Harlot Clothing Company breaks into Canadian market, adds distributor Harlot Clothing Company LLC has recently added its first Canadian dealer, Garbanzo Bike & Bean in Whistler Village, and joined with BTI for domestic distribution.
Harlot Clothing Company LLC has recently added its first Canadian dealer, Garbanzo Bike & Bean in Whistler Village. The manufacturer of women’s cycling apparel is pleased to broaden its international presence as part of its continued overall growth.
“We have had a strong relationship with Minx, a web-based bicycle clothing site for women in the UK, for almost two years and knew there were other international opportunities for our unique style of apparel,” says Harlot president, Jennifer Steketee. “Garbanzo Bike & Bean has a great reputation and presence in a high profile area. We are thrilled to have them carrying our products.”
In addition to the international growth, Harlot added BTI as its exclusive domestic distributor this year, prompting a rise in total sales. Though BTI currently carries only select styles in the line, more products are being made available through the distributor as production costs are driven down. “Working with Harlot has been a great experience," says John Hasted, BTI's soft goods buyer. "Great designs from women who ride. We look forward to carrying more of their products in the near future."
Breaking into the cycling apparel scene in early 2004, Harlot Clothing Company has grown its line of women’s mountain biking and urban cycling clothes to include shorts, knickers, performance tops, t-shirts, hoodies, and accessories. The company is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and nearly all of its products are made in North America. Deriving its name from the early history of women cyclists when ladies were consider immodest and risqué for riding a bicycle, Harlot plans to continue its expansion into other markets.
