|What is FAIRTRADE CERTIFIED COTTON !|
The FAIRTRADE Mark guarantees that our cotton producers whose cotton we use in our printed t-shirts are given.
- A fair and stable price, set by the Fairtrade Foundation
- A Fairtrade Premium to invest in social and environmental projects
- The means to develop sustainable methods of farming avoiding pesticide use
- The opportunity to work with other farmers in democratic co-operatives
Our printed t-shirts are aimed at a fashion-conscious generation that demands the latest on-trend style, quality and value, but who also want to ensure their promotional clothing has been ethically produced.

In the first 9 months of 2008 over 18 million units of Fairtrade apparel were sold, an increase of 300% since 2007. In addition to consumer demand, an increasing number of towns are becoming Fairtrade, perhaps explaining growth within the Fairtrade workwear sector as councils are required to purchase a certain number of Fairtrade products. And 2009 should see more Fairtrade promotional t-shirts coming onto the market following a recent development. Last December, the Fairtrade Foundation announced a new composite cotton policy, meaning filled and blended cotton products can now become fully Fairtrade certified, which should lead to some product development in this sector.
So, despite the difficult financial climate, Fairtrade clothing is still experiencing steady growth and the outlook for 2009 is not looking too bleak. Fairtrade now benefits 7.5 million farmers who will also be feeling the pinch and the guaranteed Fair price will provide them with much needed stability and security over the coming year.
