We focus on product durability

We are committed to offering women tights with the finesse, aesthetics and comfort they are looking for, while maximizing their strength and durability.

Our tights follow a strict and very thorough process of research and development, followed by quality and resistance tests. Even before being manufactured, each potential launch is subjected to about 50 tests with a representative panel of consumers. SIf satisfaction rate is under 80%, DIM revisits the product development process. Hosiery products are verified throughout the manufacturing process: more than 700,000 inspections are carried out each year at our sites in Autun, France.

We work hard on sustainability

We are also working on several strategic projects on sustainability, to manufacture tights made from recycled yarns and to allow recycling tights. We will also implement soon an ECO-SMART label on all our products.

Our coeur is in France

In the beautiful French Bourgogne region, at Autun, the DIM brand’s birthplace, 800 passionate women and men elaborate the DIM products. Our tights have been knitted there for 60 years! We have developed state-of-the-art expertise and continue to leverage our unique French know-how and advanced technology to offer the very best to our clients. And each Autumn, we open our doors to our neighbors to share our passion about DIM.
