Product Design & Sourcing

Where design and sourcing meet

About this department

One of the most inspiring departments at De Eekhoorn is surely Product Design and Sourcing. If you work in this department, you will be closely involved in the development process of all our products and new collections. This is incredibly versatile for us! In our own factory in Zwaagdijk-Oost many articles are produced, but we also design many products that are made in the Far East. All designs are conceived and sketched by the Product Design department and together with the Category Management department all ideas are outlined and followed up.


Our team 

This department is divided over the different locations. The design team works at the location in Zwaagdijk-Oost where they are close to the production process in the factory. The Category Management team works from the location in Hoorn, where they have a lot of contact with all sales colleagues who will eventually sell the products. You work in a small team with very short lines of communication and this ensures that there is plenty of room for your own initiatives. Inspiration everywhere!
