It is the people
It is the people who make the difference in the production of our disana textiles.
The specialists and experts, the team players and lone wolves, the planners and creative minds.
With them we share the enthusiasm for pure natural fibers, the passion for a well-crafted piece of textile and the passion for timelessly beautiful fashion.
It is simply a joy to see how, step by step, a beautiful textile is created from a thin thread in our production.
With us, a garment does not travel halfway around the world just because the next step in the process is a few cents cheaper there.The distances in our production are short. Often, the next work step is only one table width away. In this way, we reduce energy requirements and pollution emissions during the production of our textiles to a minimum.
It is not only in our own production that we know exactly where things come from. We also rely on transparency and communication with our suppliers and service providers. Many of them are in our immediate neighbourhood and we have known each other for many years. Some since the very first days of disana.
Experts estimate that about 30% of manufactured textiles never reach the market. They are destroyed as so-called "overproduction". Huge resources are wasted in this way. By producing in-house, we have influence on every step of the process - even on the quantities. In this way, we control our production to the point, or rather, to the piece.
We bear responsibility for our employees. Because for them, too, disana is more than just a company in the business sense. It is a community with a family culture, where friendships are made and shared values connect beyond one's own background.
Woman at disana
More than 80 % of our employees are women. At the knitting and sewing machines, in customer service or in company management. For them - and for their male colleagues - we have arranged our working hours so flexibly that work and family can be combined in the best possible way.
Living wages are a hot topic in the fashion industry.We base the remuneration of our employees on the German collectively agreed wage. We pay taxes and social security contributions, contributions to the employers' liability insurance association, paid sick leave and much more. And that's a good thing.
As one of the larger employers in town, we also stand for community. For the bakery from which we always get our break-time pretzels on Fridays. For the local soccer club, which runs with our name on the jersey. For the kindergarten, which does crafts with our fabric remnants.
You can recognize the quality of our disana products by their beauty, functionality and durability. This quality comes from good design, from high-quality natural materials, from manufacturing characterized by craftsmanship, care and attention to detail. A quality that you can feel every day.
