about foekje fleur

We like to design attractive and colourful products that seem playful at first sight but are in fact inspired by serious topics like environmental pollution. We hope our products allow you to make a small change every day.

Our goal is to produce as earth and animal friendly as possible, with fair work conditions for all employees, whether that is Rotterdam, Delft, Italy, Portugal or China.

We are also agent for Quirky Carrots and maybe more fun and sustainable brands in the future.

Judith van Lamoen
3rd year bachelor product design at Willem de Kooning academy

“Foekje betrekt je als stagiaire erg goed bij alles wat ze doet, waardoor deze stage ook een erg goede voorbereiding is op het leven na de WdKA. Zeker studenten die naast het creatieve proces ook geïnteresseerd zijn in de zakelijke kanten van een eigen bedrijf, kunnen hier heel veel leren.”

Alischa Kilburg
Master applied art and design at University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf

“During my internship at Foekje Fleur I discovered the whole process in a design studio. While giving me a lot of responsibility I travelled to a tradeshow to Paris (Maison et objet) and got into contact with new customers. I learned everything about orders, invoices, production, shipping, launching a new product or photoshooting. Foekje and me discussed ideas for new products and packaging. And I even found myself a nice family far from home. A great allround-internship which made me feel confident to start my own business. “
