DW-Shop joins Fair Wear Foundation

FWF is pleased to welcome German mail-order brand DW-Shop as our newest member. DW-Shop was founded in 1976 from an initiative by German NGO Welthungerhilfe as a sales platform for third world products.

The company is based in Königswinter near Bonn, Germany and employs 85 people. Originally dominated by hard goods, the product range has shifted towards textiles and clothing. Although three retail shops are maintained DW-Shop is primarily a mail order and online retailer, with its textile products being manufactured by more than 50 suppliers in six countries.  DW-Shop joined FWF on 1 February 2012.

More information is availabe on DW-Shop’s website, and a press release can be downloaded here (in English).
