Shop Studio and Label

The Faunauge shop studio is located in the heart of Südvorstadt in Leipzig. The hat shop opened on 28.09.2019 and has since been the place to go for those interested in individual headwear and headdresses. The range includes many products for everyday use such as headbands and caps. Furthermore, there are hair wreaths, crowns and fascinators for special occasions such as weddings or the Wave Gothic Treffen. If you are looking for a small gift, take a look at the scrunchies, earrings and necklaces.

A Studio combined with a Shop

All the beautiful things Faunauge makes are created in the unique space in the shop studio in Leipzig’s Südvorstadt district. When you walk in the door, the studio part with the historic spiral staircase is on the left and the two-level shop part is on the right.
On the one side of the room, you get an insight into many tools and processes that are necessary for building. Here I choose the materials together with the customer and the first impressions of the later product come together to form a picture.
On the other side of the hat shop, all the finished headwear and jewellery can be viewed, tried on and purchased. In addition, many of the products on display serve as inspiration for customised creations.
The Faunauge shop studio in Leipzig: an independent shop that, together with many other colleagues, makes up the charm of this world.

Events in the Shop

The rooms of the shop studio are beautiful. They tell magical stories with their architecture and furnishings. They literally invite you to use them for events in addition to the workshop.
And if there is a special occasion or holiday coming up, there is also a competition or two at Faunauge.


Faunaugeis a neologism. It is composed of the fantastic creature faunand the organ eye. The faun is a being from another world, he is half goat, half human. Through the eye of the faun we can look into these other worlds and be enchanted.
Therefore, it is not the butterfly that is misspelled here. However, the neologism deliberately plays with this association.

The Philosophy of Faunauge

On the one hand, I have learned traditional craft techniques for Faunauge and also use traditional tools. For example, hat moulds made of wood or French iron tools are used to make fabric flowers. Unique products are also created from classic materials such as sinamay and felt. On the other hand, as often as possible I try to process material that has already been in circulation. Garments that are no longer used can be excellently reworked in the shop atelier and give fabrics a new life. This conserves resources, one of the most important issues in afast-moving fashion industry. May it be Newsboy cap? Maybe from an old pair of jeans? No problem.

I get inspiration from many areas of art. Literature, films and past eras are very rich sources of beautiful forms. Nature (I also have a garden) is of course one of the most talented inventors. But the materials used themselves, with their inherent characteristics, are also sources of inspiration. My customers also always bring me new ideas, which I like to incorporate. And very important: my imagination. All these points together make up Faunauge’s style.

Faunauge’s style moves between natural elegance, vintage and dark romanticism. But smaller, simpler models with a fine straightforwardness can also be found at Faunauge.

Podcast with Faunauge
