Georg Jensen chief executive, Mehul Tank, said in a statement: “The launch will allow us to embrace China’s fast-moving online retail scene and engage more closely with our Chinese clients.
“Currently, there is plenty of choice when purchasing luxury goods, so we are excited to present our design-driven brand in a way that is both convenient and innovative.”
This partnership with Alibaba and Tmall marks the brand’s first opening on a third-party marketplace in the Chinese market.
Tank, added: “This marks the beginning of an important new chapter for us. It gives us an innovative platform to reach new audiences and continue to tell stories through our design language, as we have done for over a century.”

We are proud to be supporting a brand with such distinctive sustainable and innovative spirit to expand their presence in an exciting market such as China.”
