Dutch woolen blankets, vintage curtains… WINTERVACHT designs clothing and accessories from secondhand materials. Materials that have proven and kept their quality. Of course all curtains and blankets are being washed and ironed before ending up as your new pair of mittens. And because these mittens are actually produced by hand, all pairs are limited editions. SO UNIQUE.

Ladies and gents, we may have found your new favourite hat. It’s entirely made of lambswool: a very fine and soft type of wool from the first shearing of the lambs. Lambs that are born in the fields of the Himalaya in Nepal, to be exact. Studio JUX owns a studio in Kathmandu, where 27 people work. Studio JUX counts for 3% of the clothing export in Nepal, which we think is totally awesome.
When the time comes that you’re shivering on your bicycle, with numb fingertips and red ears included, we’re praising the lord for the accessories of Atelier Sukha. They’re just as warm as the countries where they are knitted: Nepal and India. The mittens and hats come in one size, but do not worry friends, they fit most heads and hands.
