Lex Pott for Weltevree
Iconic, durable, heritage. Those are the three words associated with the Poplars, a 2019 Dutch Design Awards nominee. After centuries of no change, designer Lex Pott has now geared up the classic Dutch wooden shoe for modern life with a new and slick silhouette, without losing the comfort and benefits from the wooden clog we all know. Because: “After all these years, it’s still a convenient and natural shoe for gardening.”
More importantly, the Poplars show that redefining iconic existing products can be a great alternative to plastic. Durability and craft meet in the local Krajenbrink Klompenfabriek, one of the last remaining authentic clog factories in The Netherlands, to create the Poplars. As is tradition, each Poplar is made from a single log of Dutch poplar wood with little to no waste. They are then finished in both a natural nude and dusty pink color.
