Netherlands based By Mölle has just released their first collection of linen tea towels. A minimalistic design, chambray woven in four subtle colour combinations.
Linen has always been a favourite fabric of the sisters that run the unique By Mölle, loving its use in the kitchen as it absorbs lots of water, doesn’t leave any lint and dries quickly, along with its very eco-friendly nature.
These tea towels are the first products of a linen collection that will be launched the coming months. In collaboration with a century old weaver from Lithuania, By Mölle developed a range of sustainable linen fabrics that will be the base of a new collection with bedlinen, throws and cushions.
All of By Mölle’s work is crafted in Europe by people who are passionate about their work, home textiles made of natural materials. Their website is well worth visiting www.bymolle.com.
By Mölle create wonderful natural fabrics in The Netherlands. Sisters Eveline and Marianne Maat are proud to have founded a brand that promotes a conscious lifestyle, and it’s a pleasure to showcase this ethos with their autumn/winter collection 2013/2104.
They make conscious choices in the materials sourced, the production methods used and the people they collaborate with. By Mölle question the status quo and are always looking for new ways to have a positive impact on their environment.
New additions to the collection are soft cushions made of linen and recycled denim which can be combined with chunky denim throws or the Mill blanket made of undyed Scandinavian wool.
This range is available in stores now, see more on the By Mölle website. Photography by Eveline Maat, shot at Mick Keus’ jeans studio.
I spotted a new range of beautiful natural fabrics recently created in The Netherlands. The company is called By Mölle, and they supply blankets made of undyed Scandinavian wool.
Founded in 2011 by sisters, Eveline and Marianne Maat, they are a Dutch brand that promotes a conscious lifestyle. Their home collection is made of natural, pure materials and they work in collaboration with European artisans and craftsmen.
These are soft blankets that still smell of the sheep that produced the wool, from Norwegian and Swedish sheep, selected by color and carefully spun. Dyeing and bleaching is not necessary as they use the grey and brown shades as the basis for distinctive graphic patterns.
