Fancy giving an ordinary bit of clothing some extra style, or giving a jacket a whole new look? At Knopenwinkel, you’ll find just the unusual buttons you need.


Fashion accessory


With more than 8,000 different types in stock, Knopenwinkel clearly shows that, far from just being banal fastening mechanisms, buttons are a vital fashion accessory that lend personality to items of clothing. Whatever style I’m after, I always manage to find it here. They have wonderful little sailing boats, roses with black braiding for the “Gothic” clothing my teenager likes to wear, and sparkling coloured buttons for brightening up a summer dress. They even have vintage buttons from the ‘60s!

Buttons in all their various guises


Take your item of clothing along with you. Théa, the owner, will suggest just the right one for turning it into a unique creation. She’s a real expert (and supplies some of Holland’s biggest names in fashion design), and is constantly bringing back the wackiest new finds from all over the world, made from wood, glass, animal horn, mother-of-pearl, enamelled coconut and more. There’s something for everyone and for every budget!


Laurence, 46 a cool mum

I’m the mother of two supercharged children. I’ve also been living a great love affair with Holland for the past 20 years! I’ll take you to places in Amsterdam that will make you feel good, where the products and the welcome are high quality and where, most importantly, you’ll never stress out. Ready to go?
