Brabantia is a company in the Dutch village of Aalst that manufactures metal and plastic household products.
Founded in 1919, the company had the name "Van Elderen & Co". After some time, the name has changed to "Van Elderen's Metaalwarenfabrieken Brabantia". Around 1941 the first part of the name has been omitted, and it is now only "Brabantia".
"Brabantia" is the Latin word for Brabant, a Dutch province.
To date, the Brabantia items from the 60s and 70s are still collected and are highly sought after by many fans of vintage. Both to be used and for decoration!
