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.
Our goal is to produce as earth and animal friendly as possible, with fair work conditions for all employees, whether that is Rotterdam, China or Portugal.
At Foekje Fleur we aim to be transparent about our production and partners. Please read more about the companies and people who produce our products in this page.
After graduating in both Design and Fine Arts, Foekje Fleur found her way by making objects that are functional and yet, give space for thought.
Foekje spends most of her time in the studio in Rotterdam working on new projects. Follow foekje on instagram @foekje_fleur to see what she is up to from day to day.

middle kingdom porcelain
jingdezhen, china / washington, usa
Bo Jia and Alison Alten established the Middle Kingdom kiln in Jingdezhen to broaden porcelain traditions for a modern audience. Middle Kingdom’s highly trained artisans work at a modern facility designed in the regional style near the site of the imperial kilns. Foekje has been collaborated with the Jias on the Bottle Vase Project for a long time.
For Bubble Buddy Foekje collaborated with GoodtoGive, a Rotterdam based company that specializes on fair & sustainable corporate gifting. Even when Foekje wasn’t too sure about Bubble Buddy’s potential, they encouraged her to move forward and sold the first 15000 Bubble Buddies.
Ramzi and his team are taking care of our stock and pack our parcels every day. The last parcels leave at 23:00 for a next day delivery, so if your parcel arrives the next morning, this is because Ramzi is super fast.

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.”
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. “

“Proeven van het leven van een product ontwerperster met een eigen bedrijf. Heb je een vraag dan staan ze altijd voor je klaar, zelfs na je stage.”
