A digital jewellery company based in Wetherby is hoping for a major sales boost after signing a distribution agreement with a company in the United States.
Kiroco makes award-winning “wearable technology”, including charms that can store personal information like PIN codes and photos, and pendants that can receive private messages from the giver.
Information is secured by bank-level encryption, and the jewellery is waterproof, shockproof and resistant to extremes of temperature.
The distribution deal with New York-based Allyson Sackman Nick is Kiroco’s first move into international markets.
Managing director Nigel Townsend said: “We have seen that the Americans have been early adopters of wearable technology, so it was essential that we took Kiroco digital jewellery to this market. We believe this is the right time for our union with Allyson Sackman Nick.”
A spokesperson for Allyson Sackman Nick said the wearable technology market was growing at a staggering pace in the US: “Being a British product, utilising cutting-edge technology and being truly wearable due to the clean and fresh designs, Kiroco Touch jewellery will stand out in this ever-expanding market.”
