That is the story of home on earth and its two founders Mette (Faarevejle, Denmark, 1975) and Stefan (Stuttgart, Germany, 1971). Home on earth was born in 1998 when their paths crossed in Indonesia. Back to nature and to environmental awareness, these are the goals of this project that the two have been pushing since then.
Since the two of them met in Southeast Asia, they have been moving around the world and, with their keen sense and experience, have been looking for local craftsmanship in many parts of the world. Mette and Stefan lived in some of these communities themselves and worked with the products that make up the wide range of home on earth today.
Before the two settled in Barcelona , they were touring the world with their products at many markets and festivals. In 2003 they finally pitched their tents in the Catalan capital and opened the first home on earth store in 2010 in the heart of the Raval district in Barcelona. In addition to the shop, home on earth and his team can also be found at many European trade fairs and exhibitions throughout the year. The result of all the travels and experiences is an exquisite selection: products from all over the world, inspired by nature and manufactured using a fair and sustainable manufacturing process.
While walking through Barcelona in the summer of 2014, Antonia happened upon the home on earth shop near Las Ramblas. The smells, the music and the whole store design immediately cast a spell over her. When she found out that all of the products sold were items that were made exclusively from natural materials and produced under fair conditions, it was her.
Back in Berlin she couldn't let go of the idea that this store concept absolutely had to be brought to Germany. And so Antonia opened her own home on earth shop in Berlin in December 2015 . Since then, all Berliners and visitors to the German capital can now find wonderful home accessories in the Hackesche Höfe, which combine sustainability with design in a unique way. Due to the great demand, the online shop opened at the end of 2018 as a cooperation between home on earth in Barcelona and Berlin. The company is based in Germany.
