All Things We Like brings you playful design that has a positive impact on your mood but minimal impact on the environment. Our unique Dutch Eco-Designs are beautiful both on the outside and inside!
With our label we like to inspire you to make eco-friendly and fun choices. For our sustainable collections we experiment with the combination of innovative solutions and traditional techniques. If an item can’t be sustainably and ethically produced, we simply won’t . Needless to say we also prefer to work with honest materials. The wood we use is FSC certified or recycled. Our posters are printed on biological paper and our bags made of ecological cotton. That’s how much we value fair and honest design. We love to create beautiful and functional designs for your everyday life and home. Our collection ranges from lasercut and 3D-printed jewelry, wooden decorative objects, illustrated porcelain tableware handprinted cards and posters… well, as our name already says: all things we like!
We believe in the power of creativity and design to help transform society. We use the impact of design for the social good. We don’t sell out on our planet and human rights. Caring for the environment is as important for us as caring for the people behind our products. For the production of our collections we collaborate with local artisans and social workplaces, who are so proud to deliver you the best quality while making sure our designs do contribute to a better world. Real product by real people.
Some examples of who you support with our designs: the social workplace with people in the autistic spectrum who very precisely decorate the ceramics, the traditional porcelain family business who’ve been making porcelain for centuries, refugee tailors in our sewing workshop, the woodworkers workplace with physical disabilities who got a special machine to make our wooden frames, the workplace with people with downsyndrome who pack every piece of jewelry with the greatest care. We have an ever growing network, if you are interested in working with us, you can contact us.
All Things We Like items are designed in our studio in the beautiful city of Utrecht, in the center of Holland. Before an item leaves the studio, it’s polished, assembled and finished by hand. This ensures that every single piece is made with love and dedication.
Ever since we started All Things We Like it has been a great success. When the first small collection of wooden lasercut necklaces was released in 2011, media picked up on it and it sold out almost immediately. Now our collections are sold in designstores and musea throughout the world.
All Things We Like is run by designer and founder Janneke van der Heijden from the studio in Utrecht. Here, in the creative factory ‘Vechtclub XL’ the studio is surrounded by inspiring, talented businesses and designers. In this creative hotspot you can find, next to the studio and showroom, an organic restaurant, ceramic atelier, plant store, organic bakery and even a brewpub. Come by and be inspired!
