Hangers for clever people

The brand makes the difference

MAWA - Made in Gemany

In 1948 Martin Wagner had the vision to manufacture the best clothes hangers in the world – fully automated: MAWA metal clothes hangers. Started with trousers suspender MAWA has created numerous innovations for the market. These have brought the hanging of clothes to perfection as well as considered the different fashion trends of the last decades. The MAWA product range comprises over 500 products. All path breaking developments for metal clothes hangers were invented at MAWA and were registered as patents – like completely turnable hooks, anti-slip coating and clip hangers. MAWA is the original – often copied, never the same quality.


The production of the clothes hangers is Made in Germany: In Pfaffenhofen designers, engineers, suppliers and sales staff work in a close collaboration and the own machinery allows a huge flexibility and quickness in the manufacturing.


MAWA increases all efforts towards consumer protection. All materials used for production can be recycled and water consumption was reduced by 80%. MAWA hangers are produced environmentfriendly and are certified according to strictest ecologic standards. MAWA clothes hangers are free from toxins and harmful substances like heavy metals and softeners which get onto the clothes and your skin from the coat hanger. For these efforts as well as the social responsibility MAWA was nominated several times and honoured with the "Grand Prix of German Small and Medium-sized Enterprises" by the Oscar-Patzelt-Foundation.

Our focus is the customer. MAWA does not stand only for quality in the production, innovations and product range variety – the brand MAWA offers through its expertise a real decision guidance for purchasing. This fact appreciates not only the Germans. MAWA delivers „Made in Germany“ to 64 countries in Europe, Asia and the US – presented with the "Bavarian Export Award".
