Studio Ode pays tribute to nature, simplicity, craft and makers all over the world.
We consciously choose natural materials, sustainable products and close collaborations with our makers.
The objects, workshops and designers that we include in our collections are always created with intention and each tell a strong, unique story.
In 2018 (oh gosh, that's been a while) I (Nele) started Studio Ode. My intention was simple: I wanted to start my own webshop where handicraft is central. A business that can grow with who I am and what I like to do.
And that is exactly what Studio Ode still is today. I try, fall on my snout, learn and try to do things differently. Studio Ode tries, falls on her snout, stands up again and learns something from it.
Zo opened Ode this year, together with three other entrepreneurs from Mechelen, KoKo.kollektief. A sustainable concept store in our home town Mechelen. In addition to our handicrafts, we also have houseplant creations from KikT., vintage furniture from Ola Pola and first choice second-hand clothing from Better Than Chocolate.
All very exciting, educational and challenging. But above all so incredibly beautiful.
That's why I hope you can enjoy every bit of Ode as I do.

Ps. You will notice that when you read the texts and descriptions you regularly come across the word 'we'. That in itself describes me very well. Why? Well, actually there isn't really a 'we'. With zodiac sign Gemini it is often a very busy place in my head which makes me feel much more comfortable when the 'I' becomes a 'we'.
