The idea to create Dutch Basics was born out of Doris Pires' passion for beautiful materials and design. Interested in various social, environmental causes, the brand has a strong ethical conscience. All pieces are produced in Portugal with small ateliers and factories where the workers are treated and paid fairly. Doris also chooses to use materials which are made with environmental care, like recycled leather, leather with no or very little chrome. The brands aesthetic is classic pieces with a modern twist, clean yet eye catching design and long lasting materials with a minimal aesthetic.
