Garments Made in Ethiopia – socially compliant
Addis Abeba based Desta PLC specializes in producing t-shirts, uniforms and other fashion items international and local buyers. Social compliance is a big issue for the BSCI certified company.

“Desta PLC is equipped with state of the art machines, from design to cutting, sewing, ironing, and finishing”, says Eyob Bekele, Managing Director of the company. The garment process starts with the patterning unit, which is led by an international expert. “Once the patterns are complete, we use four cutting and layering tables (high-tech cutting knife), which deliver high-quality cuts and establish the shape of the garment. The garments then move to the sewing lines, where we use SIRUBA and JUKI sewing machines. After the fashion items are cleared by the quality control unit, the finishing unit completes the process by ironing, packing and performing other finishing works.”



Desta provides some of the finest stitching and needlework available in Ethiopia. The embroidery unit uses sophisticated, computerized machines to produce high-quality patches and logos. “We utilize SWF and Tajima machines with a variety of configurations.”

Accessory Cords

The accessory cords unit produces different types of accessory cords, including circular and flat designs. The cords can be produced based on our client’s colour and design preferences. Several of our clients use the accessory cords for shoelaces, while others use them as draw cords for bags and sports clothing.

Desta PLC is committed to the fair treatment of its employees and adherence to guiding principles of sustainability, setting it apart from the trajectory this industry has taken in many other countries. Desta is accredited by international standard and compliance organizations. It passed an audit by the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI); proof that Desta has created suitable working conditions and takes care of employees.
