SILK SCARF AMSTERDAM-ROTTERDAM BLACK

How classy is this silk chiffon scarf with a print of former warehouse Afrika at Oostelijke Handelskade in Amsterdam? This warehouse has a beautiful story, like many other buildings in Amsterdam.

In former warehouse Afrika goods were stored by the Blue Hats Storehouse (in Dutch Blauwhoedenveem). The Blue Hats Storehouse was founded in 1616 by the carriers who transported goods from the boats to the weigh house and into the warehouses. The carriers were wearing blue hats to distinguish themselves from the competition who wore f.e. white or red hats. After taking over the Red Hats Storehouse, the Blue Hats Storehouse opened an office in Rotterdam in 1878. Even later the Amsterdam and Rotterdam offices merged into the predecessor of Royal Vopak, a Dutch company with a beautiful history that goes back to the Golden Age.

This unique design makes this scarf a perfect companion on every outing. Going chique to Het Concertgebouw or in black on your way to Paradiso? This scarf gives the finishing touch, subtle Amsterdam with a touch of Rotterdam (which has become very popular as well with the die-hard Amsterdammers ....). You will always have a conversation topic. Very handy when your date is actually extremely boring!

The best fun is taking your scarf for a selfie at the Afrika warehouse. So check out the U&I in the City tour&greeting card Amsterdam North & Eastern Islands and set off for a fun day out.
