Why Designer Textiles?
We started manufacturing textiles in New Zealand over 50 years ago. To survive and grow we had to be flexible in our thinking, to be innovative and to challenge ways of doing things. This attitude led us to develop industry-leading skills in circular knitting, dyeing and finishing. These skills enabled us to realise the true potential of nature’s miracle fibre and introduce performance Merino to the world.
Today, Designer Textiles International is a global company. Our Head Office and Innovation Centre are in New Zealand and our manufacturing plant is in Vietnam. Our Vietnam plant is state of the art, including Quality Control and Colour Matching Laboratories, as well as the latest in Digital Printing facilities. Add to that the experience, knowledge and passion of our people for Merino fabric and you won’t find another company in the world which can do more with Merino.
Our belief in Merino fabric is wholeheartedly sincere. Our investment is real and substantial. When you work with a material that’s natural, sustainable, performs brilliantly and is found in one of the most beautiful regions in the world, it’s very easy to become a crusader for Merino. And that’s what we all are. We’re on a mission to unleash Merino’s brilliance and unlock its unlimited potential and provide the ultimate fabric for comfort, warmth and wearability for year after year.
