We are two creatives: Dirk Hagenbeek and Yaël Junggeburth. Our whole life we have been drawing, designing and creating. Frustrated by the lack of unique clothing in Amsterdam and inspired by a deep-rooted love for denim, we founded Jacka Amsterdam. We both have a soft spot for one of a kind jackets, especially denim. The continuously changing urban scene of Amsterdam and innovative outstanding people inspire us to create new drawings and develop new ideas.
The name Jacka derives from the urban word that is often used in Amsterdam for jacket: Jacka. We create personal, customized denim jackets that have quickly become a must-have item for the young crowd in Amsterdam. All Jacka’s have a unique, hand-painted design that will distinguish you from the mainstream crowd.
