100% ORGANIC COTTON
This Uniform cap is made of GOTS-certified 100% organic cotton, woven in a delicate plain-weave, giving the caps a casual look. The cotton is GOTS-certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) and coloured in azo free dyes, meeting strict standards.
WE BELIEVE IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE
The cotton used in our Uniform Collection is woven, coloured and treated by Thanapara Swallows, a World Fair Trade-certified non-profit organization striving to empower the poor and underprivileged female population in the Thanapara village in northwestern Bangladesh. By working with Thanapara Swallows, we contribute to create economic and social awareness as well as to make marginal women self-reliant and independent in an unequal society.
The NGO was founded in 1973 as part of the Swedish organization The Swallows, in an effort to strengthen and stabilize the area of Thanapara after the Liberation War. Ever since, the organization has overseen many empowering projects spanning different areas such as agriculture, primary schools, day care centers, fair-trade production, health care, human rights, micro-credits, training and sanitation. These are partly funded by our fabric production, and the goals of the projects are to improve self-sufficiency for people in the area.
