Elmau’s Inventory Philosophy  

Philosophy: Availability is the name of the game              

We choose to import merchandise based on our projections rather than on buyer’s requests. We hold substantial inventory of ready-to-print basic garment styles in all age groups in many fashion and basic colors. Our system is built in such a way that we are able to satisfy quick turnaround for hot markets and impulsive demand patterns within 24-48 hours.

Elmau’s Overseas Operations

At its core, Elmau is known for building strong business relationships with highly qualified manufacturing facilities worldwide but especially in Bangladesh, China, and Vietnam. We always ensure to have quality control staff onsite as well as pro-active Social Compliance staff that are always preparing for WRAP or BSCI audits. Finally we ensure that follow-up and maintenance of compliance is always respected between audits.

Elmau’s Creative Design

Elmau’s outside-the-box mentality is embedded deep within the roots of the company. We continually strive to create and execute high-end products and designs for affordable price points. Our in-house design team has an extensive understanding of the latest techniques in designs and screen-printing. We are always sure to keep a bank of licensor pre-approved and ready-to-print designs so that we are ready to cater to any request that comes our way.
