Meet .. Van Nature

“A better world is possible and we will start creating it”. That is the mission of the newest concept store we collaborate with: Van Nature. This super fun and surprisingly big concept store in Nijmegen was created by Rudie Wijnen and Jonny Arnoldi. They are supported by the great women Lidewij and Lisette together with a group of other team members.

When entering the store you are welcomed by the most amazing eco-fashion, great sustainable accessories and numerous biological must haves. Honestly, it’s a treat to walk around the store in search of all sorts of biological and fairtrade items.

That is exactly what Rudie and Jonny had in mind when the started to create a plan for their biological department store. They already owned a biological food store in Nijmegen but missed a place where you could go for your daily biological and fairtrade items. And so they opened Van Nature – their very own biological department store!

All the selected products are user-friendly, beautiful and affordable. But the most important requirement they need to meet is that the products should be environmentally friendly and fair trade produced.

Recently the eco-fairwear of our Little Rocks Designs is available in their store. We are of course thrilled that the team of Van Nature has selected these colourful, fun shirts as an addition to their existing collection.

The prints on the fairwear certified shirts are applied by silkscreen printing with eco-friendly paint. The designs are made by the graphic designer of the team, Petroula Krigkou, who gets her inspiration from all sorts of sailors. And it’s the manly moustaches of these sailors that made the team of Van Nature instantly fall in love with the shirts!
