We don't think of our job as "sales" at Libeco; we are inspired by our customers and how they use our products in their interior projects. We feel rewarded when their businesses succeed and they love the product we produce. We take pride in working for an eco-conscious, socially-responsible, global brand that is still based on artisan-production with its heritage always in mind.

Based out of the NY office; full-time, salaried position with full benefits package including 401(k), healthcare with dental and vision, life insurance, product discount and monthly MetroCard.
College education required; experience in the luxury market, retail or wholesale environments is a big plus. Multi-tasking, strong follow up and customer service skills are a must. Good phone manner and writing skills required.
About Libeco Home, a divison of Libeco Inc.
We have been passionate about linen since 1858, initially as a trading house in Kortrijk, and later in Meulebeke when the weaving mill was established. Our belief in flax and linen as a sustainable premier product has only grown throughout the years. We have been carbon-neutral since 2014 and take pride in our strong commitment to sustainability. We have a piece goods division, Libeco Fabrics; and a finished goods line, Libeco Home, under which this job falls.
Our focus on a single raw material has led to extensive specialization in a range of markets and a renown position internationally: we are among the largest linen weaving mills in Europe.
Our products under the Libeco Home brand label are designed and produced in-house, in Belgium. They are inspired by the Belgian lifestyle, aesthetics from nature, and produced by the artisan weavers and sewers who've been working at the mill for generations. We are a 5th generation authentic Belgian Linen weaving mill and think of linen as the fiber of the future.
