HOOOKED - Textile
The idea for Hoooked Zpagetti arose in 2008 when the Dutch entrepreneur Geesje Mosies visited the garment industry in Portugal with her Portuguese family in law and saw how much residual material was thrown away. She then developed an idea to use these materials and carve them into thick strands, so that it can be used to knit fashionable items. The main production work is carried out in Portugal and the strands are then imported to the Netherlands to be further processed and sold.
Geesje started her business in a garage, but her company Hoooked Zpagetti proved such a success that she soon moved to larger premises in The Hague together with some employees. In the Netherlands the company has a team of 20 employees, but in Portugal Geesje employs over 80 employees near Fatima.
