Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the second Made by Hand guide by stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk. The first, Paris: Made by Hand, received an ecstatic reception around the world from magazines such as British House & Garden, Vogue Living, and Martha Stewart Living, and on dozens and dozens of design blogs from design*sponge to decor8. Amsterdam: Made by Hand takes readers to dozens of boutiques, studios, and workshops offering not only newly created items fashioned by hand, but also vintage objects and found objects that may have been reworked by a talented artist. Also included are shops providing exclusive European supplies if you want to make your own objects: fabric, vintage silk tassels, yarn, handmade buttons, flowers in feathers and silk, and more. Pia describes her book the best:

“As a stylist, I am always on the lookout for objects that are distinctive and alluring—which is why I adore all things handmade. Amsterdam: Made by Hand is an insiders guide where youll discover Dutch ateliers tucked away on the cobble stoned backstreets of the old canal district, and boutiques that Dutch designers and stylists have kept well-hidden inside their black books. . . until now. Between its pages you can expect to find woodworkers, flower artists, jewelry designers, dressmakers, ceramicists, and more: with the backdrop of Amsterdams beautiful canals and wonky buildings, you can expect to see this quaint old city in a whole new light.”

This is a book for all professional designers and decorators and lovers of design and decorating, lovers of all things handmade, the chic and unique, and of course Amsterdam.
