Love & Other Necessities is a project by Dirkje Bakker-Pierre (aka Derrekien). A former creative who found herself on the path of spiritual awakening and has been moving on the crossroads of creativity and spirituality ever since.

An experienced energy worker/reader with over 10000 readings in combination with artistic expression and intuitive creativity she not only offers her own services and products but is also actively working with others who are interested in discovering and growing their skills in this area. Recently Sound has been added as another way of working with energy and tranforming it.

Each made-to-order garment is printed with a Freedom Drawing that carries the energy of a spiritual lesson which gives wearing it an extra dimension. Freedom drawings came into being during travels on this amazing planet and into the world of meditation and spirituality.

They are never planned, always free-style, made in the moment and straight from the heart. They just happen, like everything else really.

The Freedom Drawings series, the idea for L&ON Necessities and the dream to share all of this with the world originated during my travels around the globe and into the world of meditation, spirituality and pure, freestyle creativity.


We source products and fabrics from ethical eco-friendly brands and suppliers that comply to labor, environmental, and safety standards. 

We use water based pigment inks. These inks are CPSIA compliant and Oeko-Tex™ certified, which means they are safe to print on youth/children’s clothing and reduce environmental waste. 

Part of our materials is recycled and we work towards growing that part more & more.
