Besides the flag store it is only possible to shop the clothing in various webshops across Europe. The mission is to become a global fashion brand.

All collections are based on Jettekes own personal stories and therefore you will never see two alike. The love to the nature is one of the cornerstones of Jettekes stories and inspiration. Besides nature the Dutch designers finds inspiration in her passion for travel, in discovering new cultures and local traditions and by being surrounded by her family and friends. No matter where the inspiration is found, you will always be able to see the inspiration directly in the clothing in terms of colours, texture, materials and fittings.
