We had the pleasure to have a small interview with Irene Mertens, Sukha's owner
When was Atelier Sukha founded?
The idea of Sukha started on my walk to Santiago de Compostella around 15 years ago. During this every day hike, the idea of creating a place where people could experience (ancient) craftsmanship, sustainable fashion brands, and timeless interior design came to mind.
Tell us about the ethos of Atelier Sukha?
The name of the shop is the heart of everything we do. Sukha means ‘joy of life’ in Sanskrit. We stand for fair production and take great care in selecting unique items that are (hand)made from natural materials. Often, they are locally produced. Everything we do is done with a great deal of attention and consideration. We want to show the world how great slow- and soulful living can be. Having sustainability at the core of our business felt really natural and future-proof.
How would you define conscious consumption in the fashion industry?
The goal for sustainable brands or concepts is to show the value of a piece of clothing — something especially made for you, by someone else, made from a beautiful natural resource. Something bought with attention and consideration, and making sure a new piece matches your current wardrobe. Every step of the way is done consciously, from resourcing, to buying, to taking care of your garment. It’s about building a relationship with it.
What does the term quality mean to you?
Something that, with the right care, is made to last and can be treasured for many years.
Describe living in Amsterdam in three words.
Ever-changing, refined, surprising.
Your favourite place for Sunday brunch?
For a lovely on-the-go bite: the Portugese deli across our store is really nice. They sell all kinds of Portugese specialties (the best pasteis de nata in our city), and the owners are really kind and happy to give you great advice. ‘De Deli’ in the center-east of Amsterdam is a lovely easy-going place where the food has that typical home-made vibe. It’s just delicious! Looking for the best bread in town? Go to bakery Gebroeders Niemeijer. And get your good coffee at Loof, Toki and Bruno’s Amsterdam.
Three favourite restaurants in Amsterdam?
Restaurant de Kas, Chez Nina, and Thai Snackbar Bird.
