From idea to product

We are a product developer, designer, manufacturer and wholesaler, all in one. Our home base is an office and warehouse with a design studio and showroom in IJsselstein (in Utrecht). From this location, Handed By supplies a large number of shops in over 20 countries, even far beyond Europe.

Handed By design is recognisable by the unique trademark stamp in the form of a handprint. Everything we put our hands to is manufactured ethically and is guaranteed 100% free of child labour.


Our collections are developed in our design studio. We continually seek out trends in terms of lifestyle, home, children and the environment, and speak to clients about their needs. Our designers consider all ideas. That way, we create designs we evaluate critically in brainstorming sessions. Only the best ideas are developed in sketches and prototypes. The designs are mocked up during production and subjected to various tests. Subsequently, production commences and the product is introduced.

The Handed By products are giving used-plastics a second chance. We recycle industrial plastic waste into strap material, to create new Handed By bags and basket collections. Waste that would otherwise be thrown away and released into the environment with all its consequences. The plastic waste is used as a base granulate, the basic material for every product. By using the recycled plastic, we slow down the process of running out of natural resources of the earth.



Join our journey and help us to reduce the plastic waste. At this moment 85% of the entire Handed By collection is made out of recycled plastics. It is our ambition to have the entire collection made out of recycled plastics by the end of 2022. We can all contribute to this process by using recycled plastics in our daily lives. Help the environment and be creative yourself by finding new ways to reduce the use of plastics in general.
