We believe in an authentic and conscious style.


Dutch Basics offers timeless, minimalistic and conscious design jewellery and bags. Contemporary classics created by talented young designers, crafted in our ateliers with carefully chosen innovative and sustainable materials.  Dutch Basics is for the elegant, conscious, strong woman. She wants to express her individuality, searches for quality instead of quantity, wants to know the reasons and story behind what she buys. She appreciates timeless creations.    


Our story


The idea to create Dutch Basics was born out of my passion for beautiful quality materials and design. But fashion for the sake of it is too empty. I’ve always believed that we should all make an effort. Interested in various social, environmental causes and with a sociology and marketing background, it was not more than obvious to think of how to create with concern for people and environment. An exclusive inspiring brand consciously made is the result of this process. Of course this is not done in one go. I started and want to continuously do things right.

Conscious and sustainable
Dutch Basics believes in cooperation and sharing. For every collection we collaborate with young talented designers giving them the opportunity to grow with us. This interaction results in new ideas and influences in our collections.

A great part of our production is sourced in our atelier in Portugal. I can personally follow the whole process. I know most of the workers, I know they are working under the right conditions and there is no child labour.
Part of our collection also takes place in The Netherlands where we work with a social enterprise where creative people with various restraints are given an opportunity to participate in society.

I also choose to use high quality materials, which last long and are made with environmental care. Silver and gold for timeless jewellery, recycled leather, eco- certified leather, chrome-free leather, and organic canvas for timeless bags. Using more innovative and safer materials is one of our main goals for the future, to make the beautiful concept of Dutch Basics grow.


Clean-lined and timeless
Interested in style since a young girl I’ve always preferred special combinations: classic items with a modern twist, clean-lined design but yet eye-catching, beautiful long lasting materials in minimalistic aesthetic, a functional twist in a beautiful design.

Dutch Basics stands for inspiring Dutch design. It is a tribute to the Dutch landscapes, talent, art and more. It is both an inspiration and a starting point for the brand in creating new shapes and combinations that surprise people.

Basics can be anything in fashion or lifestyle that we use in our daily life. They make our lives easier, more enjoyable, and more comfortable. They express our style and choices. We believe in quality basics that last long. We have started with jewellery and bags but promise to bring you more in the future.
