Happy New Year January 01 2015
Happy New Year!!
As our new years resolution we have decided to start a blog to keep all our customers informed of the Manzoni Story.
2014 was a huge year for us - to summarise,
1) We opened our own factory in India. This is really exciting development for us as we are one of the few foreign owned leather handbag factories in India. Having our own factory allows us to make what we want, when we want and how we want. Our quality of our handbags has increased tremendously. Over the next few posts I will be giving you a tour and showing you what we are so excited about.
2) We have are selling direct! After 20 years as a wholesaler and after 1000's of requests to buy direct we have released our retail website in 2014. Now one year later retail represents 30% of our business and is growing daily.
3) Manzoni has gone international. We are now available in over 20-30 stores in Japan. In August last year we were invited to exhibit in the international Mipel Fair in beautiful Milan, Italy. We had a great result with confirmed orders from Japan. The following month in September we exhibited at Fashion Access in Hong Kong with even more orders taken and further interest. Please let us know when and where you start to see us worldwide.
4) In 2015 we are exhibiting in Paris, Milan, New York, Sydney, Hong Kong & Tokyo. This is all before April. I will keep you posted of our travels live.
So keep checking back for new posts and give us comments.
