Summary

Summary: 
A Spanish company designing, producing and commercializing their own collections of shoes for women, in the segment of medium-high and high quality, seeks partners providing distribution services. The company is also interested in taking production orders, under manufacturing agreements. The company is located in Alicante, one of the most well-known footwear manufacturing clusters across the EU.

Description

Description: 

This is a young family-run Spanish ladies’ shoes company, which is made up with staff having more than two decades of experience in the footwear industry. In the past, some of the staff worked for bigger footwear companies, but they relied on their capabilities and know-how in designing, producing and commercializing ladies’ shoes to start their own business. The company’s reputation is built on its original style, business ethics and values. The production system blends artisanal technics and modern equipment, which results in high quality and exclusive products. The company is able to produce small batches, on-demand, and the whole production is carried out 100% in Spain, at the company’s own premises.

The company can provide complete collections of casual and smart designs of sandals, shoes, ankle boots and high boots. They can take small orders, so the company is an ideal partner for independent fashion retailers, such as boutiques, concept stores, or specialised online marketplaces. They have a stable base of customers in Spain, so they want now initiate the expansion into new markets.

Therefore, they require distributors. The ideal partner would be an established company already sourcing fashion items (garments, shoes or accessories) to independent retailers, as described above, with a good client portfolio. Anyway, business proposals coming from companies distributing to other types of outlets will be equally welcome and professionally regarded.

In addition, the company is also willing to get production orders, under manufacturing agreements, from companies already operating in the fashion industry, such as garments or clothing manufactures, looking for ladies’ shoes to complement the textile collections, or in need to expand the current product range by incorporating shoes in the catalogue.

The Spanish company prefers to work with its own brand in both types of agreements, distribution and manufacturing. However, it is not closed to requests for incorporating a different brand on its products, which will be studied on a case-by-case basis.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
Distribution agreement: The Spanish company is looking for distribution services. The partner sought should preferably work with a stable portfolio of domestic independent fashion outlets across the country (fashion boutiques, concept stores, on-line marketplaces specialised in fashion, etc.). Anyway, business proposals coming from distributors having market targets different than independent fashion outlets will be equally regarded. The Spanish company prefers to promote its own brand through the distribution services. However, there might be flexibility in the incorporation of an external brand on its shoes. It depends on many factors, so it will be dealt on a case-by-case basis. Manufacturing agreements: The company is also offering production capacity for manufacturers and providers of textile fashion items (clothing, garments, etc.) and/or accessories. The Spanish company can be a good partner for companies interested in widening the range of products on offer, complementing their catalogue with stylish shoes and a smart brand. When the textile partner requires manufacturing agreements to develop its own brand and style of ladies’ shoes, the Spanish company will cooperate with the textile partner in designing, prototyping and producing its own collections.
