With an evocative sense of the Far East, the interior of this store alone is worth a visit. Many of the items are handcrafted in India and Nepal by locals, for Atelier Sukha, including homeware, furnishings, and clothing. Sukha pride themselves on sustainable and ethical fashion without compromising on luxury. Luckily they’re also online if you don’t have time to make it in.

It’s possible that the first hipster probably originated in Amsterdam and Hutspot is its natural habitat! Hutspot is more of a creative collective than just a shopping experience. Achingly cool, you have to check out at their Van Woustraat store which also encompasses a bar, restaurants and barbershop.
