Amsterdam: Best Vegan Retail

Amsterdam: best vegan retail

Amsterdam is like a fairy tale city- cobblestone streets, bridges that arch over the gentle canals bustling with a never-ending stream of passenger boats, and row upon rows of canal houses, straight out of Hans Christian Andersen’s imagination. This city full of charm, history, and oh so many bicycles ended up totally stealing the show.

Amsterdam is a city where a vegan can quickly find themselves comfortable. There are many vegan-friendly restaurants and retail stores in the city center as well as the outskirts.

GeitenWollenWinkel

Have you spotted the on Utrechtsestraat in Amsterdam? A concept store where everything that is for sale is sustainable. And the fact that sustainability is no longer just for goat wool socks types is clear from the Goat Wool Store.

All lifestyle and fashion products at the GeitenWollenWinkel are sustainable and in many cases even vegan. In addition to a beautifully curated collection, the entire collection of GeitenWollenShirts is also sold in the store. In addition to GeitenWollenShirts, the store also offers various other brands including REAL FAKE, Groceries Apparel, L’Herbe Rouge, ARMEDANGELS and Oat Shoes.

Vega Life

Vega-Life offers unique lifestyle products for vegetarians and vegans. It is 100% vegan store in Amsterdam where you can find a unique assortment of shoes, belts, bags, vegan cookbooks, cosmetics and fair trade lifestyle products, such as organic cotton and bamboo clothing.

They offer sustainable and fashionable products, made without animal suffering or cruelty, with the environmentally conscious and compassionate consumer in mind.

A large range of their products can be found on their online store, and they have plans to expand on the current online selection in the near future. It is located in the city center at a short 15 minutes walk from Central Station. The staff can help you find nice places for a vegan lunch or dinner.

Noumenon

Noumenon, a Dutch brand whose cradle is located in Amsterdam, was founded in 2016 by Dena Simae. Starting from the idea of combining aesthetics and ethics, the brand is 100% vegan, approved by PETA, and respectful of the environment.

Inspired by the noumenal world of the philosopher Kant, Dena wants to create a cruelty-free fashion that is ethically produced and sophisticated. The clothes are timeless, composed of a conscious woman who wants to feel beautiful and comfortable, from the inside as from the outside.

For Dena, design and quality are the keys. She believes that fashion is even more beautiful when it is created ethically and humanely. It is therefore not surprising that it uses mainly natural fabrics for its collections, such as flax, organic cotton, copper and Tencel (recycled wood pulp), but the House also works with innovative recycled fabrics and gives a New life with excess tissue.

Each fabric and garment originates in Europe in order to reduce CO2 as much as possible. In addition, the ink used for printing is ecological. In addition, the brand labels are made from recycled cotton and the labels are made of recycled paper. Quickly, the brand made a name for itself in the slow fashion industry to become a pioneer in fashion.

There are many other places that are popping up around the city. Check out the restaurants too. Places like Hearth and Better & Leuk have little retail stores in their restaurant or cafe. You can find clothes, crockery and all sorts of bits and bobs that have been ethically sourced and made.
