Enthusiasm for their craftsmanship, finesse through years of dealing with the materials, high standards of quality and aesthetics, attention to detail as well as a deep appreciation for the environment, nature and their fellow human beings: these are qualities that we seek and find in our producers.
Economic and ecological sustainability, social participation, perspectives: it is this understanding that motivates us at MAOMI in our daily work and connects us with our international producers. Their biographies are as varied as they are unique, turning our designs into true MAOMI products.
Our production partners in Vietnam can look back upon a century-old porcelain tradition in their country. With our porcelain series KAYA we would like to make a small contribution to the continuation of this tradition and support the manufactory in its efforts for fair wages, social standards and gender equality on the local labour market. We at MAOMI are grateful we got to know each other and for this special cooperation.
Bed Linen ALMA
Our production facility in India is part of a development cooperative that works for small farmers and their local living conditions. Our cotton producer works closely with the cooperative. Thanks to qualified local contacts, we have the opportunity to gain reliable insight into the manufacturing processes and sustainability standards in the company. This transparency and the resulting relationship of trust, enables us to implement complex procedures and details for our ALMA bed linen together with the trained seamstresses. At the same time, our fair pricing policy exercises positive influence on sustainability and wages.
When choosing our carpenter, the offered quality and creative work, but above all the social interaction within the company and the philosophy of the management were decisive for us.

In addition to free medical visits, subsidised meals and free work clothes, employees are provided with a library and low-interest loans.
Cutting Board BENNY
When selecting our olive wood producer, the outstanding quality in production and the sustainable attitude of the management were decisive. For BENNY, we only use olive wood from old trees that do not carry fruit any more, With our carpenters in Turkey we found a warm openness and a great knowledge of materials. Their passion for wood and the ability to liven up the material, add to the quality of our product.
