Jeans and shoes from sustainable locals

Your walk begins at the impressive cathedral Domkyrkan. The cathedral currently standing is the third one built in the same spot and it was completed in 1815. From here it’s a short walk to Södra larmgatan and Nudie Jeans, the Gothenburg-brand made famous for its commitment to sustainability and lifetime repairs.

On the same street you’ll find the Icebug Store. A shoe brand for runners and everyday users looking for the best possible grip. The Gothenburg brand is commited to becoming the first climate positive shoe manufacterer.

The Magasinsgatan area is a popular spot to visit, with its foodtrucks, design shops and cafés.

Vintage and design at Magasinsgatan

Cross the street Västra Hamngatan och head towards Magasinsgatan. At Magasinsgatan 22 you’ll have an opportunity to add some outdoor clothing to complement the shoes from Icebug. Outdoor brand Houdini wants to create a more circular clothing industry, and in 2021, 100% of their collection was recycled, recyclable, renewable, biodegradable or Bluesign certified.

On the other side of the street you will find Ragtime Herr which offers top-end vintage clothing.

Pop Boutique is right next to Houdinian, and exciting vintage store with carefully selected fashion and design. Next door is Norrgavel where you’ll find premium pieces of furniture and interior design. Norrgavel was the first store in Sweden to receive the Nordic Eco label for home furnishing.
