WINTER IN HOLLAND is a slow-fashion textile brand conceived and established in Amsterdam. For us creating fabrics is all about form and function. Focusing on both knitting and weaving allows us to choose the optimal combination between the aesthetics and the purpose of a product. Intrigued by the marriage between man and machine we continuously experiment and search for new and existing techniques. Our ideas travel from our studio to a workplace a few blocks away. Here we work together with a group of dedicated women. For them WINTER IN HOLLAND meant a fresh start. All the products that are made within this community of woman are marked with the SOCIALLY MADE IN AMSTERDAM.
The makers of our textiles, come from cultures where education for women, still is uncommon. Ever since they moved to the Netherlands years ago, they were unable to participate on the job market. Winter in Holland helps these women become independent and gives them a career within the field of textiles.
