Atelier-Sukha

Atelier-Sukha Sukha means ‘joy of life’ in Sanskrit. We're a place where beautiful things are conceived, developed and created. Find us in the heart of Amsterdam.

Practically all the items we sell have a sustainable background, are Dutch designed or produced and are all carefully selected by Irene Mertens, founder of Sukha. Sukha has an outspoken preference for handicraft, unique items and labels. Most products are created in small quantities some of which are produced under the Sukha label. Visiting the Sukha store is a wonderful experience with one-off poems and doodles that put a smile on your face.

A note from us to you. ⁠

We believe the beauty of things lies in the people who secretly put their heart and soul into it. ⁠

We believe a piece of clothing becomes more valuable the longer you wear it. We believe in buying less, in buying responsibly. We believe in the importance of knowing who made your clothes.⁠

We believe in deepening the connection between maker and buyer, between (natural) fabrics and wearer, between craftsmanship and end-product. We believe in creating a place where you can slow down, a place where we can connect.⁠

Thank you for being part of this slow movement. Thank you for being part of our Sukha family. ⁠

Love to see you soon xx Sukha

𝑳𝑰𝑵𝑮𝑼𝑨 𝑷𝑳𝑨𝑵𝑻𝑨 — a new Sukha familymember.⁠

@linguaplanta perfumes are consciously composed fragrances, handmade with care and consideration for the more-than-human world. Lingua Planta tells the story of the secret language of plants via scent. ⁠
Relatively new research has shown plants communicate and are exchanging complex information with each other, with insects, animals, even humans.⁠

It is the intelligence of plant life that inspires founder Merle Bergers to make fragrances with a message that you can carry with you throughout the day. Lingua Planta created five unique scents: Attract, Repel, Defend, Understory and Henosis. Discover them in-store or in our webshop.

One of the things we love most about Autumn is that we can wear our favorite sweaters again. ⁠

Sweater Luck is made by @fant.projects and made of Italian wool. The wool is slightly boiled and has tiny colored tweed dots, which gives the sweater a subtle playful look. Available in two colors, brandy (dark brown) and stone (light grey). ⁠

Let us introduce you to the newest item by Atelier @snekkerbuks: the ultimate backpack. It's super light-weighted, strong, simple and timeless. ⁠

𝑴𝑨𝑻𝑬𝑹𝑰𝑨𝑳⁠
The bag is made of the eco leather that is leftover when producing the Snekkerbuks punching bag. ⁠

𝑺𝑬𝑪𝑶𝑵𝑫 𝑳𝑰𝑭𝑬⁠
The buckles and leather fastening straps are remodeled leather skate ties (Dutch: “schaatsriem voor Friese doorloper”). These parts were once produced in large quantities from high-quality natural leather in the ice skating nation Holland. The enormous unused leftovers of the factories are now waste products, as only plastic is used for skates. They get a second life in the Snekkerbuks backpacks.⁠

𝑻𝑹𝑰𝑱𝑵'𝑺 𝑭𝑨𝑽𝑶𝑹𝑰𝑻𝑬⁠
@trijnsukha picked her favorite color. 'I really love the contrast of the off-white leather with the dark buckles. The color is so fresh. Which one do you like the most: taupe, cognac or off-white?

We’re a place where beautiful things are conceived, developed and created. Find us in the heart of Amsterdam”.

In Mali, skilled artisans continue to participate in the process of making bogolanfini, or mudcloth, a patterned cotton fabric derived from the combination of leaves of the nglama bush, iron-rich mud pigments from the Niger River, and African cotton that is farmed, harvested, cleaned, spun, and woven entirely by hand. Though it's a craft with a deep cultural history, it was on the verge of disappearing until Lidewij Edelkoort, birgitta de vos, and Haram Sidibe stepped in to create the Atelier Autodidacts Anti-Algorithms Co-op (AAAA), a line of hertiage textiles fit for the modern home that bridges the gap between artisans in Mali and consumers in the United States and Europe. Due to recent political instability, the country has lost much of its tourism, with devastating effects on income. AAAA's main goal has been to create fairly paid and sustainable jobs, which in turn help address the problem of emigration, especially among youth. With the support of the ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative, as well as social entrepreneurs Irene Mertens and Sam ljsbrandy from Atelier-Sukha, AAAA has successfully reached international markets and made Mali ‘the place’ to be for the young, creative, and lover of textiles, growing the skill from an art to a life sustaining practice. On this 4th day of our online #designweek, we want to not only highlight these beautiful mudcloth textiles, but also acknowledge the talented people in West Africa who are earning decent wages thanks to AAAA and paving a path into the future for this sacred and symbolic craft. To read the full story and learn more about AAAA, visit the link below. If you're in #Pittsburgh you can find these beautiful textiles at Weisshouse where you're sure to fall in love with them just as we did.
