Danish company seeks manufacturer of nylon and cotton dog collars

REQUEST from Denmark, reference: BRDK20190708001, valid from 08-07-2019 untill 10-07-2020

  • Start date:
    8 juli 2019
  • End date:
    10 juli 2020
  • Summary:
    A Danish family business has designed a collection of dog collars and other accessories, made from nylon/cotton and is looking for a manufacturer in Eastern Europe, who can also source the materials.
  • Description:
    Started in 2018, the Danish family-owned business saw a gap in the dog collars and accessories market, and decided to launch their own line of comfortable, durable, yet beautifully designed dog accessories. They now have a collection of collars, leashes and bandanas in various colour and patterns. Currently, they sell online and via specialist dog products/food shops, dog grooming companies and pet shops.

    The products will be made of nylon/cotton, with leather and small and light aluminium rings included in the designs. Quantities will not be big in the beginning, but more designs will be added to the collection. Initially, 300 collars (in two designs and three sizes, altogether 300 pieces), 100-200 leashes and 50 bandanas, though these numbers can be somewhat increased if the price is right and the quantity becomes a factor.

    They are looking for a manufacturer in Eastern Europe who can source the required materials as the designers will not be supplying these. Ideally, the manufacturer should be able to treat the products with a water-repellent coating. However, if the manufacturer is not able to offer the water-repellent treatment, but delivers high quality products, is able to deliver smaller quantities at a reasonable price and can source the materials, then cooperation could still go ahead.
