Amsterdam will always have a special place in our hearts. Houseboats bobbing, flowers blooming and bicycles ring-a-ding-dinging. We will always love two-wheeling through the streets of this amazing town in search of beautiful antiques, books, fashion and other curiosities. And there is one particular place buried in the centre of this wonderful city that is a must if you are in the hood. Sukha-Amsterdam is a cosy warehouse brimming with handcrafts, unique items and labels that will make you swoon...
Visiting the store is a wonderful experience, with quirky little poems and doodles in every nook and cranny, you are sure to not only leave with a full shopping bag but also a big smile on your face.
Sukha is well known for their eco-friendly mindset, with most products in the store having a sustainable background. The name Sukha itself means ‘joy of life’ in Sanskrit, the language of the Buddhist monks in India and Nepal.
Sukha also recently launched its own label Atelier Sukha, featuring a range of fashion, accessories and homewares. Everything in the range is made from pure, and natural materials like wood, wool, linen, cotton and cashmere.
Designers and founders of the brand, Irene Mertens and Sam IJsbrandy, travelled to the poorest regions in India and Nepal where they jointly developed the Atelier Sukha product line-up with local communities.
The Sukha-Amsterdam store is within a walking distance from Central Station and is located in the lively Haarlemmerstraat, which is known for its one of a kind boutiques.
