Seeks partners for next phase of expansion


SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – Media OutReach – 8 December 2017 – Sol Sana, a leading Australian leather footwear label, today announced that the company is continuing its expansion in Asia by securing further distribution networks and sales agents.

Founded six years ago, Sol Sana has grown from strength to strength through its click and mortar strategy. Sol Sana leather footwear has a strong focus on clean minimal designs, quality craftmanship, rich leathers and environmentally friendly materials.  Today, Sol Sana footwear is available online at sol-sana.com.au, (and in the USA on sol-sana.com) in departmental stores such as David Jones (Australia), Bloomingdales, ShopBop, Nordstrom (USA), Robinsons (Singapore), Harvey Nichols (Hong Kong), independent retail stores and through distributors. Sol Sana is also available via leading global e-commerce retail sites Amazon.com, Asos.com, TheIconic.com and Zalando.com.

Michael Shandler, CEO of Sol Sana said, “For the past few years, we have seen a growing demand for our footwear in Asian markets. The time is right for us to bring in new partners to help take our brand to the next stage of development. Our continued expansion to Asia is key to the company’s continued international strategy. It is an important milestone in our strategy to share Sol Sana with a broader, global customer base.”

Sol Sana plans to double its sales in Asia in the next three years to five years through an expansion of its Sol Sana brand and a growing distribution base in new and existing markets that includes both online and retail stores. Michael added, “We are seeking strategic partners and investors to support us as we embark on our next exciting phase of growth and expansion.”

The brand has recently appointed Primer Group of Companies, which will now manage the brand’s distribution into the Philippines.  A fast-growing company known for expanding premium consumer brands, Primer Group will launch the Sol Sana holiday 17/18 collection as a continued step in Sol Sana’s global growth. Primer Group was selected as not only do they share the passion for the Sol Sana brand, they are experienced professionals in the core of Southeast Asia.  Sol Sana also has distributors in Japan, Israel and South Korea.

The company has also appointed R3D Global as its strategic investment relations advisers, announcing that it is seeking investment partners in Asia to support its international expansion.

Besides Asia, market demand for Sol Sana footwear has also risen sharply as the brand expands its sales and distribution partnerships globally.  Earlier this year, Sol Sana appointed sales agents in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg.
