Clogs are traditionally made in the Koop family. In the beginning, this was done in the farmyard of the farmers, but since 1900 Graads Koop has started making clogs in a small clog factory at the current location.
Since then the company has passed from father to son or daughter and now the 4th generation is already making clogs.
Over the generations the company grew and in addition to the mechanical manufacture of clogs, the company also continued to practice the old craft: making and painting clogs by hand.
Klompenmakerij Koop is a real family business. Marjo Pouwels-Koop and her husband Remon are currently running the clog factory. Mother Koop and Brother Ronny also help where they can.
On Wednesdays and Saturdays, clogs are regularly made, so if you visit the museum on these days, you have a chance to watch the live clog making.
