places to go | people to meet.

Amsterdam is one of my very favorite places to visit and Sukha is a modern department store there where things are ​​produced responsibly and sustainably, using re-used and repurposed vintage items — like Clothing, furniture, jewelry, and handmade goods. Sukha means ‘joy of life’. Irene Mertens is the owner and founder of both fashion label Sukha, as well as the Sukha shop in the popular shopping district Haarlemmerstraat, named this year as the best street in the Netherlands. you can Find Sukha Amsterdam at Haarlemmerstraat 110, near central Station. you can find them on twitter and facebook, too.

    Ooh, I want all of this. I’ve never been out of the country besides Canada, and I have a list that is about thirty countries (and countless cities) long – the Netherlands are officially part of that list now.
