Meet the producers

100% Fairtrade certified cotton, grown by co-operatives of farmers in Mali and Burkina Faso.

An estimated ten million people in West Africa depend on cotton production for their living, which has suffered from dramatically falling prices in recent years.

Producers of Fairtrade cotton are guaranteed to receive a fair, stable & sustainable price for their goods and the farming cooperatives also receive a Fairtrade premium: a payment to be invested in their communities or businesses. Farmer groups decide democratically where they will invest the payment and the cotton producers in Mali have been using their premium to dig a well and build a school and a health centre.
