DGF is a brand division of Darlinghurst Enterprises, LLC., a Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USA based company. Though DGF was founded as an American garment factory, the Darlinghurst Garment Factory is now focused exclusively on European production and Indian embroidery. Full and free, on site childcare is provided as a standard benefit to all employees. A state of the art manufacturing facility of over 45,000 square feet is opening in Paris for all internal and external luxury production. For $800,000 USD cash, DE (head company) is also acquiring and expanding a small family owned factory in Prague that offers very high quality and a full price match guarantee with any Chinese factory. DGF is offering very affordable price quotes for this Prague option which offers the “MADE IN EUROPE” clothing label. We offer low lot minimums for the Fall 2019 season. It would cost DE over $8 Million USD to build a beautiful factory in the USA and we would have to give away our equity to fund this so choosing Europe and staying bootstrapped—growing only through strategic venture debt—is the right path. While very disappointing to have changed the direction and course, DGF is very committed to sustainable fashion production in a zero waste, just in time manner and All American values even though the clothes will be made outside of the USA. We follow efficiency, productivity, and process systems developed by John Molloy as well as the just in time manufacturing ideal developed by the geniuses at Toyota Motors. While other companies out there offer 3 month turnarounds, we offer 14 day turnarounds.
