A Dutch brand known for vibrant colors, tiered layers and intricate knits. Founded in 1963 in the Netherlands by Marieke and Willem Olsthoorn, Oilily considers itself a progressive art-based label, and according to its press materials, is inspired by the work of famous Dutch artists and designers like Rem Koolhaas, Mies van der Rohe and Rembrandt.
Willem “Olli” Olsthoorn and his wife Marieke Olsthoorn (a textile engineer & a textile design teacher), decided that the world of children’s clothing had gone long enough without a real commitment to pure imagination, rich textures, vivid color harmonies, and a spirit of unbridled celebration. Together they created Oilily, founded partly on an approach first explored while creating styles for their own children.
Oilily is a premium worldwide fashion label that focused on creative, independent, fearless women of all ages, who have a passionate interest in contemporary, artisan fashion. Everything we do and create reflects our strong brand personality; a personality that is inspiring, joyful, fearless, young at heart, cosmopolitan, seductive, relaxed and soulful.

The Rainbow Goblins
Ul de Rico
Once there was a land that lived in
fear of seven goblins. They were called the Rainbow Goblins and each had his own color, which was also his name: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. Yellow, being the craftiest, was their chief. The goblins lived on color- they prowled the valleys and climbed the highest mountains looking for rainbows, and when they found one, they caught it in their lassoes, sucked the colors out of it and filled their bellies with its bright liquid.
Only one place in the land had never known goblin fear- the hidden valley called the Valley of the Rainbow, where the great arches of color were born. There the animals still lived in paradise. But the Rainbow Goblins had heard tales of this Valley, and their mouths watered whenever they thought of the feast that awaited them there; and so they gathered up their lassoes and their pails and set off.
With great effort, the goblins made their way over the jagged piles of rock that guarded the entrance. When the climbing became difficult, Yellow roared: “Don’t lose heart, comrades! Think of the delicious colors ahead!” The sun had almost set by the time they reached their goal- the very meadow where the Rainbow sprang to life. Immediately beneath the meadow they found a cave. “We’ll spend the night here,” the Yellow Goblin commanded. When the moon rose and saw them warming themselves around the fire they had lit, it shouted out in alarm, “The Rainbow Goblins are in the Valley!” The trees and the bushes took up the cry, and the flowers and the grasses and the animals and the water passed it on, and by midnight the evil tidings had spread throughout the Valley. The Goblins could hardly contain their excitement. “Soon all the colors of the Rainbow will be ours,” Yellow gloated. “We’ll snatch it as it rises,” said Green, “when the colors are still fresh and creamy.” The Blue Goblin cackled, “Look at the roots dangling from the walls. They’re straining to hear our plans. A lot of good it will do them, or their friend the Rainbow.” Finally, exhausted by their scheming, the goblins fell asleep. Outside, the moon shone on the mirror-like surface of the water, and its magical light was reflected into the cave. Then all seven goblins had a wonderful dream- the same wonderful dream about the paradise of Rainbow land, where all you had to do was lie on your back and open your mouth, and the most succulent colors dripped down your throat.
Indigo wept, Blue cursed, Yellow stumbled, Orange cried out, “Treachery!” Violet tumbled to the grass, Red raged; but the more they thrashed about, the more tangled they became in their own lassoes, until they had snarled themselves into a grunting, groaning mass of goblins on the ground. As they lay there helplessly, a flood of colors poured forth from all the flowers of the meadow. “The flowers,” screamed Blue Goblin, “the flowers!” He had suddenly remembered the dangling roots he had made fun of in the cave. Through their roots the flowers had heard the goblins’ plans, and thy had devised a counterplan to save the Rainbow. The moment the attack was launched, the flowers had drained the colors of the Rainbow into their petals, and as soon as the goblins became ensnarled in their own lassoes, the petals had let loose the deluge. So the goblins drowned in the colors they had come to steal, and no one in the Valley wept for them. The Rainbow itself was reborn more magnificently than ever. Out of gratitude, it lifted up the flowers that had saved it and transformed them into glittering dragonflies and butterflies and splendidly plumed birds. But since that time the Rainbow has become more cautious. Now when it arches across the sky it is careful not to touch the earth anywhere. No matter how you try to sneak up on it, you can never come to the place where it begins or ends.
The dream went on and on, the greedy goblins drank and drank, and at dawn, just as their bellies were about to burst, they were awakened by a distant clap of thunder. The Goblins sprang to their feet and rushed to the mouth of the cave. “A Storm, a storm!” Red shouted. “Look how the wind is driving it toward us!” Orange cried. And all the goblins danced and pranced about in glee, for they knew that after the wildest morning thunderstorm comes the most beautiful rainbow. Yellow was so proud of his plan of attack that he went over it again, while each goblin tested his lasso. “Red, don’t forget that you must seize the left flank.” “And I move in the right,” the Violet Goblin burst out excitedly. Before the last roll of thunder had faded from the valley the goblins took up their pails and lassoes and marched single file out of the cave. The sight that greeted them when they reached the meadow took their breath away. The rising arch of the Rainbow, so rich with color and promise, almost blinded them. Trembling with excitement, Yellow finally managed to give the signal to attack. The goblins swung their lassoes around and around and hurled them into the sky. But in that same instant the Rainbow vanished, as if it had been swallowed up by the earth. The goblins were dumb-founded. Nothing like this had ever happened to them before. They stared up at their empty outstretched lassoes which a second later snapped back at them.
