The Schoenenkwartier illuminates the history of shoes and leather as well as its future.
The Schoenenkwartier rests on three pillars: the Labs, the Knowledge center and the Museum. It therefore is more than a museum, much more than a curator of the rich past of the leather and shoe industry. As a podium, workshop, study center and laboratory, the Schoenenkwartier owns a unique proﬁle that requires not only admiration and learning, but also participation and awareness. On a ﬂoor space of more than 3000 m2, the Schoenenkwartier illuminates the history of shoes and leather, as well as its future.

Film Screening Going Circular @ Fashion for Good museum
21st of July 2022 at 19:00:00
The new documentary ‘Going Circular’ unlocks the secrets to an innovative concept called circularity -- an economic system that eliminates waste and saves the planet’s resources. The film tells the story of four visionaries from around the world - 102-year-old inventor Dr. James Lovelock, biomimicry biologist Janine Benyus, designer Arthur Huang, and financier John Fullerton - whose extraordinary experiences changed the way they think about humanity’s future. Each of their stories leads them to a fundamental reassessment of what our food, our cities, our financial system, even our fashion industry could look like if we create, produce, and distribute within Earth's natural boundaries.
