Stitching the spirit of the Aegean Coast into design

Among the Aegean shoreline of Turkey, people are known to live their life in peace, health and beauty. It’s easy to feel this spiritual environment affecting all moments in life. It’s this essence that makes the Blackspade brand so special.

The Blackspade collections are a result of this positive vibe and this inspiration forms the basis of all their products.

Their resources are in nature using cotton, silk, micro modal among others in their extensive underwear ranges. Combined with science, Blackspade meet the wants and needs of their customers helping women, men and children feel comfortable and confident everyday.

Whether it is the microfibre in their panties, silk blends in their camisoles or cashmere in their thermal, Blackspade is the perfect combination of natural fibres and technology.

Blending both the history of the fabric and the science of producing products that feel as if they would melt in your hands along with a fit like no other, the Blackspade brand has gone onto become a major producer, supplier and retailer in Europe.

On the back of their successful debut at the Melbourne Fashion Exposed event, Blackspade will return to the Fashion Exposed fold from 16-18 August at the Sydney Showground, Olympic Park.

Ender Narbay of Narkonteks, the company behind the Blackspade brand,  is interested in meeting with any Australian distributors looking to take on a new label. Please contact him directly if you are interested;

We took five to discover more about the Narkonteks company, their point of difference, and what buyers can expect from a visit to their stand at Fashion Exposed Sydney.

Tell us about the history behind the brand? When it was first started? Why? and how?

Our company Narkonteks, was founded in 2005 in the Aegean Coast of Asia Minor in the city called Izmir, with the idea of producing the most durable and comfortable daily wears namely underwear and home wear around the world. During the initial years of our corporation, we started long term projects for OEM with very well-known brands among Europe and the world.

With our long-term experience, know-how and high-tech production capabilities in manufacturing, logistics and marketing, we decided to present our own brand Blackspade to the local and global market in 2007, in order to share what we know the best, with all the members of the value chain.

What’s your point of difference? Why should buyers/retailers visit your stand at Fashion Exposed? What can they expect?

We wanted to show we are capable of posing a challenge to the more established brands. Our aim is to give the buyers/distributors a range with better quality of fabric and manufacture, good prices plus a larger margin and with our service. This ensures we have something worthwhile to stock.

Why should buyers visit your stand?

The visitors, preferably importer/distributors, will be able to see a wide range of underwear, thermal wear, home wear and swimwear products; and surely they will enjoy this top quality from Turkey. The product range includes basic and also flash underwear for women, men and kids, as well as high-quality thermal underwear, beachwear and indoor clothing.

Each style in the Blackspade collection range from  XS to 5XL with various colour options and prints.

Besides its continuous NOS “never out of stock” program, Blackspade offers its partners two new collections of fashionable underwear and home wear for AW and SS.

What are your plans for the future?

Blackspade is a leading and well-known brand across Turkey and the fastest growing in Europe, UK and US. It’s now starting operations in Canada as well.

Our aim is to have the same success story across Australia and New Zealand and meet the demands of consumers.
