THE DESOTO DIFFERENCE.
100% Made in Europe:
Due to the high demands on the quality of our jersey products, we are number 1 * in Jersey.
We also have this claim when it comes to sustainable and fair production in Europe.
Our jersey fabrics are produced in Germany and finished by our production partner in Austria. The shirts and blouses are assembled at our exclusive facility in North Macedonia. A family-run business with specially trained staff.
Regular training and quality controls ensure our consistent high-quality standards. True craftmanship from Europe. No matter whether in Germany, Austria or North Macedonia - by adhering to these standards, we want to create a working environment in which everyone can feel comfortable and will continue to enjoy working in the future. Because we know: the happier our employees are, the better our products are.

In shaping our trade relations, together with our facility partners we ensure compliance with social standards. We support the principles of the United Nations Global Compact in terms of human rights, labor law, environmental protection and ethical business practices. Our goal is to reconcile economic, ecological and social responsibility in a sustainable way.
As a responsible partner, we regularly identify and assess our operational environmental risks, taking the necessary measures to protect soil, air and water. The prerequisite is to minimize negative impacts and improve our environmental performance in the product lifecycle that we can influence. The use of raw materials and auxiliary materials that are harmful to health and the environment are regularly controlled by our production partners.
From 2020 we are member of the „Better Cotton Initiative“ (BCI). BCI farmers minimize the harmful impact of crop protection processes by encouraging water efficiency, ensuring soil health, improving biodiversity and responsible land use, maintaining and preserving fiber quality, and promoting decent work.
