Closet Clean

We’re cleaning out the stock of our cushion covers and blankets! This is a rare opportunity for you, to purchase one of our ‘Socially Made in Amsterdam’ products with a discount. These covers and blankets are knitted by hand by our craftswomen in Amsterdam West. The sale is only available online and only on the products that are in stock. Head over to our website to check out the sweet deals.

Let me explain why it is a rare sale: Our production is made by hand out of quality materials. Therefore our prices are honest and that is why we believe that it is unethical to participate on the regular sale-calendar. Then you question: why this exception?

At Winter in Holland we learn and develop every day. We took a look at our stocking system, and we’ve learned that it is not optimal to stock our cushion covers the way we do. The label stocks about 32 kinds of cushions and 10 kinds of blankets. This is a lot for a small business. Besides that it takes up a lot of space, it more importantly becomes cheaper to handle the stocking differently. So therefore we decided to knit only on order and make a spring-clean in our stock! You can take a benefit from it.

Details of the sale: The sale is only applicable on items which are in our stock. Non-stocked items are knitted specifically for each order, and therefore have our normal prices. For the current stock-items, check our web shop.

Press Release Winter in Holland January 2018

Winter in Holland – Finest Fabrics – Interior and fashion accessories



We are proud to announce that this year our Amsterdam social-productions will run fully. All orders made from this point on, are Socially Made in Amsterdam:

The makers come from cultures where education for women, unfortunately, still is uncommon. Ever since they moved to the Netherlands years ago, they were unable to participate on the job market. They were bound to home instead. Winter in Holland helps these women become independent and gives them a career within the field of textiles. The women are educated to become professional knitters, are paid for their work and can receive help to set up their own business. All products made by these craftswomen, are marked with the label: Socially Made in Amsterdam.

 How amazing is it, that we can help each-other out


Winter in Holland is a slow-fashion textile brand conceived and established in Amsterdam by Anouk van der Laan. For us creating fabrics is all about form and function. Focussing on both knitting and weaving allows us to choose the optimal combination between the aesthetics and the purpose of a product. Intrigued by the marriage between man and machine we continuously experiment and search for new and existing techniques. We are eager to find new solutions and come up with unexpected patterns and detailing.


The products in our current collection, made under the label ‘Socially Made in Amsterdam’, are LIJN and Collection 2. Both collections are developed to solely be made by hand: the techniques used are impossible to develop in factories. The attention the knitter gives to each row of the knit, is the soul of the product and the key to the design:

LIJN: The merino woollen scarfs and blankets comes in a plain color with one graphic line in a contrasting color. The craftswomen decides where to place the line, leaving her personal mark on every product:



Collection 2: The yarn of each product is dyed by hand in a special technique which makes the gradient print possible. The craftswomen puts a certain tension on the yarn, deciding the placement of the dye on every knitted row.
