The Stories behind PAAR TALES


We love storytelling! What fascinates us most is that tales and stories are told for centuries all over the world and still match the time and era we live in. This is why we created a mini collection PAARTALES where each of these four sock tells its own story. Based on true stories from around the world.

TERRAZZO

„My clothes have a story. They have an identity. They have a character and a purpose. That‘s why they become classics. Because they keep on telling a story. They are still telling it!“ - Vivienne Westwood.

Terrazzo design completes the whole PAARTALES collection and the idea behind it: clothes with a (his)tory.


MR. CRAB

Why do crabs have no head? No one ever wondered! Here's the answer ;-)

The original story was found among the papers of John Fumey, in Madina, Accra.


FROGS

This is a story about two frog friends, Drag and Gutsy. One frog is known for being adventurous, while the other one is lazy. What we can learn from these frogs that no one should ever give up!

The original story is a Russian fable of two frog sisters.


SUN & MOON

How the Sun and Moon came to live in the sky. It is a story about friendship, hospitality and homeland. As today in the times of globalization, we move to new places, where we find a new home and friends. And usually we even like it more there.  

The original story is a West African fable, mostly told in Nigeria.

Which story did you like most?
