Trendy fanny packs and tote bags made from residues
Dom Amsterdam is a young brand that stands for sustainable and ethical production processes. Dom is run by Zheng Ou and Diede Gardenier, two Amsterdammers that want to sell fashion with a story and a positive impact on the world.
Dom Amsterdam’s sustainable fanny packs and tote bags are all Limited Editions made only with deadstock fabric, sourced in the Netherlands, that would otherwise go to waste. Most of the bags are actually made out of vintage curtains, but you can also provide your own piece of fabric and they will sew it into a trendy fanny pack or tote bag.
Dom have set up their production in Amsterdam in partnership with Mohammed and Abdul – 2 skilled tailors who arrived in Amsterdam as refugees. Dom have helped them restart their atelier business in Amsterdam, after they left their business in Syria. Mohammed and Abdul use their combined 50 years of tailoring expertise to produce all of Dom’s bags, and if your bags need any repairs they’ll take care of that too. Want to know more?
