According to Ancient Greek Mythology, when Odysseus was asked by the Cyclops “Who are you?” he answered…. “NOBODY.”
Likewise, the web-page platforms require us to fill out a “Who are you?” or “About us” field. For that reason, society feels that we need to conform, following the mainstream, forming a catchy “image”. Such an image should include all those contemporary, seasonal, sparkling, characteristics that the modern consumeristic society demands non-stop. For instance, glamor, glory, wealth, prosperity, comfort, megalomania, fashion, sociability, kindness, knowledge, nobility, perfection etc. However, we all just end up copying one another, we follow the same approach of the more “successful” and “shinny” commercial samples of images, that have actually managed to become the “bright stars” in our world so far.
However, in DGR we believe that the only thing that defines us is our actions. These actions are judged in present and future time, under a different spectrum, filter and point of view.
In DGR, we believe that our actions cannot easily be conveyed through a computer screen, an image or even verbally. They are deeper than thousands of words, judgements or, imprints of the moment. They are the actions that consist and, define the authentic “identity” of a person, a team, an enterprise or, an organization. These actions will finally form the social bonds, the collective awareness and, gradually the development of our society and our world. Our actions will win or, lose the timeless battle of evolution, having a large or small impact in it.
In DGR, we believe that, the actions and energy of the individual interaction, have no value to be judged by the people who acted. Similarly, there is no value in being judged by a third party. The value can only be defined by the timeless interaction, contribution and impact of our actions on our environment. This value will always be visible.
Still, we would like to provide you some what of an “About Us” below.
The DGR team was created in 2017 in a country, Greece, that is in the center of a political, economic and social crisis of our world. DGR decides to act in a time, when the local social, political and economic environment is diffusing as an epidemic. This epidemic spreads a web full of darkness, despair, depression, withering, distraction, fear, doubt, chaos, bankruptcy, and destruction. Therefore, who would dare to create anything in such a negative and hostile environment of constant collapse?
DGR has the courage. DGR has the vision. Because there is hope for tomorrow and for a New Sustainable World.
DGR, looks forward to develop in a different economic entity/organism that will cater for one of the basic human needs, clothing. Combining a mesh of cooperation and other connected but meanwhile, autonomous entrepreneurial initiatives, which will cover the other two basic human needs; food and housing. This will set the foundation through new filters of entrepreneurship, cooperation, creation, quality and value, under one cause; pure sustainability.
People with different starting points in life, different life and work experiences, different ages, personalities and careers, different expertise and skills, different social levels and academic knowledge, dare and unite in something common. There is something that unites them and urges them as a natural phenomenon to cooperate through the need of the creation of a new sustainable function, as people, a team, an organism, an economy, a society, a world, nature, as ONE.
DGR, is a seed of coordination of the consciousness of a group of people, targeted and wounded from the increasingly developing and intensively negative (according to our opinion) forces of this era. A group of woke people who realized for decades now, consciously and subconsciously from their experiences that, indeed the world is going to change. And this was never a simple procedure.
These are people that never lost their inner dignity, the authenticity of themselves, and the strength of their beliefs and values. A group of people that have consciousness of their duty, simply not to let the world change and just observe passively, helplessly and wounded by the developments of fate. A team that decided, not to surrender to events and their consequences, but to fight in a modest way, patiently, to create their own specifications and conditions of life, relations and work through inspiration, vision, as well as, groundbreaking actions. This team puts forward its consciousness, projecting, in a positive way and composing its dynamics of experience, knowledge of cultural and inherited elements that life and existence offers.
A team that holds deeply rooted the belief of the “Self and Team”. A team that functions, through a special framework, which, looks forward to (1) remove and satisfy in the most effective way its diversity in relation to outdated management ideas, applications and practices of today and, (2) preserve the hope for authentic and sustainable development, for the team and its environment, but also for anywhere else, it may be transmitted.
We start our course with a turtle’s pace- that is always proven more efficient than the rabbit’s speed-– SLOW MADE, SLOW FASHION REVOLUTION
We begin as a team of a few and we hope to become many, because we believe that we are all ONE – HOLISTIC
We begin considering that we have given a lot of space to the machines. We want to keep the Greek knitting tradition that mothers passed down to their daughters, alive. – HANDCRAFTED
We begin offering work to ourselves, but also to Greek people in need of work, evolution, inspiration and support to produce authenticity, strength, courage, solidarity, care and concern for the rest of our environment –SUSTAINABILITY , GIVE BACK TO GREECE
We begin in and from the whole world, not only from the local community. We consider that we are all citizens of our earthly society. –CLOBAL CITIZENS, FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE
We begin to create by taking care of the health and authenticity of everyone that made this happen, no matter if these agents/resources are participating or collaborating, are our customers or our raw materials. We begin by planning, creating, constructing, loving and caring, protecting the human dignity, fighting for freedom, becoming one with nature, strengthening our surroundings and spreading hope. All these, should be mirrored on us, on our products and services –AUTHENTICITY and LOVE
We begin by taking care of ourselves, our people, our environment, our sentiments, our spirit, and our development and evolution within the context of respect, support, safety, authenticity, dignity, love, freedom, trust. “Self and Team”
We don’t “see” just customers, but PEOPLE with individual personalities. We try to understand and cover the need for true joy, authentic relationships and satisfaction of everyone’s personal needs. We see the HUMAN whom we want to satisfy in order to reach personal satisfaction through this process and evolve sustainably. –CUSTOMIZATION
We don’t see any competitors or a competitive environment. We close our eyes and build through our heart and soul. We don’t see the war and we are not its agent. We simply have no enemy. –BY HAND, FROM THE HEART, WITH LOVE
We turn the pyramid upside down! We don’t believe in business hierarchies where few get the power, we believe in a family business structure where all voices are heard and creativity is maximized.
Finally, because words without actions, as we have already mentioned, have no value, and because we have already said too much as an introduction, we wish wholeheartedly that our identity, through our works and our deeds, remains authentic and through the pass of time fulfills our duty and our purposes.
And don’t forget, we are “NOBODY”…
Always take care of yourself, by being YOU!
