For almost a hundred years, De Ploeg has been designing, developing and producing curtain and upholstery fabrics — with a distinct approach to design and to the world around us. During the development phase, De Ploeg carefully considers the timelessness of the design, the use of natural materials and the environmental aspects of the fabrics.
In 2013 De Ploeg and koda amsterdam presented a collection of home and fashion accessories at Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, made of the cut waste of upholstery fabrics. This event marks the start of an intense collaboration resulting in many products that reflect the shared values of timeless design and true craftsmanship.

Luxaflex® and koda amsterdam recycle scrap fabrics into stylish bags, creating work opportunities and supporting the environment by reusing materials.
For more than 130 years, Auping has been designing and making beds in Deventer. Every single bed and mattress is made to order with care and attention to detail, the environment and the future. Auping dreams of a sustainable world in which everything is reused. Auping developed the world’s first fully circular mattress.The first result of the collaboration between koda amsterdam and Auping is the ZACHT quilted bag. The different layers of leftover fabrics and padding are stitched at the Royal Auping production facility in Deventer. The bag is then put together by the skilled hands of the Pantar team in Amsterdam.
In 1981 a couple of Dutch pioneers invented the Karsten Tent, a revolutionary tent with a unique inflation system. A new way of carefree camping was born. Only the best materials are good enough for these exceptional tents. The 100% Ten Cate cotton canvas means that each handmade tent is extremely storm-resistant and rainproof.
Karsten collects the cut waste of this canvas for koda amsterdam to make sure it’s given a new purpose in today’s circular world.
