ASFW 2022: DESTA PLC’s Perspective

Desta PLC is a family-owned, high-quality, ethical garments manufacturer exhibited at the African Sourcing and Fashion Week (ASFW) 2022 for the 8th time at the beginning of this month in Skylight Hotel, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

ASFW is the premier event for the textile, fashion, and technology industries in Africa. This year’s edition featured over 4,000 international trade visitors and investors from over 40 countries, making it the largest ASFW yet. With more than 200 exhibited companies from 29 countries, the show was opened by the Ethiopian Ministry of Industry H.E. Melaku Alebel and Ministry of Tourism H.E Ambassador Nassise Cahli. Country pavilions, the biggest African textile & apparel conference with over 20 topics, personal B2B meetings, a factory tour, and the latest products and solutions were at this year’s edition – making it a must-attend event for anyone in the industry.

ASFW is a great opportunity for us to showcase our high-quality products and meet industry players from all over the world. Desta currently grows in capacity. Desta was in the manufacturing business since 1993, our 30 years of experience and the growth of our capacity can be able to mass production in a short period. 

We’re so grateful to have had the opportunity to showcase our wonderful products at the event. Terara coffee and Best Water were great refreshers for our visitors. We’re confident that this year’s show was successful as previous years. If you didn’t get a chance to visit us at the tradeshow, we would be happy to see you at our factory. Desta PLC is your first choice for booking your production line.

Desta PLC is an independent, family-run and family-owned business based in Ethiopia. We provide a full range of knitting, cutting, sewing and finishing services, including accessories and embroidery. We specialize in t-shirts, uniforms and fashion items. Please contact us at to discuss our services!
