Cloudveil fall 2002 preseason sales have increased 30 percent over last year, the company reported recently. Company VP and co-founder, Steve "Sulli" Sullivan attributed the overall increase to a rise in domestic orders, continued strength in the company's Japanese and Canadian business, a recent debut of the line in both the United Kingdom and Korea, and an introduction of a complete glove line. Gloves, in particular, drove sales increases since Cloudveil was able to open up retail doors in the ski and snowboard market.
