The Swedish startup launched about a year ago, with the business idea of offering an accessible way to make a fashion statement, by beautifully designed, light-in-weight plastic earrings.
Sales have been higher than expected and in order to meet demand the company is now seeking a partner who can offer a comprehensive solution from providing material to assembling the finished earring. The sought after partner should preferably be established in the European Union.
The Swedish company was founded in 2018, offering fashionable and light-in-weight plastic earrings. At the moment, the earrings are being assembled by hand by the founder and family, and friends. As the products are selling well, the company now rather urgently needs to find a manufacturer that can both source the material, as well as assemble the actual earrings.
Preferrably, a potential partner should be located in a country nearby Southern Sweden, as transportation and communication will be easier.
Currently the company sources material through a local printing house. The material that is being used is adhesive vinyl which allows for the striking design with light-in-weight, opaque and colourful pieces. The printing house uses 0.3 mm adhesive vinyl of the brand Oracle, Series 651, and presses two layers together on to a transparent liner to increase stability and thickness. The material is thereafter cut with a puncher in to the different shapes the earrings consist of. After receiving the punched sheets, the earrings are assembled in house, by hand. The pieces are held together with metal jump rings and a fish hook ear wire in silver. The only tools required are 2 pliers. Assembly time depends on earring size and is approximated to 10 minutes per pair. The procedure is simple after an introduction.
- Supplier of material with a wide colour range, such as adhesive vinyl, Oracle Series 651 or similar brand, or plastic material with similar properties, without PVC, for a more eco-friendly option.
- Depending on material choice, ability to affix adhesive vinyl to liner, into the finished sturdy material.
- Access to cutting/punch press capabilities.
- Ability to assemble the earrings by hand into a finished product.
- Quantity estimation: approximately 100 pcs/earring colour (around 1000 pcs/year in total)
The Swedish company is looking for a long-term business partner - preferably within the European Union - that can manufacture and supply the sought after light-weight plastic earrings.
The material used should preferably be light-weight, and as eco-friendly as possible.
