Doing Goods E1598278869352

Founded in 2010 by Jan Swinkels & Aanyoung Yeh. SO, how did it all come about? Jan used to work in the financial world. One day, Jan thought he'd worked way too many hours for the man and went for himself. Then he raised his hard-earned savings, headed for the Far East, filled a container with locally handcrafted goodies, and shipped it to Europe. It was all a bit of a gamble, but Jan trusted his gut feeling that everything would work out just fine. And it did. Jan can come across as chaotic and happy-go-lucky. But don't be fooled, this man knows how to run a business. It was while traveling through Asia for doing Goods that Jan got the idea to make wall panels from reclaimed wood. He turned the idea into a company and called it Wonderwall Studios. A second company was born. His girlfriend Aanyoung, helped him out whenever she could. But as she was a designer at a major fashion label, time was scarce. In 2013, after a few years working late evenings and spending too many weekends unpacking shipping crates and dusting quirks and curiosities, Aanyoung quit her job to close the business. She is the creative genius behind Jan's business savvy. Aanyoung Yeh is a stylist, collector and archivist, designer, tourist, traveler, and home bird. Her blood is 100% Chinese, her brain and soul a cocktail of European, American and Asian influences and idiosyncrasies. She started out as a fashion designer for several brands, finally settling in with a label based in Amsterdam. Here Aanyoung worked as a children wear designer for years. During her work Aanyoung traveled to the four corners of the world. It was during these travels that she would discover her love for collecting trinkets that would remind her of her journey. Once home, these trinkets would be archived or put on display - each a unique item with its own story. She and Jan make a great couple. She is Jan's yin. Or yang. Depending on how you look at it. They crackle and pop and are the proverbial peas-in-the-pod.
