WE AIM TO MAKE CLOTHING PERSONAL
created by craftsmen – former refugees – in the atelier in Amsterdam
Our tailors are former refugees, newcomers, from Syria and are professionals in creating clothing. They have gained experience from their previous years and recently arrived in the Netherlands. Having a job is essential in building up a new life in a new society. At Atelier PHI our craftsmen are able to work in their passion and profession, practice their Dutch language and get to know locals. Hereby PHI gives them hope, empowerment and independence in building a new future in the Netherlands.
Atelier PHI was founded by Philine van Zinnicq Bergmann as she felt that the fashion industry was ready for taking sustainable fashion to the next level. The origin of Atelier PHI goes back to the time Phi lived in China in 2013…
