Meaningful handmade home accessories
Slow made homewares for the conscious collector
Doctrine is more than just a collection of handmade objects. We are a community of skilled artisans who believe in the value of slow, sustainable craftsmanship.
We believe in careful curation of personal touchstones that add value to your daily rituals and meaning to your space. Handmade home accessories that add to the rich tapestry of stories that make you, you.
In craft we trust. This is our Doctrine.
“I really appreciate hand crafted objects as opposed to the mass production, and such products I’ve found in Doctrine Store. I love to enjoy them every day, and this feeling is priceless.”

Doctrine is a creative community of skilled makers curated by architect, interior designer and ceramicist, Agata Pilip.
Working with world-leading designers and brands taught Agata the value of quality craftsmanship and conscious curation. She learned that while the design identifies needs and solves problems, the distinct, original pieces crafted by inspiring artists add value to the user's life.
Drawing on this, she created Doctrine to add important layers of meaning to a space, while cherishing the skills and the stories of the artists who made them.
Your support enables these artisans to continue the tradition of slow craftsmanship, allowing them to make more and reach more people. All of this contributes to building a culture of slow, conscious creation and collection.
Each piece you collect is imbued not just with your stories, but of the makers. Craftspeople who developed and refined their techniques to make the pieces you use every day. Here, you can explore those stories, and learn about crafts.
Rediscover the innovative art of purposeful making. Understand how your purchase contributes to a more ethical way of making that avoids unnecessary waste.
We work with artists who are involved in the conception and creation of their pieces, and are conscious of the social and environment impacts of their creative processes.
Discover new ways of making and fall in love with a new artist every month.
We understand how important it is to find a piece that speaks to you. Something that isn’t just functional, but also meaningful for you. To help you, we developed a process for customising our signature range of handmade ceramic homewares, Doctrine Amsterdam.
The creative process is simple and designed to ensure your vision comes to life, just as you imagined:
