The brand and product launch through Zulily will initially feature Stardog’s best-selling product, hemp shoes, and is expected to kick off within the next month.

- Over 90% of North American orders are placed by repeat customers
- A majority of orders come from mobile devices
“In speaking with the category management team from Zulily, it was clear that they were looking to onboard special products with compelling values at attractive price points, differentiated by stories that inspire and excite consumers – this aptly describes Stardog and how we’ve executed mindfully building and scaling the brand, ” said Nicolás Vásquez, General Manager of Stardog Loungewear. “At Stardog, we are reframing our connection with nature by working with materials that can easily go back to where they came from. Growing the finest quality organic hemp fibers allows us to equip our tailors with the very best materials to design and handcraft our loungewear for consumers. Stardog is a shining example of the slow fashion movement that considers all aspects of the supply chain, aiming to respect people, the environment, and animals.”
“Conversations around corporate social responsibility and having a transparent supply chain are more prevalent today than ever before as consumers carefully consider how to spend their hard-earned dollars. When reviewing potential distribution partners to launch this campaign, it was evident to us that Zulily was able to effectively take consumers on a digital discovery journey that could accurately capture the story we’re trying to tell, make a personal connection, and provide us with the opportunity to expand this campaign into a larger initiative across our entire brand and product portfolio,” said Jason Warnock, Chief Revenue Officer of Flora Growth. “Stardog has an extremely passionate and engaged community in Colombia and we’re looking forward to working with the team at Zulily to help create the same demand and engagement we see at home. By taking a customer-centric approach and implementing a comprehensive marketing strategy coordinated across the entire customer journey, we believe that we’re effectively positioning Stardog to be as leading global hemp textile brand and look forward to announcing further distribution deals.”
