Family of Things

In the 1980s, Amsterdam offered a fantastic range of subcultures. The freedom and liberal disorder of the era inspired Erik Pol, Jan Wolleswinkel and Theo Grootendorst to not only open a shop, but somewhat later; also develop a fanciful label. Nowadays, thirty years later, Pols Potten is an international brand that continues to reinvent itself.

Family of Things

WOTH was commissioned by Pols Potten to compile their jubilee brand book; writing, art direction and prepare it for publication in 2016 by Pols Potten published by publisher Aerial Media Company.
