MAWA – Sustainability


MAWA is a company with a 75-year history, and this history means responsibility: for our environment, our nature, and, of course, all people.

As a global company, we always think about sustainability holistically, from the production of our clothes hangers and the materials we use to the longevity of our products.

At MAWA, sustainability means:
Resource-efficient production, eco-friendly materials, and durable products.

MAWA aims to achieve a CO2-neutral production by 2030, ensuring a sustainable future for coming generations.

The 2030 Agenda, established by the United Nations member states, provides a foundation for shaping global economic progress in harmony with social justice and within the Earth's ecological limits.

This is how we demonstrate our commitment to greater sustainability and environmental protection.

Sustainable Clothes Hangers

Whether wood, metal, or eco material, we prioritise sustainability in every MAWA hanger.

Like our customers, we hold our clothes hangers to high standards of sustainability. Our three materials – metal, wood, and our new ECO material – each meet these standards in different ways. Despite their different properties, all three hanger ranges have one thing in common: they are high-quality and durable. This already fulfills an important criterion of sustainability and stands against the throwaway society.

By the way, you won't find traditional plastic hangers at MAWA, as this material does not align with our sustainability approach.

Metal Clothes Hangers

We manufacture our metal hangers from German steel and coat them with a non-slip finish free of toxic plasticisers. We recycle our production waste.

Wooden Hangers

We use only FSC® certified wood for our clothes hangers and ensure exceptionally high-quality craftsmanship. After all, a long lifespan is what truly makes a product sustainable.

ECO Material Hangers

We are actively developing new materials made from renewable resources that are carbon-negative. Our first bio clothes hanger is the MAWA C-Cycle.

Our clothes hangers made from metal, wood, and biogenic material differ in both their raw materials and production processes. Nevertheless, we want to give you the confidence that by choosing any of our hangers, you are selecting an exceptionally sustainable product. Our seals and certificates attest to this commitment.

Our metal hangers are exceptionally durable and are often used for decades in wardrobes, fashion stores, and hotels. High-quality materials and timeless design ensure stability and a good price-performance ratio. This is represented by our Longlife logo.

Our new BIO hangers are made of up to 98% natural fibers, highlighting their exceptional eco-efficiency. We substantiate this important sustainability criterion with a TÜV seal, so you can confidently choose a hanger that perfectly combines sustainability and quality.

MAWA wooden hangers are made exclusively from sustainable, controlled forestry cultivation and are FSC® certified. This management of the forests will also provide a livelihood for future generations.


Clothes hangers made from plant fibres and biopolymers

Our BIO clothes hanger, C-Cycle, is made from a material comprising natural fibres and plant processing residues.

It is individually shaped from granules using the injection moulding process and is available in various colours. MAWA C-Cycle stands out for its natural look and feel, as well as its high quality and stability. With its biogenic basis, it offers significant identification potential.

MAWA C-Cycle utilises organic residues, preserving the plant-based CO2 storage for climate protection. Through recycling after use, it can extend its protective storage effect within the cycle.

MAWA C-Cycle carries the DIN Tested mark for products made from over 85% biogenic materials (registration number 8C365). By choosing MAWA C-Cycle, you are opting for the future of sustainable clothes hangers.
