Production priorities

All Doug's™ embroidery is done with the highest quality rayon thread — a thread made from wood pulp or cotton.

All products are strictly made using certified, high quality materials. Various biodegradable and recycled materials are used, but Doug's™ often prioritises quality product, manufacturer responsibility and worker well-being.
