At ZILCH colour is key. We create collections with timeless feminine styles in bold prints and colours. We value the use of natural fibers that feel comfortable and soft. Our broad range of ‘bamboo basics’ feel like a second skin and complete the collection. Combining solids and prints is a joy for every outfit. Choose a printed dress with matching basic cardigan or be more daring with a funky printed pants and a dotted jumper.

Whatever you choose, COLOUR YOUR DAY with ZILCH!

ZILCH is a small family business with its headquarters in Amsterdam. Owner Gabriel Thissen started the brand 30 years ago when he took over a small vintage shop in the centre of Amsterdam. In 1989 he started producing oversized blouses in pure silk and over the years the company grew. With a small team of nieces, a nephew and other enthusiasts, we create collections.

The meaning of ZILCH may be nada, noppes, but we have grown into a solid and diverse brand.

Brand stores and other selling points


When creating collections, we mainly choose natural materials such as bamboo, viscose, cotton and blends of these comfortable materials. With every collection we introduce new sustainable materials.

As standard we use eco-cotton, tencel® and eco-viscose in our collections. We only work with factories that use environmentally friendly paints and no aggressive dyeing techniques. Above all, we value the working conditions of the factory employees. The factories we work with produce according to the International Labour Standards. Each season, we visit our factories in Asia and Greece and have close contacts during the production process at contact.

Besides making sure our factory workers live and work in healthy circumstances, we have also committed ourselves to a group called ‘Movement On The Ground’. They are independent business people responding to humanitarian crisis affecting the innocent men, women, and children forced from their homes. by climate change, poverty, or war.
