WHAT WE DO
It all started in 2012. Petra & Sanne loved to stroll through thrift-stores together to collect unique clothing & interior items. As a joke, their friends often suggested they should open a small pop-up store to sell all those awesome pieces they collected. And one day, they figured why not? When they made a public Facebook event for the opening they were really excited to see how many people were interested. Their first pop-up store event at Bloemenbar was such a success, that it didn't take long before they organized their second pop-up store event.
After organizing many pop-up events, their next step was a store. And this was the moment when the first concept store of Things I Like Things I Love was born. First only selling second hand items, but as time went on they collected more and more things they like and love.
In 2017 Bas joined the team, doing all the things Sanne & Petra hadn't had any time for (or weren't so good at.. but let's stay nice). Now they work hard to pursue the same goal, better together. Today, Things I Like Things I Love has grown into a known clothing brand with multiple concept stores, selling points and an online store. This was all made possible thanks to our awesome team full of young and passionate creatives.

HOW IT STARTED
The factory started its first facility in the heart of Bangkok and will expand it in 2024 with another production facility near Bangkok, they are still waiting to make the big step because of COVID-19. What's most interesting is that you will find the factories in a place you'd never expect. Their first facility is located in a suburban area surrounded by houses. The family lives above the factory across the street. The facility is filled with good vibes, experienced craftmanship and joy. We are so blessed with our extra Thai family, they couldn't make us prouder.
