LEARN ABOUT OUR DUTCH BRANDS

Year 1998 was the birth of a new way of relaxing. The Finnish designer Jukka Setala created a beanbag unlike any other. This beanbag was an instant hit and had grown into a lifestyle icon. In year 2002 Alex Bergman had bought the importing rights for the Benelux and the brand Fatboy was introduced in The Netherlands. In year 2003 Fatboy acquired the exclusive selling rights, which went above expectations.

An image was carefully chosen. A marketing strategy was drawn up. Playfulness and fun were combined with exclusive quality. The lounge trend had conquered The Netherlands, to which Fatboy smartly responded.

The unique Fatboy twist

Without a doubt our ultimate hero, but Faboy is more than a beanbag. Our collection has expanded into a diverse range. Iconic, qualitative and durable. Available in a broad color palette and many materials. From lamps and carpets to side tables, inflatable chairs and a two person hammock. Developed with one goal; escaping the daily routine with a big smile.

Expect the unconventional

Functionals offers a collection of furniture and home goods designed exclusively for us by innovative designers. Each has his or her distinctive perspective, but they share a bold aesthetic, commitment to craftsmanship, and attention to detail.

Design that answers needs, delights the eye and stands the test of time!

We are equally detail-driven when it comes to manufacturing, packaging, and delivering our products. Our products are made to last, so they are made well. Components are made in small, but highly specialized factories in Europe and Asia, and many are finished by hand. We do much of the assembling and all the shipping at our factory and showroom in the Dutch town of Goirle.

We launched Functionals as a webshop in 2009, with the Bonsai candleholder and Swivel Floor light. Our collection has grown to include tables, seats, lights, tableware, and accessories. We’ve also expanded beyond the web into retail shops across Europe and beyond. Whether you order a Functionals product online or buy one in a store, we hope to exceed your expectations.

Mindful enjoyment since 1879

Peeze wants people to mindfully enjoy drinking coffee and thus help increase pleasure in their lives. Peeze does this by supplying the very best coffee and complimentary products and carefully focusing on the needs of their target groups.

Peeze has developed into a contemporary company in the higher echelons of the coffee market. It is a special company because it continues to be one of the few autonomous companies among the 18 coffee refineries in The Netherlands. Peeze has managed to retain a special position by combining two worlds ; that of modern technology and intelligent innovations with authentic recipes and passion for craft.

Sustainability and quality throughout the whole supply chain

Peeze’s beans are roasted in one of the most environment friendly refineries in the world. Thanks to several sustainable decisions – ranging from re-using residual heat to the use of aluminum free packaging materials – Peeze has been able to make production activities 100% climate neutral. Peeze has adopted a special process of removing the chaff from roasted coffee beans, whereby 99% less water is being used due to intelligent cyclone technology.

In order to maximize flavor, Peeze only works with fresh beans. Each type of beans is roasted separately (single origin) and blended after roasting. Also the authentic double roasting process is adopted when refining the espresso blends (‘doppio testate’ in Italian language).

After blending the coffee beans are packaged oxygen-free in a special developed packaging which doesn’t contain any aluminum.

Peeze is the only coffee refinery in the Netherlands that supplies 100% certified coffee

All of Peeze’s coffee beans either feature the Rainforest Alliance label, the Max Havelaar label or the BIO organic label. This allows you and your guests to mindfully enjoy Peeze’s coffee. In addition, Peeze’s coffee is 100% climate neutral. The 100% climate neutral doesn’t only apply to the production process but also to Peeze as a company. The Fairtrade Carbon Partnership program (Max Havelaar) helps compensation to take place at the source (coffee farms).

Communitea – Sri Lanka’s high mountain tea with a story

Together with the farmers of Sri Lanka, Peeze has developed a unique Fairtrade certified tea collection named Communitea. Sri lanka is well known for its top quality Ceylon black tea grown on the slopes of its high mountains.
