Sofie Andersson of Anekdot
Sofie is the founder of Anekdot, an upcycled underwear line that individually designs and hand-crafts their pieces in Berlin.
Upcycling for Anekdot doesn’t mean you’re wearing somebody’s old undies. Instead, Anekdot sources their fabrics from production leftovers, end of lines, off-cuts, deadstock and vintage trimmings, turning these otherwise thrown away materials into something meaningful for you to wear.
Born in Sweden and educated in Italy, Sofie trained in London working for upcycling gurus Christopher Raeburn and From Somewhere.
Her own boss now, Anekdot designs based on what they have. This does not hinder their abilities, but instead provides a framework for inspiration and creation.
