Marleen Molenaar is a luxurious children's sleep- and loungewear brand launched in 2003 to cater to a specific niche in
the childrenswear market for comfortably fitted, intricately detailed, exceptional high quality and affordable sleep-and
loungewear. Since its inception, the brand has grown with its distinctive positioning in the market providing high
quality and luxurious fabrics and tailoring for children at an accessible price point.
Marleen Molenaar hails from the city of Amsterdam, where past graduate studies took her into the creative world of
textural art and design at the city's famous Academy of Art. This was immediately followed by training in 'ready to
wear' design and 'made to measure' tailoring. Marleen's passion for fabrics led her 20 years of professional experience
in the field of design and fashion for various international design houses.
Through the blossoming childhood of Marleen's family, she became keenly aware of a lack of acceptable sleep-and
loungewear for children. She was inspired to develop such clothing for children imbibed with the values she espouses comfort, quality, style, and versatility. Marleen Molenaar sleep-and loungewear have a distinct European flair. They
embody tradition and understated elegance, mixed with a touch of modernity and contemporary style. They reflect
Marleen Molenaar's qualities of being inherently European, cosmopolitan, and truly international.
