The Stories behind PAAR TALES


Storytelling is a way to show other perspectives or to explain why something is how it is. What is most fascinating about all those tales is that they are told for centuries all over the world and still match the time and era we live in.

„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.
