Anika Beller-Kraft’s new brand Zechekind ("coal mine child") is comprised of bags and accessories made from used coal miner’s clothing.

Zechekind is based in Dortmund, a German city that is known as an industrial area with a number of mines. While the mines themselves have been closed, Anika Beller-Kraft takes all the old coal miner’s uniforms that she can find and turns these old clothes into new creations that retain the history and soul of their prior life.
