A business opportunity
We're offering retailers a chance to share in our success - to display and sell our iridescent shot cottons with minimal stock commitment and negligible risk.
Quilters and sewers worldwide have come to love the Oakshott brand for its colour palettes and quality. They want to see with their own eyes the true glory of the colours and feel for themselves the softness of the drape. They appreciate the endorsement of a retailer who they know and trust.
This is why we're looking for retail partners who can bring the Oakshott experience to the users and introduce our collections to a wider audience.
