneau Rossow (TRECHES), Kelly Tivnan (PASTPERFEKT), Leah Buckareff (PULP PAPIER) and Kate Pinkstone (SHIO) inhabit the studio spaces behind the store creating honest, high quality, handmade goods on a daily basis. The SHIO store is a platform to showcase their works.
Open Mon - Sat : 12 - 19
