The 70s in Amsterdam
Sticks and Stones started in the late seventies as a young and vintage leather brand in Amsterdam, showcasing its designs on the famous 'Waterlooplein' market in the city center of Amsterdam.
In those days the Waterlooplein was the fashion center of Amsterdam and beyond, where you could find many young designers and fashion innovations right there. Even well-known international designers came there to get inspired.
First leather brand to make colorful collections
It was well into the 80s and 90s that leather jackets and bags were black and brown only, which inspired Sticks and Stones to become the first leather brand to make colorful leather collections.
From there Sticks and Stones developed as a brand, moved to the World Fashion Centre in Amsterdam, and became an international leather fashion brand.
