French designer and distributor of cashmere clothings is seeking to cooperate with European knitting factories under manufacturing agreements
The French company specialized in the online sale of cashmere clothes designs its own models. Today, the products are manufactured in Asia but the company decided to relocate the production to Europe.That is the reason why the company is searching for manufacturers able to produce cashmere clothing under private label. The agreement can include sourcing of the cashmere yarn by the partner or not. In this case, the French company will provide it.
The company is a French family business located in South of France. It presents itself like a « brands developer». For years, the company designs 100% cashmere clothings with a classic and elegant style and 100% leather shoes under numerous brands. The company distributes its creations almost exclusively online through its own websites created for each brand and through full prices, flash sales (websites offering a single product for sale for a period of 24 to 36 hours) and marketplaces such as Veepee, Showroom, Zalando,… Its products can also be found in some shops, because they are very successful with retailers met during trade fairs. In addition to this activity, the company is a distributor of other brands, including a well-known American brand for which it is the exclusive distributor in Europe. Its main customers are located in France, Italy, Spain and Germany. Today the company has its products manufactured in Asia. For several months, it has been thinking about repatriating its production to Europe or to countries close to Europe. The latest events related to COVID convinced the company that a less distant place of production was becoming an obvious choice. That’s why the company is looking for new partners able to do the knitting of cashmere sweaters for men, women and children, based in Europe or countries close to Europe. The company offers two options :
the partner provides the quality yarn and manufactures the sweaters under private label.
and/or the partner manufactures the sweaters under private label with the cashmere yarn provided by the French designer.
A manufacturing agreement will be signed.
