Quality control is an integral part of the business. Each square meter of fabric used in our factory is checked before, during and after manufacture. Thanks to the tough standards that Dickson set for themselves we can offer a guarantee on all of their products for up to 10 years.


The high-performance fibres, treatments and weaving processes, most of which are conducted internally, distinguish the Dickson quality from that of all other fabrics on the market today. This technological superiority enables Dickson to guarantee the colourfastness and rot proofing of some of its fabrics for up to ten years.

This added-value has boosted the company’s international sales, with exports increasing from 50% to 75% of the company’s revenues over the past ten years.
