After working for a large Jeans Manufacturer in Ontario, a Canadian Entrepreneur decided it was time to give leather patches a go. In the early days of business, the Medike specialized in Workwear trims, offering only 3-4 different types of leather.
As sales grew Medike shifted more of its resources to serve fashion brands which were looking to accessorize their garments. The company’s leadership saw sales growth and increased volume as an opportunity to expand.
Production facility and distribution centre opens in Kowloon, Hong Kong to better serve garment contractors in Asia.
