Founded in 2013, our webshop only collects those products of which I think would look great in my life, would be played with by my kids or would be a perfect present for friends and family.
The quest for these products take me everywhere. From Argentina to Japan, from South Africa to Germany and back to Belgium, where I am located.
Not all products are created equal!
I have divided the shop into 2 segments. One segment consists of the products mentioned above. The main focus here is to find and offer you products with a story, a background and history to tell. Products that are already around for some time or are simply built to last. All of these are handpicked and curated by myzelf and every single one of them have ticked at least 3 of the 5 boxes: Simple, Honest, Attitude, Durable, Eco. As we would like to call it, our SHADE-manifesto.
The other segment consists of collaborations with upcoming and well-established designers and artists. By not only selling some of their works, but most importantly introducing them to a larger group of people is my main goal here. I feel that more and more people are looking for something different, something with (again) a story behind it. As the story behind the product is as important as the product itself.
It shows that my approach is not only about selling my finds to you but also sharing its value and heritage. Therefor you can find extra background information of the products, collaborations with designers or just need-to-know random topics in my online magazine Ekstur Lecture.
I aim to please and will do everything I can to provide you with a pleasant online shopping experience. Should there however still be anything I can add to my service or do you have any comments or interesting products for me to explore, please let me know.
