Meet the Store: Concrete Matter in Amsterdam

Concrete Matter store began as a collaborative effort between Tim, Tomas and Jacob. All three young, creative guys from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It started in 2012 when they decided to start an online store where they could share their passion about durable and authentic products. In the meantime they opened two physical stores in the city centre of Amsterdam next to their still running online store. Concrete Matter’s range of products includes knives, vintage globes, vintage maps, shoe care products, outdoor gear, cufflinks, tools, DIY kits, lithography, personal care products and a range of compelling curiosities.

Concrete Matter partnered-up with brands which are sharing the same philosophy as the store owners; timeless, high-quality made products that stands a long time. So no mass production or cheap throw-away items. A few of the exclusive brands are; Pike Brothers, Opinel knives, Stance socks, Atelier de l’Armée bagsHeritage Post magazine, Harry Damson, Field Notes, Reuzel pomade, Timex watches, Merz b. Schwanen, Hestra leather gloves, Gestalten books and many more…The store also carry a fine selection of rare and original old army jackets and pants.

When you’re in Amsterdam, go check out this store as its like a candy store for people which honor heritage brands and goods. Highly recommend!
