THE BIRTH OF AN INTERNATIONAL E-⁠COMMERCE BUSINESS

Imagine  receiving the finest garments 48 hours after placing an order. It’s a reality shoppers at Grana, an online fine-fabric fashion brand. That’s the power of global trade backed by DHL Express’ e-commerce fulfillment services. 

Fine apparel from the world’s best fabrics delivered to customer doors across the globe in 48 hours

Everything changed the moment entrepreneur Luke Grana first touched the uniquely soft and smooth Peruvian Pima cotton. The trip to visit his brother Alex in Peru turned into the inspiration for a novel e-⁠commerce fashion business. Back home in Sydney, Luke’s new business idea began to take shape – the question was where to headquarter his venture.

Grana – a fashion brand goes global

   

For Luke, the decision was easy. A one-way ticket later, he was in Hong Kong, the world’s largest air cargo hub – and the smart choice for those sourcing fabrics directly from suppliers. Grana’s first meeting was with DHL due to our expertise in global e-⁠commerce fulfillment and international trade support. Now as their logistics partner, we help Grana efficiently ship products from their warehouse to their worldwide customer base.

From start-up to global e-⁠commerce business in four short years, today Grana is one of the most disruptive fashion brands in the world. They have customers in over 70 countries thanks to their mission to sell high-quality garments at fair prices. And by working directly with textile mills and manufacturers for the most optimal prices, Grana is transforming the fashion industry from the ground up, making luxury fashion accessible for everyone.
