Sukha, a Joy of life

Sukha Amsterdam is a cosy warehouse in the centre of Amsterdam and well known for her eco-friendly mindset. Practically all the items we sell have a sustainable background, are Dutch designed or produced and all carefully selected.

Sukha has an outspoken preference for handcraft, unique items and labels. Most products are created in small quantities some of which are produced by the Atelier Sukha label. Visiting the Sukha store is a wonderful experience with one-off poems and doodles that put a smile on your face.
Sukha means ‘joy of life’ in Sanskrit, the language of the Buddhist monks in India and Nepal. Sukha simply is, a bundle of joy! :-)
