MAWA - Company


We give the clothes hanger a new meaning.

A clothes hanger does many wonderful things: it creates order, it protects and cares for clothes, it preserves valuable, treasured items, it creates brand experiences and incentives to buy, and so, so much more. But all too often, it is viewed as a dull everyday object. We see a future in which hangers are valued differently.


We develop and manufacture clothes hangers to suit each individual’s very own lifestyle.

There is a huge variety of MAWA clothes hangers that are unique in their design and perfect in their functionality. We manufacture our products in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way, and see ourselves as part of a world that is working towards lower-emission and less resource-intensive production methods.

The brand makes the difference

MAWA – A unique business dating back to 1948. The brand is characterised by a spirit of pioneering and invention, which has been constantly developed over the years, but always with a sense of tradition. We manufacture with passion in Pfaffenhofen, Bavaria, a place with history rooted deeply as ours.

Being German means we combine long tradition with outstanding quality. MAWA hangers have enjoyed proven success over the decades, and we’ve developed groundbreakingly innovative products with our clients.

Michaela Schenk, the CEO of MAWA GmbH, takes you on a journey and tells you where and how a MAWA hanger is used.

Our goal is to achieve carbon neutral production by 2030, to give future generations a chance.
