The Dutch brand is known for its sportwear with stylish, feminine designs and technical performance. The SME wants to extend its product range with women’s knitwear sweaters . The company is looking for a manufacturer of private label knitwear who is willing to operate in the framework of a distribution service agreement.



The SME based in The Netherlands is active since 2014 and well known for its sportswear brand. In order to extend their market and meet new demand the company is looking for manufacturers of women’s woollen knitwear. The materials used for the knitwear sweaters must be natural wool blend with cashmere (pills less than 100% cashmere), merino or a blend with merino cashmere, all of a high quality standard.

Preferably all materials and dyes used are certified according to Global Organic Textile (GOT), OEKO-TEX (a certification that textile products have undergone laboratory testing for a wide range of harmful substances, and that the content of those substances remains below the limit values established by the Oeko-Tex Association), Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)

Initial order quantities depend on the manufacturer capacity, but the Dutch SME can handle a minimum of one colour of 250 and perhaps other colours in the same or lower numbers. The sizes needed by the SME are small (S ), medium (M ), large (L) and not directly necessary extra-large (XL).
