Back to Quality

Why do we use up our products so fast and then just throw them away? Our consumer society has gotten used to temporary and soulless products. The biggest threat to our goods is no longer direct competition from higher quality elsewhere. The real threat is cheap mass production. That is such a unnecessary shame. Clothes have become disposable goods. Often made under terrible conditions, with cheap materials and under unethical circumstances. Goods that used to be made of wood, steel or leather are now made out of plastic.

We like to think differently

We believe there is plenty of space for things and clothes made with care and craftsmanship. High-quality clothing from high-quality materials that effect people and environment as little as possible. Clothing that outlives 'Fast Fashion' and does not fall apart before you can get to love it. How about bicycle pumps made of steel with a gorgeous wooden handle instead of all that plastic? We like to think differently and set the standard of quality.

Manufacturers

At Concrete Matter we work with manufacturers who believe in the same ideals as we do: matching timeless design with fantastic materials all at a fair price. Based on this shared vision we seek out new manufacturers to improve and expand our collection and vision. Our quality check is simple: every time you hold or wear a product it simply must feel good..

Iconic Pieces

Meaning no trendy throwaway items but real iconic pieces. Clothing with a story. The story of individuals and their materials but also the stories of buyers. Backpacks with years of traveling experience. Denim shirts coming to life exactly because of wear and tear. Shoes and belts showing depth and color after many polishes. Handmade flasks or pocket knives that look brand new after a good old sharpening. 

Slowly but surely we are expanding our collection, never participating in any sales (timeless products go beyond seasonal whims), and always trying our best to offer reasonable prices. Besides that we are always on the lookout for unique pieces too. Vintage garments with an impressive look or decorative 'mantiques' to spice up any interior. Products that you do not thrown away. Products that you hold on to, cherish and bond with. 

We are looking forward to seeing you in one of our stores to tell you more about our products.
