With six locations on three continents, we can offer you the complete solution. All of our offices work according to high international standards. We’re industry experts and have extensive knowledge of all products, quality standards, regulations and all import and export documents. You can trust that we’ll deliver exceptional products on time and keep you up to date throughout the process.
Our talented design teams in Europe and around the world thrive on creating fashion-forward pieces that your customers will respond to. They forecast trends and propose inspiring mood boards, as well as specific designs, including you in the design process.

FAST & RELIABLE
We understand that time is, and always will be, important. We pride ourselves on being the fastest service-providing fashion importer in the industry. We’ll even confirm a price within 24 hours of receiving your request: a luxury allowed to us by having offices in each of our production countries across three continents.
For short turnarounds, we can, if so required, deliver stock within 1 to 2 weeks (depending on the destination).
STOCK MANAGEMENT & NOS
We also create, produce, finance and manage Never Out of Stock (NOS) programs for major retailers. We make sure these products, their development, colors and packaging stay up-to-date in every way.
SINGLE POINT OF CONTACT
We understand that working with a partner across the world requires a solid set-up based on trust and clear processes. We will set up a single point of contact that works with you throughout the process. Together, we’ll discuss your requests, offering advice that ensures high quality and cost-effectiveness at every stage.
The Beconnected group handles every request with care, selecting the best production country to deliver your order.
COMPETITIVE PRICES MAXIMIZE YOUR MARGINS
Because of the volume of garments we produce (more than 40 million items per year) and our ability to check prices in many different countries, we can secure prices that maximize your margins.
We upgrade the value of your merchandise, always acting as if we’re the end consumer. For example, as most of our factories are OEKO-TEX® certified, we can supply OEKO-TEX® hangtags for your garments.

Good to know - import your goods duty free from Africa
In 2014 we opened Beconnected Africa: a new sourcing and trading office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to support the sub-Sahara region. Several huge vertical set-ups are already present in Ethiopia, where there’s a growing economy and access to resources such as cotton fields. The country is part of AGOA, allowing duty-free imports into the USA, Canada, Europe, China and India, and provides GSP-A Certificates of Origin as official documentation.
Beconnected has the only officially registered sourcing and buying organization with western management in Ethiopia.
The passionate African and international team is guided by our European partner who has more than 33 years of experience in Asia’s textile industry. Simona Marta Grava and her team provide excellent support on entering the East African regions.
Beconnected Africa – Addis Ababa offers the same international standards and attention to detail that customers receive in all of our offices, such as access to a European design team, quality control, order follow-up, sampling, pre-approval of materials, logistics and more. These standards are further enhanced by local knowledge of the African industry.
