Meet the spon­sors

Saturday Star - - METRO -

BLUKIDS is Upim’s cloth­ing brand ded­i­cated to kids. It is a brand of OVS SPA, a group with over 1250 stores in Italy and other coun­tries.

It is a point of ref­er­ence for great value, ac­ces­si­ble shop­ping to suit the ev­ery­day needs of mums and kids.

In South Africa, the com­pany is led and run by Pauline C de Souza who is a di­rec­tor and pub­lic of­fi­cer.

Blukids of­fers col­lec­tions for kids aged 0-15, which stand out for their use of nat­u­ral fi­bres and ex­cel­lent value for money.

The range in­cludes un­der­wear, ac­ces­sories and footwear. All prod­ucts are made to be com­fort­able and fun for kids to wear. The col­lec­tions in­clude a lot of items cus­tomised with char­ac­ters from the most im­por­tant li­cen­sors like Dis­ney, Warner Bros, Marvel, San­rio and many more.

The com­pany was in­cor­po­rated in South Africa in July 2016, and has been run­ning suc­cess­fully ever since. It cur­rently has three stores sit­u­ated in Krugers­dorp (Cradle­stone mall), Cresta and Pre­to­ria (Men­lyn mall). With the grow­ing num­ber of cus­tomers and de­mand, Blukids aims to ex­pand in the cur­rent year 2018.

The com­pany cur­rently has a staff of 12 well-trained em­ploy­ees, in­clud­ing the di­rec­tor and re­tail con­sul­tant.

The OEKO-TEX® cer­ti­fi­ca­tion that the com­pany has guar­an­tees qual­ity and safety, thanks to the strin­gent tests on fab­rics and yarns.

Blukids en­sures that OEKO-TEX brand prod­ucts are free from sub­stances that may be harm­ful to hu­man health.

The above-men­tioned vi­sion and mis­sion state­ment will be the pride and joy of the com­pany which we in­tend not only to ex­e­cute but to hold dear.

With a wide ex­pan­sion of the com­pany in South Africa, the pro­jec­tions for the cur­rent year are ex­pected to in­crease by 40%.

Due to the com­pany’s in­ter­na­tional mar­ket and stan­dard, Blukids aims not only to com­pete with lo­cal re­tail­ers but to be the best lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.
