Who is ModaCulture?
IN MY WORDS... THE BAD ASS BRAND WE HAVE ALL BEEN SEARCHING FOR!

THEIR STORY . . .
It all started with a question.
At a party in NYC, a stranger approached ModaCulture founder, Meindert Kooistra, with the simple question, “Where’d you buy those shoes?” When he answered, “Amsterdam,” his hometown, he knew there had to be an easier way to buy European fashion in the US than muddling around on the Internet or flying across the Atlantic.
Now there is an easier way: ModaCulture. A company dedicated to helping you find the European brands and styles that fit with your own personal narrative.
As we have pieced together our story, we’ve become friend with the owners of the companies we feature. They’re just like us, people providing answers to questions—Where can I buy shoes that look timeless and wear forever? Can a handbag hold everything I need for the day and be manufactured in a place I would like to work in? Why can’t I find jeans that fit perfectly?
Their stories, like ours, started with a question, but there are no questions about how their products are made.
Eighty-five percent of the items featured on ModaCulture are made in Europe, honoring the Europe’s tradition of high quality and attention to detail. The remaining 15% is manufactured in places throughout Asia and Africa that meet the international Fair Wear Foundation’s Code of Labour Practices. This means every item you see on ModaCulture is made by an adult worker who is paid a living wage, works in a safe and healthy environment, and takes pride in making beautiful, high-quality products.
We look forward to telling you more stories about our friends—the companies’ founders, designers, and creators. And of course, we’ll tell the stories of their biggest fans.
Now we’ll finish the unsaid part of our story. The part Meindert didn’t say that night at the party. He bought his shoes in Amsterdam from Greve, a Dutch shoe company founded in 1898, located in a 500-year-old building, from a sales assistant named Femke, to the sound of bicycle bells and canal boats in the background.
Welcome to our story. We look forward to being part of yours.
