Products that are so delightful, they turn daily chores into cherished rituals and have found their way into millions of homes and hearts worldwide.
Everybody loves Patrice
Brabantia first introduced the timeless Patrice print, created by Patricia van Uden, in 1969. The design became a seventies icon, with brown and cyclamen flowers on an orange backdrop. The original flowers were hand cut from paper, giving the design that unique and desirable artisan touch. Patrice is one of the most loved designs ever – 5 million Patrice step cans alone were sold in the 10 years the print was produced! A great success and an inspiration to many designers over the years.
Tijn van Elderen, CEO “What better way to celebrate 100 years of Brabantia than with this successful décor of powerful flowers?”
Live bold, live retro
The iconic Patrice flower print springs back to life on the most successful products of today. Amongst them are two bestseller bins: the Step Can newIcon 8 Gal with its slightly retro look, but modern-day comfort and sustainability, and of course the Bo Touch Top Trash Can 3 + 6 Gal. This unique bin on legs is rapidly turning into the next Brabantia supermodel. Also dressed in Patrice are the ever-popular Roll Top Bread Box and of course a 1.5 Quart Canister. You get a 10-year guarantee on all of them.
