Opened in 2010 by German native, but longtime Athenian Sanni Baumgärtner, COMMUNITY has grown to be the go-to place in Athens for locally made clothing and products. In addition to our in-house line of redesigned vintage and handmade clothing, COMMUNITY SERVICE, we carry clothing, jewelry, home decor, natural body products, paper goods, food and gift items from over 40 local designers and makers.
COMMUNITY SERVICE is our in-house brand of redesigned vintage and handmade clothing. Sanni and our team recreate vintage clothing for a modern aesthetic, to extend it's lifespan and help it find a new home. We cut away the ugly, crop hems and take off sleeves and collars, until a new design emerges that fits todays aesthetic and lifestyle. We strife to create zero waste by trying to utilize fabrics, zippers, and buttons that we remove. From the denim legs that we have left over from making cut-offs we create denim skirts, the bottom of a long dress that was cut short becomes a tank top.
