About us

Concrete Matter, the Man’s Gift Co. began as a collaborative effort between Tim, Tomas and Jacob - three young, creative guys from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Bound together by our passion for useful, durable and beautiful products, we set up a small but comprehensive online store called Concrete Matter in early 2012.

Tim, an award winning graphic designer, took care of product photography and design. Jacob, a former FOAM curator, took care of curation and inventory. Tomas, an ambitious entrepreneur, took care of logistics and accounts.

Concrete Matter’s range of products now includes knives, vintage globes, vintage maps, shoe care products, taxidermy, outdoor gear, cufflinks, tools, DIY kits, lithography, personal care products and a range of compelling curiosities.

Curious and adventurous as we are, we’re always looking to expand on that. If it’s one of those rare items that successfully walks the line between beauty and durability, then we’re on it. Ultimately, that’s what we’re trying to achieve: we’ re trying to counteract a throw-away culture of anonymous mass production. Also, we believe durability and aesthetics are often a tightly knit couple.

Job Perks

Well for starters, you'll get free lunch everyday. Your monthly compensation will be comparable with other internships. You'll be working in a fun young team and have lots of freedom and responsibility, and therefore you'll be able to learn loads of new things. You'll be able to experiment and test various ways of communication and marketing.
