Vakvrouwen is a collective of four independently enterprising women specialized in designing and making custom furniture. It has a rich history of 40 years with a workshop in Amsterdam’s Spaarndammerbuurt. The four women from various woodworking backgrounds share their designs and experience of being a female professional during the duration of GLUE. We stand for creativity, professionalism and personalisation while using sustainable materials and practices, all in the heart of Amsterdam West.


We welcome you into our space where we will show you some of our designs, as well as take you on an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of our workshop. We will talk about what it takes to translate the customer's wishes into a personal design; be it a unique, handmade piece of furniture or a complete (re) furnishing of their space.
