SENSO UNICO OPENED A CREATIVE FACTORY IN EHRENFELD, BUT WHAT EXACTLY DOES THAT TERM MEAN?
Senso Unico already has two shops in Cologne and and their handmade Unisex Clothing many fans. Now the owners and brothers Mika and Lividi turned an old food manufacture into an impressive creative factory, with their team. In detailed handycraft the Senso Unico team created space for a fabric archive, studio, tailor, showroom, shoe manufactury, film production and »creative relaxation«.
Rough brick walls, meat hooks used as hangers, buckets full of old buttons, walls of yarn, a large wooden table in the open kitchen and a frequently used table tennis all call for a visit. Just like uniform or sailing fabric, exquisit pieces from Paris and Milan are turned into the wearable uniqum. Those who find the rough vintage look – a mash up of 40s streetstyle and detailed avantgarde – too daring may order tailormade pieces. There’s no limits to the creativity here. Of course the process isn’t cheap, but the concept is definetely also a protest agains cheap fabric and child labour in the mass production. Senso Unico’s theme is: »Things that will last forever (and all their pieces have a lifetime warranty) may as well cost a bit more.« Visiting this creative factory is – even if your mind isn’t set on shopping – absolutely worth a visit!
