SVNRS Delft & Amsterdam
Comfortable slippers in the shape of wooden shoes: they travel all around the world from the SVNRS shops. The Netherlands is richly endowed when it comes to icons: windmills, bicycles, tulips, cheese, Delft blue and the Dutch masters, many foreigners can recite that list effortlessly. These strong and popular associations with our country can be easily translated into the most entertaining souvenirs, and year after year these funny items are big sellers. The SVNRS shops distinguish themselves from the average souvenir businesses with a more upscale setup. When we say upscale we obviously don’t mean a weed smoking Vincent van Gogh, but a strong, quality product range combined with a tasteful business interior. The SVNRS shop at the Dam in Amsterdam is a good example: wooden shoes attached to the wall there form a funny grid pattern. Altogether, it makes for a joyful experience while browsing among the trinkets.
