Our founder: 

Mers de la Rosa

With Spanish and half-Dominican roots, Mers's love for fashion was evident from a young age. At thirteen, she picked up a camera, inspired by self-portraiture and her mother's magazine collection.

At the age of 19, she ventured to Berlin to pursue her dreams of becoming a fashion photographer. Although her journey led her back to Spain to work on a startup, her love for distinctive and one-of-a-kind fashion pieces never ceased.

On 2022 she traveled the world, seeking inspiration and collecting pieces for her dream project. After more than a year of work, Rig Vert was born.

Mers' vision for Rig Vert is to create a space where our humans can find one-of-a-kind pieces that reflect their individuality and love for unique items.


How it all started?

Mers has always been fascinated by the stories behind objects. It was this fascination that sparked her love for antiques and vintage clothing. But it wasn't until she moved from Santander, Spain to Berlin that she truly discovered her passion.

In a new city and a new environment, Mers found herself in a time of change and transition. She wanted to express her inner metamorphosis to the outside world, and vintage and second-hand shops were her gateway to exploring who she was. 

As the years went on, her passion for antiques and vintage clothing grew stronger. She began to explore the world, meeting people from all walks of life who inspired her not just through their aesthetics, but also through their way of life.

Four years after moving to Berlin, Mers founded Rig Vert, a culmination of everything she had seen, experienced and loved.

Rig Vert is a reflection of her journey, a celebration of cultural backgrounds, aesthetics, and the stories that make each object unique

What prompted you to launch Rig Vert?

What prompted me to launch Rig Vert was a similar feeling of chaos in the fashion industry.

I felt overwhelmed by the endless options and trends that seemed to change too quickly.

I wanted to create a something that was true to my personal style and values, one that stood for sustainability and individuality.

With Rig Vert, I wanted to offer pieces that were not just clothes, but expressions of who you are and what you stand for.
