Our sweatshirts are made from 100% organic cotton in a wind powered factory. Each one features features an artisanal 'mudcloth' fabric pocket hand-dyed in Mopti, Mali. As every run of fabric is one-of-a-kind, these pockets are what makes our sweatshirts truly unique.
Your sweatshirt will be delivered to you in our plant-friendly packaging along with a card detailing where the pocket was made and which one of our projects the funds will support.
In Mali we are setting up a seamstress school to provide opportunities for women to learn a skill and gain employment.
In buying this sweatshirt you are contributing to sustainable community-led projects across Africa. Profits returned to Mali will support the tribe from which this mudcloth originates. We are facilitating the creation of a business in Bamako which trains and supports women who have been in abusive relationships and forced marriages. With new skills they are able to gain employment and support their families, breaking the cycle of dependency on income from husbands or aid from charity organisations. Find out more
