Kis Krarup has unparalleled knowledge of the Danish fashion industry and has accumulated more than 30 years’ worth of experience collaborating with a wide array of established brands and institutions. Kis’ expertise in the field comes from working with several brands under the IC Group and from her time as a lecturer and speaker at Copenhagen School of Technology and The Danish Fashion Institute.
Kis has extensive experience with product development and quality assurance and specializes in the development of supplier- and code of conduct manuals. She has helped develop several chemical manuals for both the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark and Dansk Mode og Textil and has made the creation and implementation of chemical management procedures her specialty
At Krarup Textil we are able to help you in the development and making of supplier manuals, and support you in the initial planning, creation and implementation of these to best fit your business and your wishes.
Specifically, we are able to help you develop manuals for supplier obligations and trading conditions, compliance manuals such as code of conduct and CSR policies and quality assurance manuals. We can help you develop manuals for chemical management and product safety and assist you in the product development stages to optimize supply chain processes.
We are always ready to evaluate current manuals and can help you develop sufficient policies that comply with current government rules and legislation within the fashion and textile industry.
We can help you develop manuals regarding supplier obligations and your standard terms and conditions of trade right from the get-go. Understanding and establishing an efficient supplier manual can help your suppliers understand your quality process and your social- and environmental considerations and requirements. Having a well-planned supplier manual will eventually help you minimize costs and risks associated with your suppliers and the sourcing of materials and products. Compiling all supplier relevant information in one set manual will make it easier for your suppliers to meet your expectations and serves as a contract between the two of you.
Compliance Manuals and Code of Conduct
Your code of conduct is a set of rules outlining your specific principles concerning working condition, ethical considerations, anti-corruption and the environmental footprint left behind by your company operations. We can support you in the making of your company’s corporate social responsibility manual, and with your vision and values as a foundation we ensure that your code of conduct reflects your brand identity and business strengths.
Furthermore, we can help you develop your own chemical manual, to ensure that you avoid unwanted chemicals in your textiles and garment production. Read more here.
Product Requirements Manuals & Quality Assurance Manuals
Have you yet to determine quality demands and standard terms for your products? Or should you need help with setting quality standards, quality control or even on EU labelling regulations? Let us help you develop both your product requirements and quality assurance manuals.
We can help you develop sufficient policies and are always ready to assist you in evaluating current manuals. Setting quality demands and following a checklist will help guarantee your production demands are followed and help bring down unwanted costs and returns from customers.
So, have you yet to familiarize yourself with the General Product Safety Directive and regulations on textile fiber names and labelling? Then don’t hesitate to contact us.

Krarup Textil will also be able to support you in the evaluation of current management practices and help you review and improve existing manuals to comply with new rules and regulations.
