These tees were part of a major campaign brought to the catwalks of London Fashion Week, Ghana Fashion Week and Africa Fashion Week Los Angeles by Africa Fashion Guide and Jacqueline Shaw.
Our African cotton tees were created as a campaign for the African cotton farmers.
The root and the rationale behind this campaign has been grounded by reports such as The Fairtrade Foundation recent report called ‘The Great Cotton Stitch-Up’.
This highlighted complaints especially by cotton farmers from the developing C-4 countries (Cotton 4) – Mali, Burkina Faso, Chad and Benin – in regards to their struggles and the fact that subsidies that the EU and USA farmers receive that African farmers do not makes it difficult for them to compete internationally.
One of the major problems is the value chain of African cotton and that this value is often lost due to the exporting of the raw cotton out of the continent.
This original awareness campaign in 2012 included interviews with cotton farmers, cotton specialists, reviews on cotton programs and in particular reviews and highlights from sustainable initiatives like Cotton Made in Africa, the breakdown of projects in Africa which are using African cotton and speaking with designers who use African cotton in their collections
