As I grew the Rime Knits brand in 2008, this involved outsourcing and expanding operations. The product development timescale became much more rapid, with larger quantities at a higher quality needed. Over this time, I researched and established relations with multiple manufacturers overseas to create unique and limited products that appealed to our target market. Overseeing production from beginning to the end, I employed many local individuals and other small businesses to help me maintain product quality to deliver the finalised goods to our end users. Each year I continue to work with these partners to develop our relationship and continually improve on our last batch of products so that they become more durable, comfortable, longer lasting and environmentally sustainable.
