This eco-conscious Japanese company developed a set of textiles that are manufactured with the lowest possible environmental impact for the planet. The range of products goes from towels and bed linen to scarves and baby clothes for example.
With the raise of interest of EU consumers for such type of products, the company aims to expand in the EU. A distribution agreement or a commercial agency agreement will be achieved with the relevant partner sharing the same ethics ideal.
The Japanese company was established in 1953 and has been in the business of designing, manufacturing and selling organic textiles such as towels, scarves, bed linen, interior fabric, baby clothes, bath mats, blankets, etc...
Their aim is to provide the safest and eco-friendliest organic textiles to customers around the world using their in house developed weaving technology powered by 100% wind energy.
The organic cotton used in their products was grown on farms where no fertilizers nor any agricultural chemicals were used for at least 3 years.
Actually, the company has retail and online stores that carry its products in Canada, USA, Hong Kong, China, and Australia. Rich of this international presence, the company is now approaching the EU market.
The company believes that European consumers have become increasingly ‘ethical’, ‘conscious, and ‘mindful’ with regards to the products they buy. Many consumers now want to do the right thing and make choices which are less harmful to the environment and society in general. As a result, the Japanese company is looking for partners in the EU that believe in the same ideals and want to fill the needs of these consumers.
The potential EU distributor or sales agent will be engaged in a distribution services or commercial agency agreement. To support the EU partners, the Japanese company is willing to provide promotional documents such as product catalogs, brochures, product information cards, promotion tools, as well as specific knowledge training via video conferences, online meetings, and, if necessary, even sending Japanese staff for face to face meetings and hands-on training.
Conscious about the impact such type of manufacturing may have for the planet, the Japanese company made its best to limit it providing products with below advantages.
1. The used cotton in all their products is certified 100% organic and non-GMO (non-genetically modified organisms).
2. All products have been certified with the strictest safety standard in the world.
3. The towels are produced using 100% wind generated renewable energy. This leads to a lower carbon footprint due to the manufacturing processes compared to competitors.
4. The towels are hypoallergenic largely due to the absence of any chemical additives; this is especially beneficial for people with chemical sensitivities.
5. The company has a low effluent discharge with just 14ppm COD (chemical oxygen demand) which means they are basically discharging clear cleaned water.
6. A "Made in Japan" quality with excellent customer feedback.
7. The company’s products are manufactured in a fair trade and ISO 22000 certified factory that eliminates harmful chemicals from the entire manufacturing process. The company aims to protect the health of the farmers, agricultural and factory workers that are involved in the manufacturing chain.
The Japanese company is seeking partners in the EU willing to function as distributors and commercial agents. These partners should have connections to relevant sectors for this kind of products.
Examples of such sectors are the hospitality industry, including hotels and spas, retails for baby clothing, as well as companies experienced in selling finished products to either online shops or brick and mortar shops.
The agreement could cover only one or more products according to the partner's expertise and interest.
