Once the fabrics are made and ready from production, they are transported by road to Denmark, where we have our warehouse and distribution facility. Here the fabrics are quality checked again, they are bolted, packed and prepared to be shipped to our resellers and other customers, which counts a range of small and sustainably founded fashion designers. 

We have a very high focus on balancing the act of only producing what we need, but also to have our collections in stock. We want to serve our customers with a very short lead time, but we do not over-produce in order to do so. We have a continous flow of production, so we can adjust and balance the production according to demand.
