Description

Sukha is a cosy, little department store in the heart of Amsterdam, that sells beautiful, good quality, natural products under their own label. Sukha is a Sanskrit word for “Joy of life” that talented team from Atelier Sukha successfully implemented in every aspect of their design: fashion, furniture, accessories and art. Their products are handmade from pure, natural materials such as wool, wood, linen, cotton, lokta (handmade paper from lokta plant) and cashmere. Luxurious woollen scarves, wraps and cardigans, soft leather bags, jewellery, cushions, blankets, and much more are made with superior quality. Because of that, they are timeless, universal and they do not depend on temporary fashion trends.
The people in India and Nepal who make Atelier Sukha fashion and home accessories are the core of the Sukha family. The goal is to provide them with a fair and stable income and a solid base for the future. Products from Atelier Sukha are ethically and sustainably made from carefully selected materials and produced in cooperation with the local communities in Nepal and India. Sukha Foundation supports children in need from Nepal and helps them with their education and accommodation. Social responsibility, sustainable production, superb artisanship and refined, contemporary design make Sukha much more than ordinary design label.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q Natural materials

Having worked with beautiful, good-quality, natural products for many years, we felt that launching our own label was the logical next step. The clothes, furniture and accessories that we produce under the Atelier Sukha label are made of pure, natural materials like wood, wool, linen, cotton, lokta and cashmere. Our clothes and accessories will make you feel at home wherever you are in the world. And because of the timeless designs and the superior quality of the materials we use, you will enjoy them for many years.

Q Social responsible

We see Sukha as an extended family: our in-store staff, our illustrator, the designers, our poet-in-residence and of course, our production teams. In fact, the people in India and Nepal who make our own Atelier Sukha fashion and home accessories are at the very heart of the Sukha family. Our goal is to provide them with a fair and stable income and a solid base for the future. We spend a lot of time living and working with them, perfecting the techniques and patterns for our designs and producing quality handmade items that you will cherish for years.

Q Timeless

That’s why our clothes collection doesn’t necessarily change with the season. Instead, we listen to our customers’ (and our own) needs and wishes, and then start sketching, discussing, designing and producing. That way our own collection grows organically. And because we use natural, high-quality materials our clothes age beautifully, they are highly versatile and they can be adapted to suit any season or occasion. Our woollen cardigans, for example, are great in winter in front of a roaring fire but also make a wonderful spring coat or a cosy wrap-around blanket on long flights.

Q Sustainable

We find it important that the Sukha range is ethically and sustainably made, so we are involved in the production process from start to finish. Not only do we source the materials ourselves, we also work closely with the local communities that produce our designs: our soft woollen scarves are knitted by Nepalese women whilst the men make sturdy wooden daybeds, and our gorgeous cotton and linen tops are handmade by women in India. By providing them with a regular and fair income, we aim to create a better life for themselves and their families.
