The beautiful city of Amsterdam is visited for many reasons. I love the rich amount of vintage shops and if you make an effort you can also find some ethical clothing shops. Here are some of my current favourites:

Vintage shops:

This tiny unique vintage shop has some stunning pieces from every decade of the 20th century and sells quality clothing from renowned designers. Even the shopkeeper looked like she stepped out of a romantic black and white movie.

Bij ons vintage

‘Bij ons vintage’ has two locations in Amsterdam where they sell original vintage clothes. Every piece of clothing has a tag with the decade it originates from. The shop is very neatly presented which makes it even more pleasurable to shop there.

My number three must be Zipper. They have a lovely range of checkered shirts and Christmas jumpers for this winter. A good place to fill up your Christmas stockings!

Sustainable and fair fashion:

Nukuhiva

Nukuhiva has two locations: Amsterdam and Utrecht. They specialise in selling trendy brands that are also fair and sustainable. The founder, Floortje Dessing, named her shops after an island in French-Polynesia. According to her it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. “The people who live on that stunning island manage to live in harmony with nature in a way we can only dream of”, Floortje explains on her website.

This cute shop mostly sells vintage inspired clothes. Not all their garments are fair and sustainable but they sell an interesting and beautiful brand called Bannou. This brand aspires to make every step of the garment chain as sustainable as possible. Designer and founder Faranak Mirjalili travels around the world to fulfil that goal by visiting the factories and building a relationship with her workers.
Address: Haarlemmerstraat 25 and Prinsengracht 201
