Security

We manufacture the goods, ensure quality and arrange shipping and yet we don’t run away after sales. Our philosophy of long term business compels us to listen to customer’s feed back even after sales and we try our best to facilitate our customers in every possible manner even after the sales.

GSP+ NO DUTY

In 2014, Pakistan got GSP+ status. This means most of the clothing products from Pakistan are import duty free to Europe. 12% is a hell of a money to save here. Pakistan being our major production market, we pass on this benefit to our customers in Europe.

Responsibility

We are not agents. Instead we are manufacturers and traders. We take full responsibility of our products. It’s no secret that agents run away in times of conflict because their money or reputation is not at stake.

Technical Support

Our multicultural teams of merchandisers & designers located both in Sweden and Pakistan will make sure communication runs smoothly. In our team, we have people speaking Swedish, Finish, English, French, German, Czech, Urdu, Hindi and still adding more.

SCM

We have long term partnership with our freight forwarders. Together with that shipping knowledge and our factory on ground, we can offer you the complete supply chain solution. Staring from the design concept to the finish product in your warehouse or retail stores, you can count on us.

Consistent Pricing

It’s no secret that factories don’t have consistent pricing in Asia. When it comes to pricing, our team of textile engineers calculate the exact consumption of materials to determine the right prices for the specific product. This helps us build a sustainable relationship between our customers and raw material suppliers.

Sourcing

Our years of sourcing experience in both China and Pakistan markets has helped us create a trustworthy vendors base for raw materials. All our vendors are BSCI certified and our sourcing guys on ground are in continuous search for finding the right sources as per changing customer’s needs. Just tell us your collection’s theme and we’ll present you a variety of materials and styles to chose from.

Best Prices

About 60% exports from Pakistan are indirectly done by medium sized factories but they never get the credit for that. Because generally western buyers are working with bigger factories only. These big factories take orders and split to medium sized factories in the market. But here we are talking directly to you.

On Time Deliveries

From Pakistan there is only once a week sailing i.e. generally on weekends. Most of the factories are located at least 24 hours drive from the port city. This means, if you miss one day in catching coming weekend’s sailing, it might cause an added delay of one week to 10 days. Our merchandisers on ground are in continuous follow up with the shipping agents to avoid such delays. In order to meet urgencies we have built up a close network of air shipments. We have several times shipped from design to delivery in 5-6 weeks to the store.

Communication

Our multicultural teams of merchandisers & designers located both in Sweden and Pakistan will make sure communication runs smoothly. In our team, we have people speaking Swedish, Finish, English, French, German, Czech, Urdu, Hindi and still adding more.

We Care

As the member of BSCI & BEPI , we take full responsibility of social compliance.

One Stop Solution

We call it a myth that a knitwear factory cannot work on woven, or tops factory cannot make bottoms. It’s all about planning. We have introduced technology in the supply chain for better planning and quickly we can plan our lines for a big range of both woven and knitted products. That gives our customers a complete collection solution.

Digital/Fashion Steroids:

It’s our profound knowledge and expertise in the different areas of fashion that has made us more receptive to the challenges of the industry. We believe there is a grave need of another approach to the challenges of fast fashion industry. We need a supply chain which helps us design faster and easier. A place where creativity can be equally rewarding and satisfying. Our answer to this growing problem is the world’s first digital marketplace where fashion designers can license their work. It’s a place where fashion gets on Steroids. Put up your seat belts and let us take you on a ride to the future of fashion. We call it FashionSteroids!

CSR

Corporate Social Responsibility

To us at Outso it is important, that the values that the certificates stand for are appreciated by the very people whose lives they aim to improve. We wish to change the way the standards are perceived and bring upon a real change for the people working in the factories. Many of the certificates out there impose western standards upon the producing companies. We know the realities behind the scenes and have chosen to join BSCI & BEPI because their methods appreciates the ground realities.

“The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is a leading supply chain management system that supports companies to drive social compliance and improvements within the factories and farms in their global supply chains. BSCI implements the principle international labour standards protecting workers’ rights such as International Labor Organization (ILO) conventions and declarations, the United Nations (UN) Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and guidelines for multinational enterprises of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

The Business Environmental Performance Initiative enables companies to manage and improve the environmental performance of their global supply chain through a supported and tailored management system approach. BEPI uses industry best practices alongside practical technical expertise to support companies in developing supply chain visibility and meet the increasing environmental regulatory and stakeholder requirements. The basis of the BEPI Framework is built on the Global Social Compliance Programme (GSCP) Environmental Reference Tools, and it is also aligned with leading environmental standards such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)”.
