SIMPLY SLOW is a growing community embracing the art of authentic crafts. We want to inspire people to discover how unique everyday products are and seek the story behind them. Brew a coffee, carving wood or baking sourdough bread: each of these authentic crafts is very common. Their simplicity makes them naturally unique. On your lazy Sunday afternoon our MAKERS will indulge you with their unique craft.
Once per month SIMPLY SLOW organizes a GET TOGETHER. Our MAKERS will create a memorable experience by presenting their craft to your senses. You will feel, smell, taste and learn about their passionate work. A GET TOGETHER will offer a unique lazy Sunday. Come curious, feel connected, leave cheerfully and let it be a rumor.

lies in wait for you in foreign, unprocessed places.”
