OUR SUPPLIERS

Our factories are located in Southern China. We have sourced for them ourselves and have a direct communication with the managers, sales people and workers. There are no middle hands. Our designer and product developer do visits on a regular basis to check on working conditions, production process and simply just to maintain a good relation. Working hours are 8-10 hours. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is included as well as housing. The factories are closed 27-30 days per year due to National Holidays.

We sometimes get the question “why China?” Well, it is not a matter of lower costs, its a matter of quality. We simply haven’t found any factories close to our headquarters in Sweden, that have the same facilities and high quality machinery. Adding to that, we have a lot of customers that are based in Asia.
