"ansteckend anders" is my label and after four years selling my products only offline, I decided to open my first Etsy-shop 2017.
I founded my business just after my first visit in Munich 2008. I bought a lot of ribbons, buttons and felt for my first brooches and sold my designs online and at local design markets. 2010 and 2011 I organized the first two trunk shows for handmade items in Germany together with some friends and since then, I really felt as a part of the arts & craft community.
When I moved to Munich 2011 I first tried to get connected to local designers and members of the arts & craft community. It was really successful - together with six women I founded the group "siebenmachen" and in 2013 we opened our own arts & crafts shop in Munich.
