Working together for a new future

De Ploeg wants to contribute to sustainable and positive change. Because as a curtain and upholstery fabrics brand, we can also play a role in making our lifestyle more sustainable. Without compromising on style and quality. We start with ourselves, but we cannot and will not do it alone. So get inspired and join us in building a green future.

Love of craftmanship

A sustainable lifestyle starts with yourself. That is why we work in an environmentally responsible manner within our organization and beyond. This is how Plankstaal came across us last year and this meeting resulted in a sustainable collaboration. De Ploeg was looking for alternative sales channels for its semi-finished furniture and curtain fabrics. The sympathetic philosophy of Plankstaal which lies in the mix of creating sales with a social underlying purpose, giving people a chance to develop themselves and a love of craftsmanship; these thoughts are in line with De Ploeg’s philosophy of putting people first.

With attention to each other

Plankstaal offers a special collection of minimalist furniture made with love by a special group of people. Plankstaal developed a learning method with clear construction instructions consisting of six steps. Through this learning method, participants learn welding and woodworking, broadening their horizons. The furniture is cast in a simple yet sleek construction of planks and steel. An interaction between steel and planks and between creator and creators. The collection is: clear, straightforward, without fuss. But more importantly: made with enormous love and passion for craftsmanship. Plank Steel was born from the hands of Mira Nasruddin (b. 1992). She didn’t just want to make an end product. She wanted to give the makers behind a product a stage. People for whom this stage is too often missing.

De Ploeg & Plankstaal results in swirl & carry

Style your home with ‘The Whirl’ cushions. Comfortable pillows made of the best quality Dutch virgin wool in white & black. The virgin wool is pure, soft and has a casual, natural look. The fabric used is a distinct De Ploeg quality from several years ago. A robust quality, pure and traditionally stitched of high quality.

 

‘Wearable’ is about more than just a bag. It is simple, functional & stylish. Made together. From flared fabrics because waste, we don’t do that. And simply, by hand the way you’re supposed to make a bag. With love and attention to detail. And that’s what makes it such a great collaboration. Because the makers of De Ploeg also work with love and attention on their collections.
