About Noosa Amsterdam
NOOSA Amsterdam is a unique concept created by two very passionate travellers who found themselves inspired by the huge diversity of cultures and symbolism found on Earth. Together, they came up with the idea of a unique line of customisable accessories: NOOSA.
NOOSA chunks can be seen as ‘souvenirs of yourself’; elements that create the feeling of being memories of extensive travels, unique cultures and the people you have met. The name NOOSA comes from the eponymous town in Australia, which both of the company’s founders have visited independently from each other. Both of them were deeply impressed by its atmosphere of authenticity, the special people and the magnificent National Park and therefore decided that NOOSA would be the perfect name for their brand of accessories.
