Uiltje was a Dutch cigar brand.
The brand was used until 1965 by the Kamper cigar factory La Bolsa. On July 1, 1963, La Bolsa was merged with Philips Tabak, producer of the Martinez cigars. Due to continual mechanization and the decrease in the use of cigars, the Philips group decided in 1965 to close its least profitable factory, at that time it was the Kampen cigar factory N.V. La Bolsa. The dismissal of staff members had an extension period until 1 June 1965.
A few series of cigar bands were also issued via the Uiltje brand.
