Mimicry backpack, greige
An upcycled backpack with a story. Made in a project for social inclusion in Greece. Your partner in crime for urban, global and any other adventures.
The mimycri by ANKAA backpack was designed to accompany you in every life situation. It’s made out of the material used in the rubber boats that are being collected on the shores of the Greek islands of Chios and Lesvos. This upcycled material makes the backpack very durable and water-resistant, ensuring the protection of its contents. The closure strap automatically adjusts the backpack‘s volume for its contents and the shoulder straps are adjustable. An extra side zip further facilitates the adjustment by giving you an easy and direct access. We have added an inner pocket for you to safely keep your valuables as well as a strap to hold and protect your laptop. The mimycri by ANKAA backpack has a sleek minimalist design and a pleasant fabric feel. It’s stylish and convenient, making it your loyal partner for a life on the move.

The price of each product includes a 3% donation to the organisations on the Greek islands and a percentage to cover the cost of our trainings and classes in ANKAA.
mimycri is a Berlin non-profit design label which transforms abandoned boats, with which migrants arrive on the coasts of Greece, into bags and backpacks, in hopes of sparking more dialog about migration. By transforming the discarded material into functional products, this material will be injected with a new, more hopeful narrative.
The bags are produced in Athens in collaboration with ANKAA, a luxembourg-greek non-profit organization which paves asylum-seekers and refugees the way to work and education.
