I am happy with the movement buying from local entrepreneurs! :)I would always recommend to buy local handcraft. There are several shops in Amsterdam selling local products, such as the Local Goods Store or Locals. V@Amsterdam which is an Amsterdam based company, designs and sells beautiful pillow covers made by women disadvantaged on the employment market. They deliver world-wide. The houses on the pillows are all cut by hand and sewed on the pillow with a sewing machine. For an experienced worker it takes about 4 hours to make one small pillow. They are soft and very high quality. Check the website: http://www.vatamsterdam.com
