Re-Imagining Supply-Chains

Build new partnerships for value, speed and purpose

The end of China-centricism

Fashion’s sourcing chains are changing forever. The challenge to find sustainable and long-term alternatives to China is an imperative.

New Sourcing Partners

The greatest hidden value in sourcing chains is in the ‘first mile’ closest to factories, materials and workers. Developing partnerships with factories can radically improve speed-to-market, significantly reduce risk and improve profitability.

Go Beyond the Environment

Earning and keeping the trust of customers will require addressing the environmental, social and economic dimensions of sourcing chains. Purpose and profit must be synchronized.

Re-wiring the Fashion Calendar

The ‘‘worn out ritual of seasonalities’’ needs to be replaced by a new system where value is created by fresh, frequent and fast design in season-less product flows

Connecting all modern industry players

This industry is known for its lack of transparency. ABANA makes it possible for modern players to use modern solutions to connect and partner painlessly.
