"the only social lifestyle brand
The brand Amsterdam Locals
The brand name was born after a number of happenings, which is described below
While sitting on a terrace in Amsterdam and watching the several bikes crossing by with fully loaded bags, we got the idea to produce bike panners made from used inner tubes. With this upcycle, the waste of the bike comes back to the bike on a clever way.
During traveling I visited big cities, with the new life-style brand idea in my head, I continuous got the standard question; ‘where are you from’? In some countries people don’t know the Netherlands, however everyone know AMSTERDAM. When I explained them my home city is 1 hour and 20 minutes away from Amsterdam centre, they replied with: ‘I travel daily more than one hour to my work’. We had to laugh about this, for those people I was an ‘Amsterdam Local’.
Seeing several family members, friends and relatives suffering and dying from cancer, I decided I had to do something. I didn’t want to watch and see 1 in 4 people getting the disease and unfortunately still 60% of them not surviving. Our goal is financially supporting the research to cancer, and get the rid with it! After hearing stories from people who stayed often in Amsterdam for cancer treatment that they felt like a Local. Then I knew exactly what the name of the new social life-style brand would be. All ideas came together with Amsterdam, in Amsterdam.
