Dear BENZAK community,
In light of uncertainty, we thought it'd be best to take the time today to explain what we are doing during these unprecedented times of the COVID-19 outbreak. We want to reassure all our customers that we are taking all necessary steps to follow the World Health Organization and local authorities' guidelines. Our priority is the safety, health and wellbeing of our customers, employees and partners.
We remain OPEN ONLINE; it's business as usual. We'll be releasing Drop 1 of our much-anticipated SS20 collection next week. We're in close contact with our factories and our warehouse. Both operations are working at a lesser capacity, selflessly continuing to create our garments and follow through with deliveries. We kindly ask for a little bit of extra patience for orders to be packed and shipped, there may be slight delays. All parties have and are taking any necessary precautions to keep a safe and responsible operation moving forward.
Upon further notice, we have temporarily closed our Amsterdam studio. As much as we will miss daily interaction, a whole lot of laughter, and awesome camaraderie among one another, we must do what is best for everyone. We have organised our teams to work from home. If you have any questions in regards to BENZAK in general, the new SS20 collection, your order, deliveries, or anything else, please reach out to us via email or our social media channels.
Unpredictable times are challenging, and there is an imminent threat to our economy. We are huge evangelists of buying for the future and supporting our fellow small businesses. We've only ever thought long term. From our product design sessions to the creation of full collections, we owe it to you guys to make garments that stand the test of time and transcend generations. We've never encouraged mass buying, and we never will. At volatile economic times such as this, we advise you to buy smarter and better. Whether that be from your local cafe who are offering a new temporary delivery service, whether it be from a local online vintage store, or even pre-booking a freelance photographer for your next venture. Now is the time for communities to come together and support small businesses and individuals moving forward.
We wouldn't be in a position to write this message if it wasn't for you guys. Thank you for being part of our BENZAK community.
Take care of yourself and look out for each other.
All the best,
BENZAK & Team
