About us

We have been making corporate clothing for over 20 years and have always had a passion for textiles. Rouwdoeken was founded in 2019 by José Glas as a result of an inspirational funerary fair where Rouwdoeken had its very first scoop.

Our team


We are located at De Droogmakerij 20E in Heiloo. Here we design and produce custom-made burial shrouds, coffin skirts, pillows and accessories.

We listen carefully to every request and would like to invite you to our workshop. So that you can view our range of funeral textiles and we can give you a demonstration of how to fold a mourning cloth. All without obligation.
