Summary Once it has left the hands of the farmer, Fairtrade cotton passes through a long and complex supply chain of workers who gin, spin, knit, dye, cut and trim the raw product into consumer items such as t-shirts, bed sheets and baby clothes.

Textiles workers throughout the supply chain are often squeezed to deliver more products on shorter deadlines for lower pay and fewer benefits. Fairtrade’s ambition is to improve the conditions of people working in the entire textile supply chain for Fairtrade cotton
