H-OI Cooperates with Fabric Mill
H-OI increases supply chain transparency and speed through close cooperation with denim mill Prosperity in China.
Over the years transparency in the supply chain has become more and more important. Sustainability targets not only cover our vendors but also their pre-vendors. With Prosperity we have found a partner who takes environmental and social matters seriously. And, in addition, our close cooperation has resulted in further benefits for our customers: a transparent price and more speed.
Depending on the fabric, the following conditions can be agreed upon:
- Fixed prices for up to one year
- A permanent stock with a rolling forecast
This leads to:
- Fast fabric approval process since the approvals already take place at the mill and then go to various suppliers
- Stable prices
- Possible lead time reduction
- Consistent product appearance across manufacturers
