..WITH LOVE FROM THE NORDICS
The Handy Cow is one of our favorites @northboundstore. A candy like wrist clutch to accompany you to any place, any time!
And we just love the baggies by Karianne Saether, a lovely bag-designer from Oslo, Norway. Her brand name: MOO... Her story is honest and beautiful, just as her designs. Her quest was to design stunning bags to last you a lifetime. The leather had to be of the best quality and more important...with a good and happy story. The cows had to have had good conditions and a life story.
Karianne works together with a family business just outside of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Awesome leather, great crafmenship and the best accessories. In the meantime the search goes on to get the best leather production, also closer to home. She is active just outside Istanbul and currently investigating the Spanish leather market.
We will sell more bags in our concept store this Fall and Winter. We will try to put some online, but they're exclusive...so if you have the chance, come and feel, smell and try them in our store! You can find us next to the Train Station in The Hague (NL).
What a great choice by Marie-Claire (NL)! They love our webshop and had this small space to fill up, with one item...and they chose the Enamel Curve Ring by Louise Kragh Jewelry from Arhus in Denmark! And it looks awesome!!
Wanna find out more about the ring? Don't hesitate to check it out here! It's a stunning but still refined ring, adjustable in size and made of gold plated silver.
Enjoy your Summer!
A pearl is something you can't and shouldn't resist this Summer! They're such elegant pieces to give that extra shine to your Summer outfit. A subtle but catchy shine. We love it. And so did two of our favorite Danish Jewelry designers.
Check out Pernille Corydon's Southern Sea collection:
And Louise Kragh's pearl collection.
Of course there's so much more in their collections that will make you shine this Summer, but just keep in mind...The girl with the Pearl Earring...wrote history...!
Just a year after settling up our concept store in New Babylon Shopping Center, we opened a second northbound store!! This time, our focus is on Interior Design!
Lots of cooooool stuff for in your home, kitchen to bathroom...! We have wonderful new designs by Menu, Denmark. And, we keep our best sellers of Addinterior (Denmark), KORBO (Sweden), Northern Lighting (Norway) and LindDNA (Denmark).
Just follow us on Facebook to see what's NEW, COMING or GOING!
Yes...why not! They're perfect for the Summer showers and those muddy festival puddles or slippery sidewalks.
And, after a 'sold-out' we've re-ordered some LAST PAIRS!! Check 'm out on this webshop!
These funky rain boots are designed by the Swedish Finnish shoe designer Julia Lundsten and made by the traditional Finnish rubber boot brand Nokian. A great high-quality fashion statement. At the festival, you'll be ultimately prepared for all weather types...and, more importantly, you'll look awesome!
Julia Lundsten is based in London and runs the high end shoe label FINSK shoes. She won the Manolo Blahnik award and her shoes are worn by Lady Gaga and Rihanna. By working together with the traditional Finnish rubber boot makers (who have done so for over a century) she is able to combine her progressive shoe design with true craftsmanship! And the result is a practical, fun and very trendy boot that withstands all kinds of weather...let's go outside!
At northbound store we've been selling The Baand's organic Tee's and winter knits since our opening, last year...! The cotton is absolutely of the highest quality! Soft and strong! The knits...of baby Alpaca wool...are amazing, so soft.
Let us tell you a bit more about the philosophy behind this awesome Danish brand, The Baand.
The Baand was founded in 2009 by Designer, Julie Villumsen & Textile Purchaser, Stine Bauer Boskov. Both had been working in fashion for a while, but it was not until a trip to Lima that they had ever felt such a fantastic softness and high quality of cotton.
And there came the idea of real fair fashion basics. Those favorite pieces in your wardrobe that always save the day and make you look your best!
That's why The Baand started to call their shirts, cardigans, pants, skirts...their Everyday Heroes!
The Baand is deadly serious and dedicated to a perfect fit, unique craftsmanship and attention to every detail. Furthermore, they don't like the idea of consuming without thinking. Don´t like to throw things away. That's why The Baand decided to create clothes that stand the test of time, and just get better and better the more you wear them!
The Peruvian organic cotton that they use in their products, is among the world´s absolute finest. The quality is amazing. The fibers are extremely long and therefore super soft and strong at the same time. Which basically means, that their clothes last for years and really can become true favorites in your wardrobe.
In Peru, just outside Lima, The Baand has the Tee's produced in a small factory where they also produce in a fair way! No waste of fabrics, vegetable dye to color the fabrics and no child labor. This is what The Baand shared on their Facebook, just before traveling to Lima this month.
"These 6 girls are the ones who have sewn our SS14 garments in Lima. They used to be homeless but now they all live across the street from the workshop who has given them a job and taught them how to sew! The girl in the striped tee is Ruth, the girl in black is Carmen - we are going to meet them in April when we travel to Peru!"
Since 2014, The Baand also has Tee's produced in a small factory in Portugal. Also of great 100% organic cotton or beautiful soft 100% linen.

Last but not least, spotted on Dutch Television, presenter Froukje de Both wearing The Baand's "Ganesa" oversize T-shirt in vintage washed color "porto stella"! (click here to see the shirt in our webshop!)
Last year we started selling some first pieces of the exclusive Danish knitwear brand, Iben Høj. I met designer Iben Høj during the Summer Fashion Fair in Copenhagen, and she was without a doubt the most unique and authentic designer at the Fair. Awesome knitted pieces, not many (but stunning!), were displayed at her simple yet most elegant stand. It was love at first sight.
And, since I've had her designs in the shop, it's not the most easiest collection to sell, but...when someone falls in love with the refined design and the fine texture of the exclusive pieces...it's irresistible. And, I love selling it. Someone takes home a super exclusive and authentic piece. And yes, designed and made with LOTS of love from the nordics.
Just to get you better acquainted with Iben, click here for her story and the stunning pieces we sell in the webshop. Of course you are also welcome in our concept store in The Hague (NL), if you happen to be in the neighborhood...:)
