Sophistication meets comfort. De Tiamo's stunning linen range offers the best of all worlds, from office space to weekend picnics you are covered. Not only is the quality exceptional but the fit is perfect too. It's very difficult not to buy one of each of the beautiful items De Tiamo has to offer. I cannot wait to flaunt my Dani shorts during the December holidays. Effortlesly classy and comfy - what a win!

I visited the Detiamo Clothing shop at Terbodore (Curry's Post) over the weekend.. what a delightful experience, friendly staff and beautiful handcrafted linen clothing amongst other tempting items. Even more inspiring is the heart-warming story behind the name and the incredible success Detiamo has achieved in a short space of time. Well Done Detiamo !

I bought the Zina linen Tank Top from DE TIAMO and was impressed with the quality. A good choice if you are looking for something breezy and comfy to wear for the summer. My order was delivered quickly and without any hassle. Definitely recommend!

A brilliant store with beautiful bespoke clothes and Birkenstocks. The staff and manager are incredibly helpful and customer service was exceptional. Five star experience 🙏🌼

Every successful entrepreneur will tell you a similar story: you quickly learn to embrace failure as a learning opportunity and need to consistently maintain a growth mind-set to keep your goals in focus. And add one more attribute – courage for the times you need to take that leap of faith! Debbie, the founder of the popular DE TIAMO ladies Linen fashion clothing range, looks back on her journey, fondly remembering her first sewing machine which was gifted to her as a teenager by her mother.

That ignited her passion for sewing and design. She trained as an image consultant and worked in that field, dressing corporate clients for success. Debbie constantly honed her deign and sewing skills, soon applying these in a factory setting, expanding her range to include tennis wear and later soft home accessories. These layers of experience and skills laid the foundation that enabled her to realise her dream and gave her the creative freedom to design and launch her own fashion range. 

The challenge for many of us is how to put together a co-ordinated look that looks great, is fuss-free and easy to wear and can be layered for all weather conditions while creating texture and visual interest. And this is where Debbie’s expertise shines. She realised there was an opportunity in the fashion industry for an exclusive range of women’s clothing, classically styled and immaculately finished that would enable women to build a foundation wardrobe that flattered all body types.

“I wanted to create the type of clothing I enjoy wearing – timeless designs in top-quality fabric, featuring Euro-chic styling and finished to international standards. And thus DETIAMO was born – a range of smart-casual garments with seasonal additions of pop colours and new styles.

It was important to me to get the right fabric and I searched until I sourced top quality natural linens that breathe and drape well for comfort and elegance. I wanted my range to have international style with African heart.”

Debbie adds “I enjoy the challenge of enhancing each woman’s self-image; when you know you are looking your best you feel wonderful – poised and ready for success!” Her collection is designed to suit all ages and her carefully selected colour range allows for effortless mix and matching of dresses, tops, pants, shorts and jackets – while maintaining understated glamour.

Debbie has also sourced an exciting selection of accessories – both local and international – chosen to complement the linen garments. What is remarkable about Debbie’s entrepreneurial journey, is that she has opened up unique opportunities for a team of ladies she has mentored: from training them to become expert seamstresses, how to operate in the retail market and how to co-ordinate product launches.

This has broadened their horizons while up-skilling them in ladies linen fashion trends globally. Inside each DE TIAMO garment you will find a swing-tag proudly bearing the name of the seamstress who constructed it. Now that Debbie has realised her dream of producing her distinctive fashion label, what is next? It appears that Europe beckons with the launch of the range in the UK this July and then to expand into Europe. It seems as though there will be no stopping DE TIAMO.
