Why to buy: The T-Cloth tunics are handmade by Worldpearlslove in Germany. They are all made out of vintage and unique table clothes found in special places all over the world. Every T-Cloth tunic is unique and a single piece. One size fits all, but it's up to your style and how you like to be dressed - more loose or more tight. The initial table clothes have existed for many years and may have small inclusions and slight imperfections in their material. Just these little particularities make the single pieces so special and tell authentic stories about people, love and friendship.
What we love: It’s been four years since the two Berliners Carsten and Carlotta Teubel set out on their world trip. The mission was to discover the world pearls: all countries and their unique beauty, their diverse cultures and peoples. Inspired by these pearls, the high-end fashion label Worldpearlslove was born. Wanting to make a contribution to a sustainable future, they started making exclusive, unique pieces out of vintage materials. The collection impresses not only by the special materials and the high-quality workmanship, but by the stories that one can dream of them: Which festivals were celebrated on the tablecloths? Who put a lot of love in their ornaments? In the process, the exclusive work of Worldpearlslove is imbued with plenty of mindfulness and respect for the environment.
