Success in Japan for Swedish Ljungberg Factory

In the days it became clear that Japanese Manas choose Swedish Ljungberg's Factory from 1834 as news of their collection for 2016.

- We launched Ljungberg's Factory on the Japanese market just a few months ago so we are naturally proud of this fine development we have had in such a short time, says Jonas Wåhlander, CEO and owner of Ljungberg's Factory. Manas is active in the design and furnishings and complements United Arrows, which already is a distributor for Ljungberg's Factory.

United Arrows is one of Japan's leading retail chains with over 250 stores aimed directly to the consumer market. Here is now home furnishings from Swedish Ljungberg's Factory sold in the form of bed linen, pillows and tablecloths but also new product groups such as kimonos and scarves have been launched with good results

Manas will present Ljungbergs Factory fabrics for about 2000 of Japan's top designers, architects and interior designers through the showroom in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya. Manas is the distributor of many exclusive brands such as Casa Armani, Mark Alexander and Kirkby Design. Ljungberg's Factory will begin launching elements from existing collections, including the famous Lustgården, Herbarium, Grazia Grande, Tallyho and Citrus Limon.

- The first order from Manas is extensive and should be doubled year 2 in the Manas sales plan so we look forward to see our Swedish patterns in many Japanese public places and homes, continues Jonas Wåhlander.

Ljungbergs Factory (tidigare Ljungbergs Textil) har tryckt textilier sedan 1834. Företaget har en lång historia av framgångsrika samarbeten med framstående designers som Stig Lindberg, Sven Markelius och Viola Gråsten. Sedan 2013 ägs företaget av Jonas Wåhlander som vill få företaget att växa genom bland annat produktutveckling och utvecklande av kollektioner, uppbyggda av en exklusiv mönsterskatt. Mönsterproduktionen för inredningstextil ska leva kvar, samtidigt som mönster för modeindustrin och andra nya användningsområden ska utvecklas. Målet är att skapa världsledande, ekologisk och hållbar svensk design – allt producerat i fabriken i Rydboholm utanför Borås.
