Dutch Design

Our regularly changing collection includes bags created by national and international up-and-coming designers, as well as well-known ones. Many featured designers exemplify the principles of ‘Dutch Design’: minimalistic, experimental, innovative, unconventional, and with a touch of humour.

Find handbags inspired by everything from geometry to architecture, and those that stay true to the most time-tested principles of handbag design.

Best museum shop in Amsterdam

In 2014, Dutch newspaper Het Parool called our museum shop ‘The Best in Amsterdam’, because of our varied selection of clutches, bags, gifts and more. But also for our knowledgeable, friendly staff, who are eager to help you find the bag of your dreams.
