Our Deadstock Challenge
As a small company with medium order amounts, we are often experiencing challenges with minimum order quantities (MOQ) with our suppliers. As a result we are obliged to order more material than what we can use as well as pay extra surcharges. We find it counter intuitive that suppliers of responsible materials will push their buyers to overconsumption - but that’s the reality we are dealing with.
The MOQ-issue leads to a material deadstock problem. To manage this issue, we have added smaller items to our assortment that we develop from our own deadstock fabrics. Currently we have added Steve the Sleeve and Miley Toilet Bag, and we keep exploring options to collaborate with other brands in order to make our deadstock useful.
