“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl
Our story begins twenty-five years ago when our founders, a passionate Swiss couple, were asked by their close friends to help them find unique, premium, and functional paper packaging for a high-end chocolate brand. Whilst exploring options, they quickly realised that there was a lack of quality products as well as an absence of services in this sector. Their disappointment is what then inspired them to think about how they could take on the task of creation themselves. Our adventure, which thus began as a small project, has now led us to become one of the most preferred premium custom packaging producers in Europe.
The creation of our initial luxury chocolate packaging inspired us to explore further and focus on increasing our portfolio to the packaging of various chocolate, baked goods and confectionary goods. Due to the diligent design of our hand-crafted boxes, we soon became front runners in the sector, being recognised for our attention to detail and preciseness.
The fundamental mission of our founders was to focus on our customers first; and this is still the case today. The question that drives us is “What are your needs?” Through asking this question, we are able to provide you with services that encompass the whole process of package creation and production from start to finish. Other than thinking about the practical functionalities of packaging in terms of how best to store your products, we have also always focused on how best to represent the value behind your company and brand to the best of our ability.
Now, with the second generation joining the company, we have truly become an inter-generational family business. This fresh perspective is what is allowing us to constantly evolve and ask ourselves “How might we get better at what we do?” Through this point of view, we are now focusing not only on environmentally-conscious packaging options through research and development initiatives but also on a long-term sustainable production model that can reduce our carbon footprint through the use of recyclable raw materials. The primary vision of our company at present is to offer green packaging options while uncompromising the quality of our craftsmanship.
Heraclitus once said, “The only constant in life is change”, and at Dilara Design, we embrace this change with open arms. Whilst respecting our history, seeing the present, we also look to the future hopeful, imagining how best to adapt and evolve in an ever-changing world.
In a world of mass production and consumption, the value of unique, hand-crafted personalized as well as mechanically produced, and environmentally-friendly packages can provide the magic we are all looking for. A special touch is all it takes, and that is what we aim to provide. As we look to the future, we hope to design and manufacture boxes for all types of products and industries. We provide quality over quantity; we do not want our customers to stress over minimum order quantities. We want you to be able to focus on your vision, as we focus on ours.
Our difference is providing cost-effective quality products, whilst focusing on all the services that you need. We provide in-house solutions to all your problems and help answer all questions that you have relating to packaging. We are there with you every step of the way as we co-create and co-design the best packaging options for you and your company.
Let’s help you create a touch of magic in someone’s life.
