ORWO Merchandise – Photo history has never been so appealing

The ORWO brand already achieved worldwide cult status in the 1950s/60s with Europe’s largest film factory and powerful innovations. In 1936, when memories were still captured in black and white, ORWO – Wolfen marked the turning point in photography. Based in Saxony-Anhalt, the GDR company developed the world’s first practical color film. What was then the highest technical standard is now a form of art in its own right, thanks to nostalgia and vintage lovers: analogue photography. For color film fans, ORWO (Wolfen) is known for its film cans and iconic logo.

Nowadays, a dedicated community still gets hold of the much sought-after color and black-and-white negative films on Ebay & Co., shares snapshots in the nostalgic look as social media posts and lives the analogue vintage style. To celebrate this milestone in the history of photography, we have created iconic ORWO merchandise for all analogue photography enthusiasts.

For retro lovers and photography fans, we designed an exclusive Black & White Edition with the original ORWO logo. The ORWO merchandise garments are made of 100% organic cotton and promise highest wearing comfort.
