Individually tailored pieces for the young and the old
The small studio in Kramgasse 1 is definitely very special. When we visited the store, we were greeted very warmly by Stephanie, who was sitting at her sewing machine creating one of her unique garments. This is what „Schwesternliebe“ is all about. Their focus is children’s fashion, but there are clothes for adults as well. Everything is handmade by the sisters Stephanie and Dominika right in the store. For men there are great T-shirts, for the ladies the dirndls are very popular, which thanks to the removable apron can be worn dresses in the summer. Due to the individual design options, everyone can find their own personal gem at the store. We found the handmade bibs for children especially cute. Stephanie told us that the absolute best seller is the T-shirt with the imprint „BAZI“. The two put special emphasis on sustainable organic cotton, which is produced fairly. As add-ons, Schwesternliebe also offers self-designed stamps.
What started as a homemade gift idea is now a tailor shop
Of course, we wanted to know how the idea of „Schwesternliebe“ came about. The hand-embroidered fashion for children and adults has now been around for over 12 years. Stephanie was 18 at the time and flew to New York with her aunt. Her absolute must-have from that vacation was one of the famous „I LOVE NEW YORK“ T-shirts. Back in Germany, she realized that she had forgotten her desired souvenir. Some time later, Dominika surprised her and gave her a homemade T-shirt with exactly this logo. This moment was the origin of „Schwesternliebe“. The desire to create something special and the love for fashion serves as the connecting string between the two sisters.
Alongside the „Gänsefüßchen“ the sisters offer great gift combinations
The full name of their company is actually „Schwesternliebe in Gänsefüßchen“. This can be explained by the fact that the two sisters were looking for a „store friend“. Thus they came across the cooperation with „Gänsefüßchen“. Gänsefüßchen focuses on high-quality paper design in the form of postcards and greeting cards.
This is certain: whoever finds a gift at Schwesternliebe, will always have something unique that was lovingly made.
Many thanks to Stephanie for the great insight into a store that enriches Regensburg.
