Somewhat hidden inbetween the big chain stores in shopping mall ‘Oostpoort’, you can find a real gem: Het Faire Oosten (HFO). This is a giant 600m2 multifunctional space with an amazing store, gallery, workshopspace and a soon-to-be lunchcorner. All of it build around the values of sustainability, craftsmanship and creativity. 
From jewellery to furniture, it’s all there. With a great mix of small local handcrafted products and Dutch clothing brands like Ignore and Studio Jux, topped with more established fair fashion brands like People Tree, Komodo and Armed Angels, there is definitely something to be found for everyone.

There is more to it
Shopping is fun, we can’t deny that, but the cool thing about HFO is that they offer way more. The gallery gives starting artists a stage to present their work. Every 3 months new artist will be selected to be part of the exhibiton. The sales go really well because of the respectively low prices for new  to be discovered artists’ work.
On the first floor there’s a nice space with different workshops all about health, relaxation, fun, exercise, food and much more. If you’re feeling inspired, you can give a workshop yourself or even organize your own.

The woman behind it all
Behind this amazing concept stands Magali Heuberger. A positive and open minded woman, an ‘Eastie’ herself, with an everlasting smile stuck on her face. Driven by showing the attractive alternatives to the soulless mass production she decided to create HFO, a place where people can come together and find real products of well treated makers with a true story.
