Alashan Cashmere came to us to create a ecommerce experience for their customers. Alashan had been on the Magento open source platform for years, using the site as an online catalog to display their products for wholesale customers. They wanted to expand to a direct to consumer ecommerce platform and provide a unique and custom experience for their customers. PPWD recommended and Alashan chose to build their new Magento 2 site on the Magento Cloud.
Working closely with the client, our team came up with a unique theme to display a complex configurable product catalog in a unique sub-branded category approach. Alashan has four major brands within its catalog and each became its own category. Multi-configurable products used Magento swatches to display colors. As the site went live, the client began strategizing about integrating their new Magento 2 site with their Sage backend database as a follow on project.
