About us

We bring artists and apparel together

Our story

SKINSINK provides artists a platform to display their art, and, at the same time make a living. 

Upcoming and established street artists, illustrators and graphic designers showcase their work on T-Shirts, Sweatshirts and other apparel, you can buy in our online shop.

All designs are curated, exclusively available and produced with the environment in mind. 

Next to supporting artists we are also giving back to the community by supporting good causes.

All the best from Berlin,
Erla + Nader

What we believe in

CURATE & COLLABORATE

We take greatest care selecting artists we work together with – taking into consideration art, print quality, size and colors.

Utmost importance is put into helping artists be their best while staying eco-friendly and making sure everyone feels comfortable in our apparel.

INCLUSIVE & SUPPORTIVE

Our t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies are unisex and fit all genders. Equally important, our products are affordable and not exclusive to a certain group. Everybody can wear them, they are cozy and feel good, no matter what size.

We give back to our community by supporting good causes.

ECO- & PEOPLE-FRIENDLY

Our products adhere to the strictest EPA regulations. The dye process has highest environmental compliance with monitoring to eliminate waste. Fabric gets reused and, water is recycled rather than dumped into rivers or oceans.

Suppliers reduce CO2 emissions by using solar power in their facilities.

Sustainable apparel

We chose Unisex Bella Canvas, a t-shirt with some of the strictest EPA regulations. The dye process (bluesign certified) is adhering to the highest level of environmental compliance, and, is monitored to eliminate waste. Fabric is reused, water gets recycled and the process uses 7x less water than the average clothing manufacturer.

And it does not end there! Bella Canvas takes every opportunity to reduce CO2 emissions, for ex. their sewing and cutting facilities run fully on solar power. Buildings are equipped with motion sensors LED lighting, which uses 9x less energy than traditional lights.

The production process adheres to ethical, humane and lawful working conditions. Our suppliers are WRAP certified and committed to maintaining and upholding responsible workplace and environmental standards. Gildan, which we use for Sweatshirts and Hoodies, supports a substainable industry and is WRAP and OEKO-TEX certified.

We support good causes

We want to give back to our community, people and the environment. That is why we support good causes by donating a portion of our profits to charitable organisations.

We do this through betterplace, Germany's largest donation platform. They support over 20,000 projects from all over the world, ranging from children's aid, environment or animal protection to education or development aid projects. Betterplace is fully transparent and doesn't profit from the donation as supporters can separately donate to support their efforts.

SKINSINK is run by Erla and Nader, based in Berlin.
