Sukha, a Joy of life

Sukha means ‘joy of life’ in Sanskrit. And that is exactly what we are about. Sukha is a place where beautiful things are conceived, developed and created. We stand for sustainable production and take great care in selecting unique items that are handmade from natural materials and are often locally designed. Everything we do is done with a great deal of attention and consideration, always with a twinkle in our eye and, above all, joy of life. Continue Reading →

Sukha Newspaper

Sukha means “Joy of Life’ in Sanskrit and that is what you will sense in all of Atelier Sukha’s products.
All made out of pure, and natural materials like wood, wool, lokta, linen, cotton and cashmere. Behind these wonderful products there is an even better story. Founders Irene Mertens and Sam IJsbrandy, both designers, travelled to the poorest regions in India and Nepal where they jointly developed the Atelier Sukha product line-up with local communities. Their visits were an instant success with many small handicraft companies now making blankets, cushions, hats, pants, scarfs, mittens, garlands but also special one off items such as a hand braided hammock.

A journey

Hello you!

The last few months have been a very creative and inspiring time at Atelier Sukha. Many idea’s made it to actual product designs that have been given to crafts(wo)men all over the world to make sure our new creations will ooze the joy and quality that is unique for Sukha.

The Sukha Shopper “Lisa” will be produced in India and our designs for pottery went straight to Nepal. More recently we discovered another continent with fantastic materials and craftsmanship, South America. So we are currently developing super comfy woollen items in Peru and Bolivia, but more about that this winter! Not all our products come from faraway though, our postcards, screen prints and the chestnut wooden benches are all made in The Netherlands. But what all Atelier Sukha products have in common is that they are produced in a socially responsible manner, by small businesses that are affiliated with the World Fair Trade Organization or NGO’s that support social responsible entrepreneurship.
