Where to buy sustainable ethical cotton for your home

by Sharon Ihama

It’s Fashion Revolution Week and we’re joining the revolution and asking who made our clothes. Here are five fantastic companies that are already doing the right things; all of these products are made from Fairtrade cotton.

Homes are a place of comfort, relaxation and indulgence. With these Fairtrade cotton linen and home wear brands you can rest contented because the people growing the raw materials will be too.

This means that the farmers and workers responsible for growing this crucial crop have been treated fairly. They receive a minimum price for their cotton and aren’t put at risk of exploitation. A further Fairtrade Premium is paid to their communities which can help fund important infrastructure to safeguard their livelihoods for the future. 

What’s more? You can even find Fairtrade cotton on the high-street!

Be part of the revolution. Join the campaign. Tag @FairtradeUK and ask your favourite brands #WhoMadeMyClothes?
