Ian and Anne-Marie started DUC in 2016 with a vision of building a brand that can provide sustainable support to those that need it most. Our first partnership was with the Christina Noble Children's Foundation in Vietnam with the aim of breaking the poverty cycle by supplying children with educational assistance.
DUC later partnered with LauraLynn Ireland's Children's Hospice with the aim to support them with sustainable financial resources enabling them to continue to provide palliative care to Ireland's children.
DUC products are manufactured in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. When searching for manufacturers it was key to find a factory that operates with the same values as DUC and thankfully we have found a key partner in our production. Ethics are a massive part of the DUC brand and we pride ourselves in using factories that provide safe and clean working conditions for their staff. Every employee works social hours and earns a living wage. DUC regularly visits the factory ensuring compliance and quality control throughout production.
