An enterprise founded in 2014 by Ratna Ho & Pascal Mulder, powered by Buitink Technology.
Items developed under these brands set themselves apart:
Upcycled - Made of residual materials
Animal friendly / Vegan
Made under fair circumstances in The Netherlands
Together we collaborate on designing both practical, durable, powerful and expressive bags.
Our main activity is to develop, design and manufacture bags in all shapes and sizes.
Items under both the RATNA HO and STUDIO MULDER collections set themselves apart by targeting a different audience.
The endless possibilities in colour, textures, and coatings create the ultimate RATNA HO item, for young women of every age. They are designed to be used on a daily basis, functionality with a twist.
The STUDIO MULDER-bag can be recognised by its stylish simplicity, made of uncompromisingly durable materials. For the ones that want to stand out without overstating.
Collections are designed and developed by Ratna Ho, Pascal Mulder, and their talented team. RATNA HO is known for innovative and provocative collections. After completing her Fashion Design course at ArtEZ (Arnhem, The Netherlands), Ratna earned a Master's degree at the prestigious Central St. Martins (London). Together with Pascal (Product Design, ArtEZ Arnhem), they founded labels RATNA HO and STUDIO MULDER.
Since then, they have collaborated with stars: like Armin van Buuren and Natalie la Rose and presented their collection during Amsterdam Fashion Week. Since the focus has shifted towards sustainable fashion accessories, the designers present their latest collections every half year during (inter)national fashion shows.
All items from the collections are made by hand, using specialised sailmaker techniques, such as radio frequency- and ultrasonic welding.
Next to our studio, we've recently opened a sustainable concept store (HO&MULDER) @ Beekstraat 30 in Arnhem.. Here one can find the latest designs, but also prototypes of our newest fashion accessories.
Besides our own collection, we also display and sell collections of around 35 local designers and labels, mixed with several sustainable brands.
HO & MULDER also provide fabrics and industrial fabrics to be used in fashion or other projects. With this material, varying from supple/thin and translucent to thicker and rigid technical textiles, everything can be made. It's UV resistant material, normally used in large constructions for outside use. We sell these materials per meter.
We also sell more conventional fashion fabrics
