TRIED & TESTED
Concept store with a focus on stillness and sustainability
31 March 2021
Last week I went to Zutphen to make a review of this new sustainable concept store and a lovely tiny house on the country side of Overijssel. While we’re there: let’s see what caught my eye during a walk in Zutphen!
Zutphen is one of the oldest towns of The Netherlands. Pictured you’ll see the Sint-Walburgiskerk. The oldest part of this church dates back to the 11th century.
Next to the church you’ll find the former townhouse with these amazing doors and the surrounding sculptures with on top ‘Het Wapen van Zutphen’. The blue color is common in this part of the country – they even call it Zutphen’s blauw (blue).
Left and right of the main streets you’ll find lovely side streets that bring you back in time. I took the Heukenstraat, Barlheze and Spiegelstraat.
Zutphen has many hidden ‘hofjes’. Such as Luthers Hofje, and also het Agnietenhofje (pictured). From 1397 women who wanted to devote their life to God lived there.
Walk back towards the Houstraat and stop by at this beautiful store for sustainable interior and fashion items.
Take the Rodetorenstraat back to the Sint-Walburgiskerk.
