This is a unique opportunity to acquire a long-established e-commerce business with an exceptional reputation for its high-quality, ethically-made women's and menswear.

Focusing on one product made well, the company has built a reputation for timeless wardrobe essentials made to last: simple high-quality t-shirt and sleepwear collections crafted in the company's exclusive luxury organic cotton.

The company has been producing slow fashion favourites long before it was topical or cool. The company offers conscious free shopping, honouring the people and natural resources involved in making their organic cotton t-shirts. All the company's t-shirts are GOTS certified and come with an Ethical promise of long life and responsible manufacture, which is at the heart of what the business stands for.

The business was originally established in 2003 but ceased trading in 2011 when their original organic yarn supplier closed. The company was relaunched in 2014 and has continued to grow and attract a loyal (and growing) customer base. Customer repeat orders account for 40% of all orders, with outstanding customer feedback and 5* reviews.

Most sales are through their e-commerce website, but they have strong links with selective drop ship and corporate wear partners.

This exciting business is offered on a relocatable basis, which means the new owners will have plenty of flexibility.

The sale includes the website, CRM, client database, social media presence, and introduction to existing dropship and corporate wear partners.

The company has a long-established European manufacturing partner. The founder's and manufacturing partner's preference would be for this relationship to continue. However, the founders understand that a new owner may have a preferred manufacturer, which is acceptable as long as the company's core values are maintained. The gross product margin has remained consistent at 56%, and the company has a reliable and transparent supply chain already in place. The t-shirt journey, through this supply chain, is shared on the company's website, and this transparency plays a vital role in building customer trust within the slow fashion market.

The current owners are happy to offer an initial transitional period.

This is a superb opportunity to acquire a well-established business within the fast-growing sustainable clothing market.

The founders are retiring and have not actively pursued new customers over the last year. Despite this, the company has continued to grow, which presents opportunities to build upon the business's firm foundations.

Since 2014, the business has focused on its online presence. So there is vast potential for expansion into new product areas, developing retail, expanding drop shipping, and designing a proactive marketing strategy. The quality of their t-shirts lend themselves perfectly to corporate wear. The company already provides t-shirts to a Michelin star restaurant, so expansion into corporate wear is already a tested opportunity.

The business has a fully functional website with underutilised content management in place. Despite limited interaction, the company has a popular following on social media, which presents a chance to expand customer outreach.
