Get Your Brand On

 

 

The market trend dubbed retailpocalypse is transpiring at an alarming rate as we head in to May 2018, and the retail casualties are piling up.  Meahwhile, interest in meditation and yoga is still growing rapidly.  The inspiring, stylish design details that adorn the places where people go to chill out—like meditation and yoga studios, are  adorning living rooms, and are as poplular as ever in fashion. According to Wikipedia, the main factor cited in the closing of retail stores in the retail apocalypse is the shift in consumer habits towards online commerce. While the retail trend shifts from brick-and-mortar shops to online sales, not all types of shops are closing.  While Toy’s R Us just closed all 735 of its U.S. stores, Build-A-Bear Workshop remained as the only major toy retailer surviving the retail apocalypse.  Could it be that shops that offer more tailored, customized products are in a better positon to thrive?  We believe that this is a time for differentiation and standing out in the market if there ever was one.  Are you taking steps to set yourself apart?

At Great Eastern Imports, we’re here to help with a solution:  Custom products that we can deliver to you with low MOQ’s, and quick turn-around times.

For malas, wrist malas, shamballa bracelets and wrap bracelets

Perhaps your customers prefer a certain color scheme or combination of stone, wood, or seed beads.  With our large variety of (over 180) bead types and versatility in mixing & matching them, you’ll definitely find what you’re looking for here!  With our low minimum quantity order requirements (2 pieces per bead type & 10 pieces total), you can get a variety of different bead types in each of these products, to help you hone in to find out which ones sell best with your customers.  We’re also completely capable of handling larger orders, so even if you’re a large established brand, we can produce the quantities you need in a short time frame.  Our normal turn-around times for orders of up to 500 pieces is 10-14 days.

For our textile products:

We have a wide variety of (over 35) colors available in the cotton canvas material we use to make our meditation cushion covers.  We can also make custom designed tote bags and rakusus cases, or you can choose from our selection of popular designs.  Did you know that we can do custom tags (with your logo) and/or embroidery on all the meditation cushion covers, tote bags, mala bags and rakusu cases we sell?

For jewelry type items;

If you don’t see what you’re looking for in our catalog, and you’d like to make something special, we can create custom rings, earrings, pendants, amulets, or cuff links for your design!  All you have to do is send us your artwork or graphic files, and we’ll create a new mold, model and master (prototype) for your piece, which we can use to produce them whenever you want to (re)order.  The set-up charges for making them is fairly minimal, so you don’t have to worry about spending a fortune to test out your designs.  And, the minimum quantity order for the production of your pieces is also reasonable.  For rings, we require a minimum of 5 pieces per size, and for earrings, pendants, etc., you can order with a minimum of just 10 pieces total per design.  We can make them for you in all the different metal types available, and they can also be finished with plating, oxidation, or enamel.

So you have your own brand?

The Wrist Game

Men’s and women’s beaded bracelets are an ongoing trend, in and throughout the different sectors of style and fashion that are currently prevalent worldwide.  As an adaptation to the usual malas, wrist malas (in varying designs) and Shamballa bracelets we’ve been selling (over 10 years in the game), we can also make them in combinations of different stone, wood, seed, and metal beads.  We really enjoy coming up with new styles and designs, which we’re obliged to test!  We use them, wear them (you’re welcome, our pleasure), to see how they work, how they look, how they feel, and how they endure, and then find ways to improve them!  We don’t feel that fashion and spirituality need to be separate, and yet we’re always aware of the problem of spiritual materialism (aka- how “spiritual” products are marketed as a solution to the first noble truth, dukkha).  Hard pill to swallow for retailers, I know, but let’s not try to win the game by foiling the audience.  Let’s win the game by inspiring wakefulness!  And the good news is that we are seeing a lot of really great advertising and promotions throughout the retail sector in the yoga/boho/spirituality marketplace.  The mindfulness and yoga revolution is in full force folks!  Take a look at what we’re vibing on these days, and let us know what we can do to help you get some of our products into your store.  As always, our focus is on custom designs for wholesale supply, so please feel free to come to us with your own designs, and we’ll make them!  So, dear shop owners, save yourself the time, energy, labor, etc., and order them from us!  Sign up to be a retailer by filling out the request on our website at greateasternimports.com/customer/account/create.

Wrist Malas, Power Bracelets and Shamballa Macrame Bracelets in Pop Culture

Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it … Vogue!  If you put the words “iced out” before the description of any stone bead type, you’re sure to get more sales! Seriously though, the popularity of wrist malas and macrame, Shamballa bracelets is soaring, due to their use by hip-hop/rap stars, models, actors/actresses, etc.  which are being shown in the media more often these days.

We’re happy to announce our new line of macrame Shambhala/Shambala/Shamballa bracelets; true to their origin, with gemstone beads and precious metals (not the clay beads with CZ’s glued onto them, that many shops are selling).! All are available for you to custom order for your store.  These are just a few examples of what we’ve been up to.  So if you’re not already on the band-wagon, contact us about ordering some right away (email sales at greateasternimports.com).  Wholesale only… thanks!
