Our Cotton

The cotton we use for our T-shirts are organically grown by a group of cooperative farmers in India. The program is called Chetna Organic.

CHETNA ORGANIC

Chetna Organic is a unique 360° development intervention for smallholder (&tribal) farmer families primarily dependent on rainfed agriculture. Chetna was established with the primary aim of enhancing their livelihood options through making their farming systems more profitable and sustainable. Chetna focus states include Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Odisha and with specific technical services extended to other states.
The Chetna Organic & Fair Trade Cotton Intervention Program started in 2004 as a composite pilot on Organic / Non-Pesticide Management (NPM) & Fair-trade supply chain development,in response to the agrarian crisis in India. The intent was to improve livelihood options of smallholder farmers by making their farm systems more sustainable, profitable and creating access to ethical and fair-trade markets in cotton.

THE FACTORY

Rajlakshmi Cotton Mills Pvt. Ltd (RCML) - India’s one & only 100% Organic and Fairtrade garmenting company, has been a longstanding partner and the strongest supporter for Chetna Organic since  inception. Initially, RCML purchased almost all cotton produced by the Chetna and continues to be one of the most consistent and substantial buyer. In 2008, Chetna Organic through its cooperatives picked up a 10% stake in RCML.

This relationship provides many additional benefits including the creation of contracts from the beginning of the season to secure bank loans for farmers, access to pre-finance of over 50 percent of the cotton harvest, and importantly active participation of brands in community development projects such as supporting schools, vocational training centers, eco-centers, women enterprises (incl. tailoring units), creating revolving funds, etc. in remote villages – all as a result of the integrity demonstrated in the Chetna supply chain and further complimenting the Fairtrade premiums.
