POPLIN PROJECT POP-UP — TRADITIONAL AFRICAN TEXTILES

POPLIN PROJECT POP-UP — TRADITIONAL AFRICAN TEXTILES

Perfectly timed for fashion week, Poplin Project is bringing its sustainable collection of casual wear for men, women, and children to Berlin with their pop-up store this weekend. Each wax-print garment is hand-cut and processed in Abidjan and Grand Bassam on the Ivory Coast with locally sourced, handmade traditional African textiles displaying intricate patterns and vivid colors — ranging from deep reds to pretty pinks, ocean blues to show stopping oranges. One third of Poplin Project’s profits support social efforts in and around the Ivory Coast, focused this year on the women’s cooperative Sissi Barra – an organization supporting independent women coal workers in the port area of San Pedro. For the perfect pop of color for your summer wardrobe, get to Poplin Project’s pop-up, tomorrow and Friday (7-8.7.17) only. (Text: Devan Grimsrud / Photos: Poplin Project)

ENGLISH TRADERS: ECLECTIC HOUSEHOLD GOODS & GIFTS

ENGLISH TRADERS: ECLECTIC HOUSEHOLD GOODS & GIFTS

Forgotten your favorite picnic accessory on your way to Tempelhofer Feld? Fret not, and instead take a detour via English Traders, which you may just leave with more than you bargained for. Owner and founder, John Masters, keeps his shop well-stocked with a household goods, gifts and knick knacks of all sorts. The focus lies on “Made in England”, but here you‘ll find items from all over the world, including American picnic blankets, tiffin boxes from India and Japanese model airplanes. The essentials — hairbrushes and organic soap — sit alongside fun extras such as solar-powered mason jar lights, “seed grenades”, and brightly colored wrapping paper. This charming purveyor of high-quality goods embodies the old school tradition of shopkeeping: one in which receipts are still written by hand and, just for a moment, time seems to stand still. (Text: Cee Cee / Photos: English Traders)

PAUL MÖHRING — A THIRD GENERATION URBAN ICE CREAMERY

PAUL MÖHRING — A THIRD GENERATION URBAN ICE CREAMERY

It turns out the new ice cream kid on the block has an old soul. Opened in May 2017 by David Heinz, Paul Möhring’s concept is a tribute to Heinz’s grandfather-in-law, Paul (1906-1990), who’d create soft-serve ice cream on his Brandenburg farm whenever it snowed. He’d go outside to fill an enamel bowl with the snow before adding milk, egg yolk, sugar, vanilla and a pinch of salt, churning it for the family to enjoy. Today, the custom continues whatever the weather under the motto “tradition and madness”. Pick a base of vanilla, chocolate or seasonal fruit, then go wild with toppings ranging from Sicilian olive oil and fleur de sel to crushed wasabi peas and aromatic Szechuan pepper. The vegan “Hipper Sipper” sorbet (Monkey 47 gin, tonic and cucumber with Chamoy) is the creamiest of its kind we’ve yet tasted in this city. With its friendly service and innovative spirit, this small business with a big heart is set to take your frozen delight indulgence to the next level this summer.

ELEGANT EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS AT ANALOGRAUM’S POP-UP

ELEGANT EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS AT ANALOGRAUM’S POP-UP

When I first stumbled across Analograum on Instagram, I was impressed by its selection of objects, furniture and living accessories. Unfortunately I didn’t yet know who was behind the concept. So it was all the more delightful to hold its beautiful offerings in my hands at the first edition of Analograum half a year ago. Founder Franziska Wernicke has a discerning eye, which shines through her tightly-curated, high-quality selection, notable for its bold forms, colors and materials. The common thread is a balance between considered design and functionality: everything has its purpose. This Friday (2.6.17) sees the launch of Analograum’s second pop-up. Expect to see Studio Sabine Marcelis’ “mirrored mirrors”, elegant glass vases and bracelets by Christian Metzler Brandenburg and hopefully also Analograum’s own carpets, created by Wernicke herself and high on my list of coveted items.
