India Update – New furniture and textiles for spring 2012

Wednesday, 26 October 2011

Georgie and Alexandra have just returned from India following a very successful trip to catch up with our existing suppliers and to meet potential new suppliers.

During their visit, a ceremony took place with our furniture manufacturer to honour the new production unit that has just been completed. This new unit will be dedicated to mostly Myakka finishing stage. This will mean that the finishing will now be completed to a much higher standard as the facilities are purpose built to create a dust free environment and the quality can be easily monitored.

As part of the celebrations, Georgie and Alexandra each planted a Sheesham tree and rode camel’s back to the main factory. Georgie also had the important role of handing out sweets to all the workers who have taken a part in the production of the new unit.

Whilst at the factory the pair signed of over 20 new lines that will arrive in time for the spring catalogue. Most of these lines will be added to our flagship Mallani range but there will also be some new lines in the ever popular and constantly growing Hathi range.

During the visit Georgie and Alexandra met with our textile supplier who we met for the first time earlier in the year. More new lines were signed off including wall hangings, cushions, throws and footstools. These will also arrive ready to be featured in the spring catalogue.

SKSN School is always the highlight of any visit of the biannual trip. We are now the sponsors of the Vocational Training Centre (VTC). This means that every girl leaving SKSN School joins the VTC to give them all basic sewing skills. Those who excel will be able to use this skill to earn a living.
