A French company specialized in textile accessories (hats, gloves, scarves, umbrellas) is looking for commercial agents in Eastern Europe and especially in Poland.
Well established in France and in Western Europe, the company wants to develop his business in Poland and in the neighboring countries.
The French company is specialized in manufacturing textile accessories such as hats, caps, umbrella, gloves, scarves etc. Its collections are suited for men, women and children. It has more than 30 years of experience in this sector and is already involved in trans-national cooperation.
The company has a strong position on the French textile market for the distribution of its items collection towards supermarkets (Auchan, Casino, Leclerc…), textile specialists and famous brands in France like Kiabi or Orchestra, wholesalers as well as discounters.
The company proposes two collections a year. It also has its own showroom in Aubervilliers, a major textile hub in France, where it presents its Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter collections. These collections are designed by its in-house styling department. And they are sold under private labels in France but also in Belgium, Germany, Italia, Spain and Swiss.
Now this well-organised company wants to develop its activities in Eastern Europe and is looking for commercial agents especially in Poland.

The company has set up a subsidiary in China in 2004 employing 15 people for sourcing, samples development, orders follow up, quality control and logistic arrangement.
As the textile market is strongly competitive, the company has acquired a great reactiveness and pays particular attention to the respect of delivery times and the quality of its products. This is possible thanks to its centralized logistic system and its integrated quality control department.
