BBGreek.com is the Greek Licensing website of BadBananas, a brand created by a bunch of wacky misfits with a lot of product ideas.
We got our start, long ago, selling decorated knick knacks that make fun and delightful gifts. It was a long-standing desire to develop items for Greek organizations. In fact, we have some very old prototypes of scarves and bathrobes made many years ago.
The Greek licensing idea sat on the back burner until very early 2020, when we had the great idea "hey, let's go for it". Perfect timing, right? So we started to pursue licenses and set up a website (this one) to focus solely on Greek licensed items.
Then the pandemic hit.
And we had to figure out what this business looks like in a new normal. The team here has tons of manufacturing and supply chain experience. Across many product types.
So through a lot of bumps and bruises, we set up an approach that we hope you'll like, we call it Stock, Drops and MTO (Made-To-Order).
Some items have consistent demand and we keep them in stock. Some items we do as drops, where we make a production run and sell it, maybe we reorder, maybe we won't, it really depends on demand.
Everything else is made to order. And we're really proud of what we've set up there.
We've set up micro-production with some of the best producers in our categories. Quality craftsmanship combined with our sourcing resources for fabrics and trims (it sounds weird, but in apparel manufacturing things like zippers, buttons and such are called trims), and working with best-in-class technical designers (the people who make patterns and tech packs). We also have two graphic designers on staff and work with a handful of freelancers.
So our production capabilities are expansive. But production is made to order and takes time.
Everything you see us offer is officially licensed. We have obtained licenses for every group we represent. We know that matters, because a lot of companies sell products without going through the approval process and most importantly, paying your organization the proper licensing fees.
We are deeply honored to be able to represent the organizations that you see here, and hope that you appreciate our effort to provide you with unique and creative items, that you can be proud to wear, showcase or give as gifts.
We produce our products all over the globe, by working with small producers, some are one-person operations, some are small workshops with a dozen employees, many are family owned and operated businesses. They all share the common value of a commitment to the craft of the product, and the desire to do the best job possible, so that you get something that you will love to own (or give).
Some of our items are produced and stocked, some are made to order, all are made with love. ❤️
If you're looking us up, on your org's licensing database, we're registered as Four Twigs, LLC.
