A small start-up from Copenhagen, Denmark with a background in textile design is looking for producers of bedclothes, using digital printing on cotton. The company is offering a manufacturing agreement.
The small start-up company was created in 2017 by a young designer from a textile and design college in Copenhagen, Denmark and has sufficient capital to launch their new collection of bedclothes for children.
The range comprises:
• A junior duvet set in size 100cm x140cm, with pillow 40cm x 45cm
• A baby duvet set in size 70cm x 100cm, with pillow 40cm x 45cm
The fabric must be organic cotton with either Oekotex 100, Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification or similar, using digital printing. Designs will be supplied to the manufacturer and all bedclothing will be reversible.
As the company is a small start-up business, they are looking for initial orders of 50 pieces of each set, which suggests that this will suit a small European textile company. The company is therefore offering a manufacturing agreement to a producer with the ability to produce in small volumes and who can source the fabric in certified organic cotton.
Although a start-up company, the designer has sufficient capital to launch production and sale of the products.
The designer has already made several contacts to boutiques specialising in children's clothing and bedclothes and believes there is a strong market for her designs.
The product appeals to a growing niche market in Scandinavia for organic cotton products for children, as part of a wider awareness of health and welfare issues. Companies able to supply this, are likely to find further orders in the future.
Cut / Make / Trim (CMT) manufacturer, preferably specialised in bedclothing with ability to source organic Oekotex 100 or GOTS cotton. The task would suit a European supplier due to the lower volumes but serious contacts from other regions will also be considered.
Only certified organic cotton will be accepted.
Sizes are optimised for the Danish domestic market and no alterations can be made to these specifications.
It is considered highly likely that the manufacturer will be using digital printing, although other alternatives may be considered if the same quality can be achieved.
A European manufacturer is preferred, though not an absolute requirement.
