India Visit – new furniture lines for Autumn 2010 and our next SKSN donation

Wednesday, 3 March 2010

Simon has just returned from India this week where he was visiting our suppliers and SKSN School. The main purpose of this trip was to work the next batch of new designs for Sheesham furniture which is due for release in the UK in September 2010, as well as to see the latest developments at SKSN School and pledge our next donation for this year.


This was the first visit of 2010 after our two successful visits in 2009.  These regular trips help us to sustain our excellent relationship with our suppliers as well as oversee the development of our new lines.  We also use the visits to monitor production techniques for our hard wood furniture, visit sub contractors premises and improve quality control measures.  Simon was also lucky enough to lend a hand in loading one of our latest furniture shipments being prepared to leave the factory!


 It's not just fun in the sun


During the visit to SKSN School, we pledged our next donation of £5,700, which will help cover the cost of shoes and socks for all pupils, toiletries, six months medical supplies and 10 days food supplies.   Our continued involvement with the school started in 2008 and is two-fold, offering direct donations from our company profits and also working to set up long-term trade links to provide a future earning capacity for the children of SKSN.  Follow this link to see our new Kota Cushions  – just one of the great ranges of cushions in production at the vocational training centre at SKSN School.


It wasn’t all hard work though and Simon was lucky enough to be in Jodhpur to celebrate Holi, the festival of colour, with the SKSN crowd who got him well and truly decorated...we’re not sure how quickly that pink paint is going to wash off!
