About us

Please allow us to properly introduce ourselves: In 2015 T.I.T.S. was founded by Mathilde Kamphuis & Nathalie Zoeteweij.
“OMG TITS?!” You’ll ask whilst clutching your pearls in horror. Yes, TITS. It’s short for This Is The Shit. As our name illustrates, we aim to break sexist taboos. Think nipples, loud opinions, sexual appetite and other so- called “unladylike” things. We do so with a flirtatious wink, empowering everyone else who defies the norms, to express themselves candidly. Our physical store in Amsterdam, webshop and own brand provide a colourful wardrobe for an array of personalities.

COLLECTION

Our design process is very personal, combining thorough reflection with unplanned intuition. Our designs don’t conform to seasonal collections so we deliver in drops. This amps up the individuality and quality of our creations but also allows us to be spontaneous whenever we’re feeling funky.

SUSTAINABILITY

We’re focused on sourcing sustainable materials and means of production. We like to keep learning about all facets of sustainability. By doing so, we hope to inspire others, both wearers and creators, as we develop. But primarily, we want to show you how sustainability and fresh style are the coolest duo in town.

TITS JEWELLERY PRODUCTION

TITS values a sustainable world with sustainable products. With everything we produce we keep our impact on the environment into account. There are many aspects of sustainability, new innovations occur every day which we try to implement in our process. All of our jewels are produced in a factory in Thailand where sustainability is one of their core values. We only use conflict-free metals and stones and 925 sterling certified recycled silver for our products. What does this mean? Metal mining is one of the most environmentally destructive types of mining and millions of miners earn low wages in dangerous working conditions. To diminish the negative impacts of those matters by reducing the demand for newly mined metals and contributing to programs dedicated to improving mining practices. We find it important that there has not been mined in an area of armed conflict and traded illicitly to finance the fighting. The recycling silver comes from numerous sources. It can be recycled repeatedly without degradation in quality, they are a naturally renewable resource. The factory meets the EU’s REACH regulation (Restriction, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals) which aims to restrict hazardous substances such as nickel, lead and cadmium in all parts of jewellery.

The factory we work with is compliant with the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative), an initiative that enforces international labour standards protecting workers.
