The concept of the MIMIKRI brand is turning old leather garments into high quality, one-of-a-kind designer bags and accessories. Each piece is made out of recycled material : vintage leather coats, pants, skirts or leather cutting waste. Each piece is handmade and unique, rejuvenated with special techniques like heat press, laser cut and hand paint – giving every item a new chance.
"We believe in leather: this is a highly durable material not losing its value in the course of time. On the contrary: it becomes more and more precious as time goes by."
Krisztina Nagy, the designer of the brand has graduated from Moholy Nagy University of Art and Design as a Textile Designer. In 2018 she won a Hungarian design scholarship named after Kozma Lajos with MIMIKRI and the recycled leather collection.
