I regularly squeeze my arm to check if it is all real. Five years ago I started the adventure with Ocean Sole together with my brother, and what a! What we initially wanted to do in the evenings as a hobby has now become my full-time job.
Working on The Art of Upcycling on a daily basis gives a lot of energy and challenge. One day I am busy updating the webshop or testing an old punching machine, the next day I am standing in front of two hundred dignitaries and I tell the story of Nic & Mic!
We have now become so 'intertwined' with local artists & craftsmen that new designs are partly made by us in the Netherlands. Then they passionately transform them into slipper sculptures or other cool stuff !
