Pop Trading Company

Amsterdam's best skate brand, Pop Trading Company started out as a distributor and then turned into its very own label.

Founders Peter Kolks and Ric van Rest started off by opening a boutique style skate shop in order to open up skateboarding to a whole other audience. The pair started selling brands like APC and Norse Projects alongside rare Vans and Nike SB stuff. Which later led them to starting a distribution company for brands like Palace, Polar Skate Co and Magenta Skateboards.

Moving several years forward as a successful distributor, they decided to start their own line with one goal “work with the best skate stores and the best menswear retailers in the world”. Which they did by being stocked at Supreme Paris, Mr.Porter, Opening Ceremony and many others.

Pop Trading Company is an active part of Amsterdam’s skate culture, by holding various skate sessions for the community. That aside, the company produces high quality garments taking inspiration from the brands that they have worked with in past, which in turn has taught them to produce quality products that the consumer wants.
