The textile value chain is long and full of challenges. Dibella already assumes responsibility here in the standard and is committed to human rights, environmental protection and health. Sustainability that benefits everyone involved. In the case of Longlife Textiles, the high criteria of MADE IN GREEN/Green Button apply to almost all articles (exact details of the respective certificates can be found on the respective products). For sustainable raw materials, we implement Cotton made in Africa-verified cotton in our supply chain, supporting socially and environmentally sustainable cotton production in Africa.
Our goal is to constantly increase this share.
Dibella is proud to partner with the Cotton made in Africa (CmiA) initiative, an internationally recognized standard for sustainable cotton grown by smallholder African farmers. CmiA-verified cotton has a significantly lower environmental impact than conventional cotton and supports village communities in Africa.
The cooperative, comparable to a cooperative, supports the micro-farmers, for example by guaranteeing the purchase of the cotton harvest. The "umbrella" of the cooperative offers security and other advantages:
The so-called "ginning" extracts the seed from the harvested plants. This seed can be used again by the farmer and does not have to be purchased anew. A resource-saving process that brings further benefits:
The production facilities for further processing of the organic cotton are all Fairtrade certified and stand out for their compliance with the strict specifications:
This production step is also based on the responsible treatment of employees and the environment:
This is where the fabrics are given their desired appearance. During the bleaching and dyeing processes, our partners reliably and verifiably comply with the relevant guidelines:
The seamstresses and sewers who process the fabrics work under humane conditions. All employees receive recognition and appreciation for their performance:
Dibella presents the entire textile value chain transparently - starting with product development - and thus guarantees significant advantages, such as:
The transparent supply chain offers advantages to industrial laundries in terms of textile properties, as well as many opportunities for communication:
Beyond the pure laundry service, the hotelier receives a sustainable added value. By using the certified textile concept, he can clearly distinguish himself from his competitors and offer his guests a special product and the associated good feeling:
Discreetly, but clearly, the use of sustainably and fairly produced textiles is pointed out. The guest can thus directly experience the added value and will associate the hotel stay with a particularly good feeling, gladly come back and recommend the hotel.
