By Mölle was born out of a love to make a positive impact on the earth. A shared passion for sustainable, fine textiles and artisan crafted quality goods. What we couldn’t find, we decided to make. Discover our slow living collection with pure linens and fine designs. All made with respect for the earth.
Mölle is the word for mill in our local dialect, and the studio is based in Dalfsen in the Dutch country side. This is also where you can stay at one of our lodges. Enjoy the beauty of nature, sleep under fine linens and fall in love with 't Witte Huis or the Lemelerberg Lodge. Explore hidden tracks, and spot birds, squirrel and deer. With your stay at the lodges we help Landschap Overijssel protect nature and national heritage in Overijssel, so we can all enjoy slow living. See you!
Create - We believe in the beauty of bringing slow living into our day-to-day routines. We make all cushions, bed- and table linens by hand in our studio in Dalfsen. From bespoke quilts to linen napkins, everything is made to order and we can make it exactly how you like it. That’s why you can buy our linen bedding exclusively in our online store and studio in the Dutch countryside.
Collaborate - We like to work with small run, independent artisans and designers to create limited edition designs. Craftsmen that put a lot of thought, time and love into unique handmade products. A beautiful example of this is the recycled denim scarf we designed together with Annemieke Koster.
Collect - While searching for eco-friendly, natural materials and European craftsmanship we discover designers and brands that share our slow living ethos. You can find a selection of their products online and in our studio, all collected By Mölle.
By Mölle linen is 100% natural and incredibly comfortable. Cool in summer and warm in winter. The more you use it, the softer it gets. Linen fabric is made from flax, Linum Usitatissimum. It is the only plant textile fibre that originates from Europe. From farming and harvesting, to weaving and finishing, linen fabric is one of the most environmentally friendly fibers in the world. It can’t be relocated and needs the sea climate and rich soil to grow. Flax doesn’t need any irrigation or pesticides and is a true carbon well. Everything from the flax plant is used; the seeds in bread and for linseed oil, the fibers for linen, ropes, paper and insulation materials. For superior quality we use the best flax that grows on the western European Atlantic coast. After harvesting the flax goes to historic makers in France, Belgium and the Baltics. Undoubtedly amongst the most highly regarded linen producers in Europe. The mills take care of all the stages in the process of creating our linen fabric, from flax to fabric.
The chambray linen fabric is yarn-dyed, which gives it a beautiful color and structure. You see and feel the craftsmanship in our fine woven fabrics in beautiful natural shades. Over 5000 years ago the Egyptians called linen woven moonlight, because of its natural beauty and softness. Sweet dreams!

Recycled denim collection
“Recycling – to break something down into raw materials that are then used to make new items. Recycling reduces waste, saves energy, and reduces the consumption of raw materials.”
In the Netherlands we throw away 210.000 kilotons textiles every year. We want to change this and give textiles a second life by removing zips and buttons and spinning the fibre to a soft, high quality yarn that we use for our recycled denim collection. The pieces are selected by color, reduced to fibers and spun to beautiful yarn that we use for our home textiles and wraps. Eco-friendly, a good alternative for cotton and a great way to dress your home.
Our woolen throws and blankets are pure natural, very warm and timeless. The natural shades of the pure wool are an inspiration for our designs. For our grey throws we use for example the wool of the Gotland sheep, an ancient Nordic breed. The amazingly soft merino wool wraps are woven for us by a traditional Italian wool mill that is located in the mountains near Bergamo. For these wraps we use the finest, Woolmark certified merino wool, guaranteed mueseling free.

Our rugs are 100% handmade, using Fair Trade practices with natural and sustainable fibres. Infused with the rich work of artisans whose intricate weaving traditions are passed down through generations. The preservation of these age old skills and the income they bring are vital. More than ten pairs of hands are required to create and finish each rug.
Every purchase enhances the lives of our weavers and their communities, giving them a means to improve living standards and enjoy a discretionary income. Each rug is nurtured on its journey from fibre to finished product by the skilled hands of our dyers, weavers and finishers. The handmade process results in them being imbued with a unique character. We also give careful consideration to our environmental foot print. Our rugs frequently travel between villages by way of more eco-friendly transport, such as motorbikes and bicycles.
