Galeb d.d. was founded in 1951 and is Croatia’s leading underwear producer until this very day.
The fact that we have our own knitting plant, along with finishing and garment facilities, which are technologically well equipped allows us to react quickly to our client’s demands. Galeb has always paid attention to quality and comfort of our products. All of our products are Oeko-Tex certified (from 1997), which indicates that raw materials and technological processes meet strict environmental criteria. Also, since the February of 2007 all of our products are bearers of the Croatian quality label awarded by Croatian Chamber of Economy. Besides domestic buyers, many of our international partners are became familiar with quality of our products, since galeb exports 50% of its production, mainly to Western European countries.
When selecting raw materials, Galeb only works with reputable suppliers of European origin, which results in a product that meets the highest quality and environmental standards. From the February of 2007, we are proud bearers of Croatian quality label, awarded by Croatian Chamber of Economy. As a confirmation of high ecological standards of raw materials used in manufacturing process, knitwear and final products, Galeb owns the Oeko-Tex certificate, awarded by the best known institute for quality certification in Germany, Textil-Service-Verglas-und Zertifizierungsstelle from Hohenstein. Every year product samples are sent to the Institute to ensure quality and to prolong validity of the certificate.
Since 2010 Galeb bears the Best Buy certificate for male underwear. Only the products which Croatia’s citizens found to offer the best price-quality ratio in tested category can be given the distinctive blue “Best Buy Award”. The interesting thing is that Galeb d.d. is the only company from Dalmatia which won the first place in its category (research was conducted for 300 categories). Galeb has won a leading (No. 1.) position in the category “Best Buy Award – Male underwear best price-quality ratio”.

During years of gaining experience and endeavoring to satisfy clients’ needs in all age groups Galeb created within its production program the following product brands: Galeb, Adriatic and GLB.
All three brands have their basic collections (NOS) and are presented twice a year (spring/summer and autumn/winter) through seasonal collections. The basic collection consists of articles in basic colors (most often white and black) for which the market expresses continuous interest. The basic collection represents the majority portion of sale within the total sale of Galeb assortment. Through its seasonal collections Galeb steps forward to following world fashion trends. In that way we are making efforts to always and again offer something new to our existing clients, whereas to give one reason more to potential new clients to become a part of the large family of the Galeb products’ users.
