A century of Dutch Design
Brabantia started in 1919 as Van Elderen & Co in Aalst Netherlands and began by producing milk cans, jugs, sieves and funnels. Over the years, Brabantia has grown into a global interior design brand, renowned for bringing smart and stylish design to kitchen and homeware. The first range of step cans were made in 1955. Another landmark was the launch of the iconic ‘Patrice’ pattern in 1969, whilst the famous plastic corkscrew dates back to 1985. Modern-day favorites are the unique Bo Touch Top Trash Can and the Linn Collection for styling up your laundry. Products that are so delightful, they turn daily chores into cherished rituals.
