Soak is a clothing sourcing agency, offering valuable services in garment development and trend forecasting.
To remain competitive, I help my customers to be able to adapt to changes flexibly and very quickly.
I focus on product and garment development, after being active in the field for more than 15 years.
Throughout the last 15 years, I have seen a high level of innovation and an enormous variety of applications characterize the textile industry. To remain competitive, I help my customers to be able to adapt to changes flexibly and very quickly.
This could be with market research, sourcing strategies or production planning. It goes without saying that textile know-how and consulting services will create bigger and better productivity and returns to your business.
I travel the world for inspiration that will breed new designs that meet our customer’s specifications. Our aim is to add value to our customer’s design teams and enhance their product, while keeping true to their brand identity.
I have agency partners specialised in outer- and sportswear pieces. This agency provides not only fantastic, efficient service, but also a technical team, facilities, sourcing, and knowledge of the products and materials.
I represent one of the largest production agencies in Portugal. I can offer a complete range of knits and wovens, from garments to accessories, and an integrated quality department present on each production site.
I have over 15 years of consultancy experience in this area of business and strive to achieve the following: develop, empower, enable and maintain. I source customer’s needs by providing the highest quality and timely deliveries from my suppliers. The strength of me and my partners is anchored in our technical teams, facilities, sourcing, and knowledge of the products and materials. My goal is focused development within our customer’s target budget. We work with you and carry out research to understand your needs and the needs of your customers.
By having a majority of the agencies I work with based in Portugal and Asia, I’m able to source production effectively and efficiently. We are able to manufacture small or big quantities in premium quality that best fit our customer’s price specifications. We provide our customers with the most suitable factories depending on their product and order.
With experienced and skilled on-site Quality Control teams, we are able to provide our partners with the visibility and control needed to measure the progress and quality of each order. Every detail is taken care of by my team.
We have experienced technicians who monitor and control the quality at factories and discuss with customers the technical developments and opportunities for gaining optimal efficiency. We ensure that all necessary tests of materials are done on time with reputable test institutes or internally.
We choose to work with Nicholas and Attias because of the great product- & production knowledge they have in making a sustainable garment with manufacturers that are specialists, who fit perfectly to our concept and the need of our customers. The eye for detail in our products distinguish us from the rest. That’s why it is so important that our manufacturers understand what we want or find solutions of how to manufacture in a commercial way. Nicholas and his team are the perfect link between us and the manufacturer in guiding us to develop & produce the perfect product with the perfect fit and with an on-time-delivery.
According to Colourful Rebel, a work day of Nicholas has 36 hours. Where does this man get his time and positive energy from? Nice to work with, has a lot of knowledge and always keeps his promises! He thinks very carefully about what suits our brand Colourful Rebel and has a huge passion for his customers. Just a very nice guy all around!
