Desima was founded in 1984 by Karl-Heinz Schmiedeberg and from the very beginning a synonym for exclusive wallcoverings “Handmade in Germany “. Desima became quickly known worldwide as a result of the high quality of its products, reliability and excellent reputation. It did not take long before Desima became present through competent trader partners on all continents.
Following the retirement of the founder and what became a less successful chapter of the business, Desima suffered a 5 year break in the business activities. At the beginning 2015 Karl-Heinz Schmiedeberg came out of retirement together with the new business partner Robin Gördes there followed a successful restructuring in product development, production and organisation Desima regained its former strength once again being fully prepared for today’s markets.
Desima is a traditional manufacturer based at our location in Salem near lake Constance in South Germany. There the complete product development and production of all our wallcoverings and collection books take place. Trained specialists and a professional engineering shop make up the central component of our manufacture. Despite the use of machinery, many steps in the production require the loving and careful work of our operators. It is only in this way we can justify the high expectations of our customers and the premise „Handmade in Germany “.
Desima-Products are developed from experienced designers in house. The designs of our collections are equally suitable for the tastes of luxurious and classical furnishings as well as fulfilling highly modern concepts.
We would like to furnish at least one building with our textile wallcoverings in every country so that all possible customers have access to our first class handmade wall papers.
We attach a great importance in long term relationships with our customers, employees and partners.
