Summary: 
Italian start-up dedicated to the promotion of Montessori methods and tools looks for producers of fabric items for babies to be sold on their e-commerce platform. The purpose is to sign a long-term manufacturing agreement.

Description

Description: 

Itailan start-up operating in the baby care sector (Montessori metod) is looking for partners able to provide eco-fiendly and sustainable accessories. The start-up’s project is addressed to babies from 0 to 3 years old, and to all those who take care of them during their first three years.
Through the company’s web site (under construction) they intend, on one side, to spread the basics of the educational Montessori method, on the other side, they aspire to develop an e-commerce based on the sale of educational items made of wood, fabric, paper, natural rubber (all natural materials).
Each item has been conceived in response to those specific needs of the baby and toddler, in that particular period of life, according to the recognised pattern of development that children are expected to follow.
All the items that will be sold are organized in kits (based on age) in order to help parents, or whoever takes care of the child, to introduce the correct activity/object at the appropriate time.
In addition to the educational purpose of the project, the company wishes to make people much more aware of the duty they have, as adults, to preserve the environment in which the kids will grow.
To honor this eco-sustainability approach, the start-up is doing its best to offer all FSC (Forest Stewardship Council approved) wood and paper, many products made of orgànic natural fabrics and recyclable materials.
In this context the company is looking for tailor’s shops able to realize all fabric items (i.e. sensory panel, fabric cube, first sensory book, bath towel, sensory bags etc...) combining excellent quality work with competitive price. As the products are addressed to newborn and toddlers, a particular attention is directed to the research of a superb manufacturer and suitable fabrics. Ideal type of cooperation would be under a manufacturing agreement.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Cooperation sought: 
The starting order will be of 50 pieces for each item, in order to evaluate the market feedback (the total number is of approximately 17 items). It is a must, for the company, the high-quality manufacture together with competitive prices and the use of natural/orgànic fabrics specifically conceived for newborns/toddlers. The company will provide a pdf document with all products details (pictures, type of fabric, sizes etc.)
