Welcome to

Desta PLC

About us

We have always been a pioneer in Ethiopia. In 1993, we were the first to manufacture jelly plastic shoes in Ethiopia, later introducing two-toned shoes. We were also the first company in East Africa to implement low noise and eco-friendly machines.



Desta’s vision is to become one of the world’s leading garment and textile manufacturers through a lasting commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility.


Desta’s mission is to deliver high-quality, consistent and on-schedule garment and textile products, and in doing so earn the trust and confidence of our domestic and international clients.


We are proud of the partnerships that we have formed with a variety of international and domestic clients. We work hard every day to ensure we deliver high-quality, consistent, and on-time products. We are not bound exclusively to any customer or brand.

Social Compliance.

Desta PLC is committed to the fair treatment of its employees and adherence to guiding principles of sustainability, setting it apart from the trajectory this industry has taken in many other countries. Desta is accredited by international standard and compliance organizations. It passed an audit by the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI); proof that Desta has created suitable working conditions and takes care of employees. In addition, Desta undergoes a social audit twice a year by SGS, a leading inspection, and certification company headquartered in Switzerland.


Desta provides some of the finest stitching and needlework available in Ethiopia. The embroidery unit uses sophisticated, computerized machines to produce high-quality patches and logos. We utilize SWF and Tajima machines with a variety of configurations. 

Accessory Cords

The accessory cords unit produces different types of accessory cords, including circular and flat designs. The cords can be produced based on our client’s color and design preferences. Several of our clients use the accessory cords for shoelaces, while others use them as draw cords for bags and sports clothing. 


Desta specializes in producing uniforms, t-shirts and other fashion items for buyers in Europe, the United States and Ethiopia. Desta is equipped with state of the art machines, from design to cutting, sewing, ironing, and finishing. The garment process starts with the patterning unit, which is led by an international expert. Once the patterns are complete, we use four cutting and layering tables (high-tech cutting knife), which deliver high-quality cuts and establish the shape of the garment. The garments then move to the sewing lines, where we use SIRUBA and JUKI sewing machines. After the fashion items are cleared by the quality control unit, the finishing unit completes the process by ironing, packing and performing other finishing works.

Desta PLC provides high-quality garment services for Ethiopian and international clients.
