"It's the little things in life that make the difference. We believe in that. A sweet gesture, a moment between people or just for yourself, in the garden or on the sofa. It is the thinking behind everything we do. At Brabantia, we make household products that are just that little bit more beautiful, enjoyable and sustainable. Made with an eye for detail and an eye for people and our world. So that you can enjoy the things life is really about."
Tijn, CEO Brabantia
Brabantia can be found all over the world. We have offices and production facilities from Austria to the US, and from China to Finland. But our roots are in the Netherlands, in the province of Brabant to be precise. That is where in 1919 great-grandfather Van Elderen produced his first milk cans and jugs. We made our first pedal bins in 1952, and our iconic Patrice’ pattern dates from 1969. Now, the fourth generation is at the helm of our family business, and our Dutch Design has won a place in the homes and hearts of millions worldwide.
SUSTAINABLE BY NATURE.
We love our planet as much as you do. That’s why we design recyclability into all our products. We started recycling before the word was even invented, turning tins for condensed milk into new cups in the 1940’s. Today, our products help you do your part for the planet too. Like kitchen tools with double functions, waste bins designed for separating waste, drying racks and rotary dryers for natural drying, jars that prevent food waste and even smart ironing board covers for more effective ironing. On top of that, we support big and small initiatives that make the world more beautiful.
Over the years, we have added various products to our range. But we have also removed some from our range again. The products we no longer have in our range can still - after many years - be found in people's homes. Now that's great! We collect the photos we see of them. For our digital (worldwide) museum ;-).
Here, you will only find products that we no longer produce and sell. You'll come across kitchen ladders, Patrice prints, ironing chairs, floor mops and safe deposit boxes, to name a few.
