How do we work?

Every branded gift from D&S is designed from scratch. There are no off-the-shelf prototypes or copycat goods. We take each client’s brief on an individual basis, designing items that match their specific requirements. Size, shape, colour, material, type; every element of our design process is built around you and your brand.

Our factories

D&S employs a wide network of factories in Asia to allow us to offer the widest selection of styles and materials. We personally handpick the factories based on their strong ethical codes and ability to uphold the highest workplace standards. These measures are reviewed regularly to ensure full confidence across production standards and workplace conditions.

Our membership of Sedex allows D&S full transparency of operations within our supply chain. We’re able to confidently source suppliers and ​​have oversight of every element, from the harvesting of raw materials to the transportation of the final product.

Quality Control

As a family-run business for over 50-years, a personal attention to detail is at the heart of D&S. We take great pride in ensuring a consistently high level of quality throughout our production lines and have an inhouse team who perform routine checks to ensure factory output matches order specifications.

Our multiple quality assurance accreditations are testament to this attention to detail, as are the long-standing relationships with our clients that average ten years. We abide by the AQL quality standards to provide confidence throughout the production process.
