Welcome to the Partnership: KLiNGEL Group

We are pleased to welcome KLiNGEL Group to the Textiles Partnership.

The KLiNGEL Group, headquartered in Pforzheim, is one of the largest multichannel distance sellers in Germany with numerous subsidiaries in other European countries. Fifteen fashion brands operate under its umbrella, including KLiNGEL, WENZ, MONA, MIAMODA, Babista, Happy Size, Vamos and Alba Moda. The company employs around 2,200 people.

The product portfolio includes textiles and shoes as well as electronics and hardware. Textiles are the company's most relevant product group.

The new partnership member aims to create transparency in the textile supply chain among its suppliers at Tier 1 (production of the end product) and Tier 2 (material and surface production, wet processes). In addition, the KLiNGEL Group is gradually expanding the use of sustainable materials. The company is also a member of Cotton made in Africa, amfori BSCI and the Leather Working Group.

As a multichannel distance retailer, the KLiNGEL Group will contribute its experience to the textile partnership and share its knowledge, including on supply chain management and traceability as well as on environmental and chemical management.   

The Chairman of the Management Board, Dr. Sven Axel Groos explains: "We want to find synergies with other partners and join forces with regard to improving social, environmental and economic conditions in supply chains. We are building on dialogue with other players in the textile industry to penetrate important issues that have not yet been satisfactorily resolved and to find suitable approaches."
