How BLESS Internacional Was Able To Expand Into New Markets With Less Financial Resources

BLESS Internacional

The company started their work in 1995, under the name Josborda, Lda. In this phase, their activity root was directed only to the manufacture of embroidery. In 1997 the company started to sell and export their first made pieces, since the accumulated experience, far surpassed, only the production of embroidery. As a result of the process of growth and adaptation to the times of today and tomorrow, BLESS Internacional was born.

A company that replaces its previous designation and that aims to represent the DNA of its organization with more rigor and communicative transparency. With BLESS International, a commitment to strengthening and improving current supply standards is also born, in the certainty that the companies and people who brought them here will also be the solid basis for a future.

For BLESS Internacional one thing is certain: time is precious! The textile market runs very fast and being present at physical trade shows would inhibit them from preparing and shipping samples to potential customers, therefore risking losing clients to competitors. To surpass this situation, BLESS Internacional was looking for an alternative business solution: a digital platform that would prevent them from feeling pressured to use all of their time and resources at trade shows.
