“Local Tradition second hand” for a good purpose


  • .A.S.A. Abfall Service donates nearly new second hand traditional folk costumes to the Viennese Caritas “carla” shops
  • Revenues from traditional folk-costumes sales for a good purpose

.A.S.A. Dress

Vienna, 7th October 2015. „O´zapft is“ – similar to Germany, currently you can also find Austria wide friends of the “Oktober-fest” at various “Wies’n” and in beer tents for social drinks.
Anyone, who wants to appear in proper style, needs a proper traditional folk costume. But, not everyone owns such. For those who quickly need a “Dirndl”, “Lederhose & Co” and that at acceptable prices, the carla stores of Caritas in Vienna currently provide remedy.

From October 7th, high class second hand traditional folk costumes can be found at the carla-Shops at reasonable prices. The traditional folk costume goods have been collected from .A.S.A. within Austria and have been sorted and assembled according to the strict “.A.S.A. Dress Premium Qualitiy” standards. Premium-second-hand folk costumes are available in the
Viennese “carla”-shops in the 5th and 21st Vienna districts as
long as stocks last. Besides the classical “Dirndl” and “Lederhose” you can choose between folk costume accessories, folk costume bags, folk costume shoes as well as other proper clothing. Elisabeth Mimra, head of Caritas-carla-shops in Vienna says:
„The revenues from the traditional folk costume sales are
exclusively going to charitable projects. We are glad, that together
with .A.S.A. Abfall Service we are able to provide a special seasonal
offer with high class traditional folk costume goods this year.”

.A.S.A. Dress – high class textile second hand products

„We are happy to support a good purpose with our second
hand folk costumes. It doesn’t always have to be an expensive, new “Dirndl” – we often find nearly new clothing goods with
top quality within our collected goods,” says Dr. Bertram Laub from .A.S.A. Abfall Service. .A.S.A. Dress is an European wide protected quality brand for high class textile second Hand products. .A.S.A. Dress Premium Quality in particular stands for fashionably nearly new, partly unworn brand clothing, shoes and accessories such as belts, bags and scarves. Contrary to most chases in the second hand area, after the control and sorting process, the .A.S.A. Dress Premium clothing is cleaned professionally and ironed by hand, straightened and smells fresh.

carla – the second hand shops of Caritas

.A.S.A. Dress„carlas“ are the second hand shops of Caritas (
In the three Viennese carla-shops you can quarry for nice
second hand products of all sorts as you wish. Searchers find
there from clothing, furnishing objects and antiques to cars
(almost) anything. Each purchase and each donation supports Caritas charitable projects, such as the free clothing distribution
for women and men that are in emergency situations.

Some of the „carlas“ offer long time unemployed men and
women a temporary work place, qualification and support with
the re-entry into the new job. The three Viennese shops are
located at Mittersteig 10, 1050 Vienna, in the North of Vienna
in Floridsdorf, Steinheilgasse 3, 1210 Vienna (open from Mo-Fr 09.00-18.00 and Sa 09.00-13.00) as well as in the former Anker
bread factory in 1100 Vienna.
