They say every picture tells a story, and I like to think that every garment does too. That's why, with every piece you buy, I will include a delightful "story" of the life that your garment once led.

Jane's sweater climbed the Berlin Wall

This special little sweater was made in West Germany by Mondi. Its a great knit sweater with black satiny decorative. Ok now for your vintage story. Jane was 19 years old in November 1989 in East Germany. She and her friends had spent their entire lives never entering West Germany and couldn't wait for the liberation of their country and for the unification of their people. On November 9, 1989 crowds of East Germans climbed the Berlin wall and celebrated with the West Germans. Jane will never forget this sweater because it was the first thing she bought once she climbed over the wall. 99 Luftballoons!!

Mondi Sweater with black detail $26. Fits size XS-SMALL
