Amsterdam based brand Donsje (Dutch for fluffy) creates a beautiful range of adorable footwear for babies along with sweet and stylish accessories for kids of all ages. Exclusively designed with a nostalgic twist, each product has the cute factor and is lovingly handmade by Artisans in Indonesia from premium leather.
Donsje was founded by Florentine van Oosten Slingeland in 2013. When she couldn’t find the perfect shoe for her baby daughter, Florentine decided to make her own. Donsje’s signature style reflects Florentine’s love of vintage fashion, subtle powder shaded and high quality leather.
Corporate responsibility is hugely important for Donsje. The brand set up their own dedicated factory in Indonesia with a work force of local artisans who create all the products by hand. Donsje adheres strictly to fair trade regulations and donates a part of its profits to the Shining Star foundation, which helps to give children in Nairobi, Kenya a better start in life.
