DUTCH FAIR FASHION BRANDS IN AMERSFOORT

Since I started to be more conscious about fashion, I get a lot of questions about where to shop in Amersfoort, the city I live in. I did my research and found three Dutch brands that do a good job towards a sustainable way of producing clothes. This is what I found out.

  1. Expresso

Expresso

Expresso is a Dutch fashion brand with a sustainable and social responsibility mission. The brand is committed to a socially responsible production and ensures good working conditions in the factories, sustainable materials and they donate to charities and social initiatives. On their website they give you this tips about how to maintain your clothes longer: 

  • You don’t always need to wash your clothes after you wore it. Sometimes
    you just need to hang them out in the fresh air and that is enough.
  • Use an eco-friendly detergent. Check on the packaging for the EU Ecolabel.
  • If your clothes are not so dirty, you can wash them at 30°.
  • Air dry your clothes instead of using a drying machine.
  • Instead of throwing away clothes, donate them to an organization that makes other people happy with it. Or they might recycle it.

When you are in the Langestraat you definitely have to stop by at this shop and check out their collection. The address is Langestraat 22 3811 AG Amersfoort
The price range is between €24,-  and €200,-.

  1. Great post! An important one is missing, though: SARI Fair Fashion in Koestraat! They have their own fair fashion label, sell beautifull fair fabrics and sell clothes from other fair fashion brands, like Armed Angels.

    1. Hi Suzanne thank you very much for your tip! When I did my research I was only focused on the “Langestraat” but I will write an update soon because I also found another shop that sells fair fashion. “Kaizerin”, have you been there?
