Straight from the heart


Village Industry is based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, right in the middle of the Horn of Africa, the cradle of humanity. Ethiopia is a growing country that has invested heavily in the development of its textile sector and is nowadays one of the few successful African countries when it comes to textile and
garment production.


Our ambition is to provide our clients with flexible solutions for the production of textiles, garments and accessories. We use our own production facility but rely also on the capabilities and capacity of a network of other Ethiopian and African textile factories with complementary skills. For this reason, we have the possibility to meet the demand for small high-end productions and high-volume orders of standardised products.


Being based in one of the most well-preserved environments in the world, we strongly believe that every effort has to be made to fulfill the needs of mankind in accordance with nature.



Environmental sustainability is therefore an important aspect of our work. In order to preserve what we consider one of the last gardens remained on earth we strive to use natural additives and hand-work against energy thirsty machinery, without compromising on productivity.


We are also committed to promote the use of natural materials and technologies for packaging. Finally we have developed a natural dyeing process that uses pigments extracted from soil for long lasting and light-fast fabric coloration.
