Folk to distribute Cherokee medical uniforms in Japan

December 22, 2016 - Japan

Designer, manufacturer and distributor of fashion inspired medical apparel Strategic Partners has inked a partnership with Folk Co Ltd, a 114 year old Japanese supplier of uniforms. Under the terms of the partnership, Folk will design, manufacture and distribute Cherokee medical uniforms developed exclusively for the Japanese healthcare market.

The arrangement with Folk comes into effect from January 1, 2017, and builds on the 10-year history that Cherokee medical uniforms have enjoyed in Japan.

According to Strategic Partners, these medical uniforms are in response to a worldwide trend away from white uniforms toward colourful and fashionable medical apparel.

"We are excited and proud to enter into this exclusive agreement with Folk," Jay Yard, VP, international sales at Strategic Partners said. "Folk’s attention to detail and quality apparel, makes this a truly ideal partnership.” (AR)
