"Hospitable design for every table” says director Neslihan Graumans about DU&MU. The new shop in the shopping gallery of Loods 6 in Amsterdam offers more than design porcelain, it is a place where everyone is welcome. You can drop by for a new plate set, for interior advice but also just for a good cappuccino with cake and a chat.
From Turkish soil to the Dutch clay. For years, Neslihan worked enthusiastically as a store manager in Amsterdam. But her ambition went further and many trips to her native soil were the inspiration for developing her own brand. She found her business partners there, visited local workshops and immersed herself in all aspects of production technology. Because durability and working conditions are just as important to Neslihan as exclusive design and quality. Besides imports from Turkey, exclusive brands from other countries will be added to the collection in the future. When a nice property became available on the KNSM-laan, Neslihan and her business partners decided to take the plunge.
Durable & Mud (DU&MU)
"Durable & Mud" form the basis for a unique collection of tableware. Offering durable and responsibly produced pottery, porcelain and glass, DU&MU has everything you need for a complete table setting. The collection includes porcelain, cutlery, table linen (hand-woven) and home and kitchen accessories designed exclusively for DU&MU. But the shop also sells other brands such as Porland, Esma Dereboy (handmade tableware) and Batta.
Mix & Match
The collection is versatile: from understated minimalism to opulent maximalism. With glaze tones ranging from bright colours and dew-fresh pastels to non-colours such as deep blacks, off whites and earth tones. Order a complete set or combine single items with an existing set. Combine textures and fabrics in different colours to create you own atmosphere.
A beautiful background completes a table setting. Take a contrasting colour as a base or stay in the same colour palette, choose interwoven patterns and subtle prints or go for plain. The natural fabrics of DU&MU's original tablecloths, table runners, napkins and placemats add a personal touch to any occasion. Whether you're hosting a casual barbecue, inviting the whole family over for lunch or having a romantic soirée with your partner.
