Announcement Welcome! I love to create challenges for myself and then try to solve them. In my shop I show solutions to the design problems I've posed. Right now I am focussing heavily on recycled or 'upcycled' garments. There are however some totally new pieces as well. In the near future I hope to be able to offer patterns for some of the garments that I show but thats still in development. If you have any questions or just want to chat about clothes and stuff then by all means drop me a line.

Circular, vintage and new
You will find circular vintage and new items for men, women and children in my shop. The vintage items are largely couture pieces that I made once upon a time. Made from new materials at the time, they have been gently worn. The circular pieces are based on quality vintage items and are embroidered, beaded, re-lined or completely taken apart and re-invented. The new items often employ unused vintage materials, buttons etc but also employ new technologies like laser cutting, custom textile prints and soon 3D printing.

You will find circular, vintage and new fashion in my shop. I use my couture education, ready-to-wear experience and years of custom apparel work to develop the pieces. Quality and attention to detail are hallmarks of my approach.
Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
Here you will find more and detailed shots to give you a really good idea of what you are buying. Also you will find shots of garments that are soon to be available as well as an archive of older work. I will provide any further pertinent information but please read my descriptions well.
And now to the thorny details of returns:
For customers outside of the EU I am unable to accept returns because of the enormous hassle with customs issues. Please find your garment a new home!
For customers within the EU I will accept returns on very specific grounds:
The garment/item is returned within 10 days of receipt, in the exact condition it was sent and it has not been worn or used in any way, except for fitting purposes.
The customer will contact me before shipping and ship using delivery confirmation.The customer is responsible for all shipping incurred due to the return.
No money will be returned. The customer may chose to apply the cost of the purchase to any new merchandise equal or less in price, any difference will not be compensated. If the price of the new merchandise is more than the original purchase, then the customer is required to pay the entire difference only if that difference exceeds €10. Shipping is, as always, the responsibility of the customer.
A return requiring an alteration or repair will be handled as swiftly as possible. Swifter and less costly will be to take it to an accomplished tailor or dressmaker. If it is my mistake then I will fix it for free. Costs for requested alterations and again, all shipping are the responsibility of the customer.
Within the EU, you may make a bank transfer which is FREE when BIC and Iban/Swift protocols are followed.
Customers within the Netherlands do not pay BTW above the listed price!
Money orders or checks are not accepted
Orders may not be cancelled once payment has been made.
Track and Trace and insurance (up to €500) is included in the shipping prices listed.
All items ship from the Netherlands.
I will ship by standard mail to countries within the EU unless otherwise requested; an extra fee may be required. If you are in a European country not specifically listed then there is a chance that your shipping costs may be less than the price listed for 'Everywhere Else'. Contact me with your specific shipping questions and requests and I will be able to adjust the price of shipping before you purchase.
Customers should investigate any customs issues and are responsible for all taxes and tariffs incurred. I am not responsible for items being held or confiscated by a country's customs department, nor for any import duties or taxes.
Additional policies and FAQs
Except for new items and materials, all items are either dry cleaned or washed.
Flaws that are above and beyond normal wear for a vintage garment are listed in the description. Please remember that vintage garments are NOT NEW and most likely have been worn. Pre-owned and reused goods may show minor signs of wear due to age. I always indicate any major flaws or blemishes and take pains to accurately describe a garments condition, but will not always mention every small flaw, such as pinpoint sized spots or holes. If you are concerned about a particular item's condition, please contact me.
