We are very proud
to present this range of images from our wonderful

FULL TRANSPARENCY | FULL
When we started this company in 2007 we had three catchwords that
permeated the development; organic,
unisex and unique.
We are always completely transparent concerning our production and
working conditions. We are very proud to show you the wonderful
production units in India and it is a real pleasure to visit the staff!
The entire production of DUNS Sweden is certified by GOTS and controlled
by ControlUnion. All employees have a salary that exceeds the Living
Wage for India with 22%. (Read
more on Living Wage) Working days are between 9 and 5.
Overtime is paid and volontary. If the heat is to strong the working
hours are adjusted. The unit has 20 permanent employees and 25 floating
(meaning they have special knowledge and work in different units
depending on if their expertice is needed).
If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us! We would
love to tell you everything! 1.
Below you can see the
rolls of organic cotton used to produce the fabric of
DUNS Sweden garments.
The machine is a very interesting piece of equipment and
it is really amazing to see the fabric filling up the
big roll at the very bottom of the machine. The fabric
is in a tube shaped form that needs to be cut open in
a later stage of the production.

If you look closely you can see all the threads going
into the machine. The red light indicates that there are
something that is currently wrong and needs to be
checked! This machine is not moving right now hence all
In this image you can see that there are some red lights
still. When all threads ar OK you can start the machine.
If something happens with any of all the threads during
the actual knitting process the machine stops and the
problem must be solved.
The finished product is rolled up and placed in these
piles for further transport.
We have followed the fabric to the dyeing unit. As you
can see the dyeing process is made in closed containers
where the residue will be filtered before leaving the

During the dyeing process you can watch the fabric
through small glass windows at the top.

consuming. The machine makes 12 applications at the same
time. It takes about 45 minutes to complete 12 owl

cut all the small parts before you can start.
