The Aha moment

While lounging back on a wooden chair on a beach in Vietnam, newly married couple Chole Kerr and Geoff Spink were on honeymoon and decided that year they would begin the dream of starting a textile print company. Mojito in one hand and pen in the other they jotted down all the ideas of what Next State could be.

Chole came from a fashion background and was working in textile print and manufacturing. She identified the lack of accessible, affordable printing for short run customization in Australia. With extensive experience in local manufacturing Chole understood the industry demands and the way customers and people need to be treated and supported by their suppliers.

Geoff, having worked in corporate global business and recently transitioning into web and software development, identified the key role technology can play in achieving brilliant results on small scales. Geoff’s digital literacy and business skills brings process and function to a manufacturing environment.

As partners in life and business Chole and Geoff’s unique skillsets set forth to launch Next State in 2014. Fast forward to the present day and two factory moves, two babies, hundreds of thousands of meters printed and many beautiful people met, the journey is just getting started.

Next State is what it is and continues to evolve further because of the brilliantly talented and driven in-house team that bring their A-Game every day. The contribution, ideas, implementations, innovations, and passion of the Next Sate team through the years makes them the true creators of this company.

Our Vision

Our vision is to change the way we consume and connect with textiles and products.

We believe in customisation for individual needs and creating short runs to service specific requirements. We believe in local manufacturing and ethical supply chains, and having a connection to the people who produce textiles and the environment in which they do it. We believe in mass customisation to service dream outcomes instead of mass production for basic satisfaction.

We believe in using technology to empower design and make it attainable to anyone with a creative vision. Design in textiles is to be celebrated and shared by all as one of the oldest crafts is the world, we feel privileged to be a part of the technological movement in the industry.

We are here for you and to listen and guide you on your textile journey and to share our knowledge and expertise because we are the digital textile print and product manufacturing experts.
