Home to some of the most respected designers in Europe, Amsterdam has a thriving fashion scene that is also well-represented by its great small, independent boutiques. Here are some of the must-visit destinations for smart, ethical shopping in the city.


Situated along the fashionable Van Der Helststraat in Downtown, this eclectic boutique features an in-house café and restaurant, exhibitions from local artists, and a carefully selected range of fashionable clothing, accessories and household items. Cottoncake is committed to the most progressive approaches to retail and food and their café specializes in organic, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free cuisine.

Fair + Fair

For a well-made stock of sustainable and ethically traded merchandise, Fair + Fair is the place to go. They invest all all of their profits into housing for its producers, so post-purchase you feel lighter knowing you have not enriched the endless pockets of big business, but distributed much needed currency into distant markets, and maybe improved lives.

This eco-friendly boutique along the Heiligeweg is devoted to ethical retail and buying practices, carrying a range of organic, Fair Trade, recycled and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) products, from household items to clothing. They specialize in clothing made from hemp, a versatile plant that makes durable clothing with far less environmental impact than traditional cotton, with the same comfort and fashion benefits.

Showcasing a quality line of men and women’s brands for clothing and accessories, Ennu promotes designs from the latest fashions geared towards Amsterdam’s youth. Carrying popular high-end brands such as Rick Owens to Balmain, and including an excellent selection of accessories too, the stock may be described most aptly as a compromise between haute couture and elements of a more gothic fashion.
