Fairtrade

Fairtrade certified clothing is a market based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions. The cotton in products with Fairtrade certification has been grown by farmers who receive a fair deal for their work. In addition to their salary they also receive a premium which goes towards projects within their local community such as building a school or establishing access to water. These factors are at the very heart of the Fairtrade clothes industry.

Everyone in the supply chain, from the certified producer organisations through to the companies licensed for the consumer-ready product, must be registered by one of the FLO Labelling Initiatives or FLO-CERT. All registered companies are subject to independent audits to ensure compliance with Fairtrade standards. At present, the only material that the Fairtrade Foundation certifies is cotton
