Fairtrade has been working with cotton farmers since 2010. Most of our cotton comes from farmers who struggle with low incomes. Rising costs of production, fluctuating market prices, decreasing yields and climate change are daily challenges, along with food price inflation and food insecurity. Fairtrade supports cotton farmers disadvantaged by global trade, enabling them to sell their goods at a decent price so they can provide for themselves and their families. It also requires that the factories that process Fairtrade cotton comply with ILO (International Labour Organization) core conventions.

And our Textile Standard goes beyond this by working with manufacturers to improve wages, educating workers on their rights and working conditions, and engaging clothing brands to commit to fairer terms of trade.
