WHAT IS BETTER THAN HAVING A PERSONAL SHOPPER? A SUSTAINABLE ONE
HOUSE OF EINSTEIN
House of Einstein is the most personal online shopping service for men. They make sure you’ll get dressed perfectly, without the hassle of having to look for clothes yourself. You’ll receive a personalized box of clothing, hand picked by your so-called Outfitter. They are experts in the smart casual / business casual style: always stylish and never boring. They work with more than 30 premium brands.
So how does it work? Very simple. You meet your Outfitter through a personal meeting, phone call, Skype, or FaceTime, and discuss your personal preferences and wishes. Based on this, the Outfitter will create a unique box of clothing for you! The box is then send to you, so that you can try on all the pieces of clothing in the comfort of your own home. The pieces that you do not like can be easily returned and you (of course!) only pay for the pieces of clothing that you wish to keep.
THE SUSTAINABLE BOX
Today, House of Einstein will launch their new type of box: The Sustainable Box. This box will ultimately consist of brands who care about People, Planet, and Profit. The working conditions of the brands are of high standard, providing a safe and anti-child labor working environment. Also, all brands ensure that the environment does not suffer from their actions. Lastly, the brands have a positive effect on the economy, providing job opportunities or investing in infrastructure.
MEET THE FOUNDERS
Jantien and Ling met each other when they both worked at Red Bull during their studies at the Technologic University (TU) in Delft. In 2012 they started to combine their passion for fashion, entrepreneurship, and technology.
The previous office of House of Einstein was located in Leiden. Over 100 years ago, this house was built by the great-grandmother of Jantien. She was a biologist and an acquaintance of Professor Ehrenfest. Every now and then, the famous Professor Einstein would come to Leiden as a guest lecturer. The three scientists would often meet up to study and discuss together.
This means that Einstein often visited this house in Leiden, making their first office space even more special with such great history. The name of the business is thus a direct reference to the house where Einstein stayed when visiting the Netherlands!
