How lucky I am that one of my favorite designers is also my neighbour?! I’m very happy to introduce Hilde Tempelman – the super talented designer behind the ATELIER TEMPEL. Amsterdams smallest department store! (what a great name is that!). Hilde is designing accessories, handcrafted bags, scarves, bijoux, paper goods, dolls, pillow covers an other home decorations- all hand-made by her! Hilde is re-using vintage fabrics to create bags and accessories. I love her work. It’s full with imagination, originality, sense of humor and with her amazing twist on everything she makes. A visit to the atelier/shop is a visit to a true magical place and a great opportunity to meet the wonderful Hilde in person 🙂 For more exciting things to see in Amsterdam check this guide.
