We've returned to Amsterdam and opened up our showroom to preview the HoodLamb Fall Winter 10/11 Collection! We have sooo many new items which we're totally stoked about like the HoodLamb Speaker Bag, Ladies Fleece Mini Skirt, Ladies Furry Bag, Stash Mits and Fully Furry Ruderalis Hats.
Classics like the HoodLamb Classic Jacket, Tech 4-20, Ladies Long Coat and Furry Hoody are of course back for FW 10/11 together with nice new styles of comfortable and stylish hoodies, t-shirts and tank tops; all made from eco-friendly hemp and organic cotton material blends.
If you have a store and are interested in carrying HoodLamb,
you're more than welcome to come by. Please email us for an appointment
at email@example.com. If you are located outside of the Netherlands,
we can send you information on distributors in your area. Enjoy!
The HoodLamb Speaker Bag is a nicely designed, durable and very practical backpack. It's made from super strong hemp/organic cotton fabric so you can carry your life on you without having to worry that it might break down. It also has tons of handy (secret) pockets and... as icing on the cake... built in speakers so you can throw a party wherever you are!
Recently the HoodLamb Crew visited the BRIGHT skateboard trade show in Frankfurt where our German distributor Burning Business / Team 667 set up shop to present the Fall/Winter 2010/2011 Collection of HoodLamb. If you have a store in Germany and would like to carry HoodLamb, you can contact Tim from Burning Business (+49 (0)211 7213103) now for pre-orders!
Located in an old prison, the BRIGHT show has a unique atmosphere because every brand has its own prison cell as a showroom. There even is a little indoor skate park on which Europe's best were ripping it up. Unfortunately this was the last show in Frankfurt, as the BRIGHT will be moving to Berlin. Maybe see you there this summer!
"At 0630 Hours, Sea Shepherd Captain Peter Bethune of the vessel Ady Gil, which was sunk by the Japanese security ship Shonan Maru 2, boarded the whaling ship to conduct a citizen’s arrest of the skipper of the Shonan Maru 2.
Captain Bethune boarded the whaling ship under cover of darkness from a Jet Ski as the Shonan Maru 2 was traveling at 14 knots in the Southern Ocean. His first attempt failed when he fell into the frigid waters, but despite this the crew of the Shonan Maru 2 failed to see him and he successfully boarded the whaler without detection.
Captain Bethune’s breaching the security of the whaling fleet security vessel remained undetected for one and a half hours.
At 0800 Hours, once the sun had risen, Captain Bethune calmly knocked on the bridge wing door, entered the wheelhouse, and presented himself to the Captain of Shonan Maru 2 where he informed the skipper that he was under arrest for the sinking of the Sea Shepherd ship Ady Gil on January 6th, 2010.
All radio communications with Peter Bethune ceased at 0805. The Shonan Maru 2 did acknowledge that Bethune was on board.
The Sea Shepherd ships Steve Irwin and Bob Barker continue to pursue the Japanese whaling ship Nisshin Maru eastward across the Southern Ocean. The ships are presently south of Australia’s Heard Island". source seashepherd.org

We just received another shipment of Blackspot Shoes. We were the first store in the Netherlands to carry Adbusters' earth-friendly and anti-sweatshop hemp shoes but were sold out for a few months now. No worries though, we got full stock again! So come by our store to give your feet some ethical pleasure! Also available online at shop.hempworks.nl
"Blackspot is our experiment with grassroots capitalism. After spending so many years railing against the practices of megacorporations like McDonalds, Starbucks and Nike, we wanted to prove that running an ethical business is possible. The reality is that most of us have to buy shoes on a regular basis, so we wanted to introduce an option that is socially and environmentally responsible to a market that is sorely lacking in similar convictions.
Blackspot shoes are made with hemp, recycled tires and vegan leather and produced in fair-trade or unionized factories. We sell only to independent retailers worldwide in order to cycle money back into local economies.
Blackspot is also an open-source brand, which means that it can be used by anyone for any purpose at no cost. Our hope is that people with similar philosophies will be inspired by our experiment and start their own business ventures, spreading indie culture and providing ever more alternatives to buying from megacorporations. Blackspot is about more than marketing a brand or deconstructing the meaning of cool – it's about changing the way the world does business". source Adbusters Culturejammer Head Quarters
