We are a creative platform for social inclusion.
At our Amsterdam studio we design and produce sustainable products with a story. What began as a newcomer lead co-creation to up-cycle waste life-vests into conscious products has grown into a vast talent pool of newcomers and locals around The Netherlands. Read more.

Makers Unite Products
Once life-vests used during migrant travel, this collection of travel accessories is hand-made by newcomers with refugee backgrounds in Amsterdam, in the process empowering other newcomers towards employment and granting the fabric a new identity as an ongoing symbol of hope.
Our Talent Pool of Creatives
Newcomers should have the opportunity to continue their creative career paths in The Netherlands. We give them the platform, projects and networks to do so.
