how we work

01

Product design

Everything starts with the right input. DTO keeps a close watch on the latest fashion trends and techniques in order to help turn your good idea into a great idea. We analyze the intended use of each item and develop garments based on functionality, quality, comfort & price point. Once that idea takes on a more concrete form, the construction details and all specifications of the garment are listed in a technical file.

02

Sourcing

Then, we start looking for the right factory to turn your ideas into actual garments. We compare prices, samples, lead times etc. and will not stop until we have found exactly what you are looking for. We always keep in mind the price/quality ratio and promote sustainable fabrics as much as possible.

Product
development

Now that we have selected the right materials, we can transform the design into a garment. Together with our partners, we produce all necessary samples.

Production

The machines start running. Our account managers and quality controllers have daily contact with the production to monitor the whole process.

06

Quality assurance & control

It is our mission to deliver high-standard quality. We ensure the implementation of approvals in the pre-production phase.

No garment escapes our very strict quality control where we ensure the conformity of the production according to the approved technical file or last updated sample. The quality of the garments is permanently monitored, not only by teams in the factory but as well as our own teams.

07

Transport & import

Now that the garments are ready, we need to get them to your warehouse. We can deliver them at the port of departure or ensure the whole import process with delivery at your door.
