The story of Not Only White begins in 2010, in Amsterdam. After her studies Industrial Product Engineering, followed by her first working experience at Pastoe as a product developer and consecutive enjoying 6 years as designer and art-director of her first co-owned label, Marike Andeweg founded her own brand and named it Not Only White.
From an early age, Marike was intrigued by brands and objects. She discovered it was about that contented feeling you have, when something is deceptively simple but very sophisticated. How a connection can arise between an object and its viewer. A story told without words. This is how her interest and passion for design started.
After running Not Only White with a small, dedicated team for 12 years, in 2022 the brand merged. The head office has therefor relocated from The Netherlands to Ostend in Belgium. Marike's creative studio is still based in a former garage in Amsterdam.
Marike Andeweg has won several international design prices, including the Red Dot Design Award, iF Design Award and German Design Award.
"My work has to be inviting to touch and contribute to create simple pleasures in life just by looking at it.
I love to play with functionality and simple aesthetics. My label brings the pleasure of refined luxury with a relaxed attitude.
Not taking your time, but giving."
