It is with great pride that we announce our partnership with an African-based cooperative in Mali that provides work for over 100 talented women in the textile industry. With a 100% organic upholstery line and a mission to promote work in natural and chemical-free environments, we’re raising the bar for ethical standards in artisan craft.
Mali is the eighth-largest country in Africa, and was once part of three West African empires that controlled trans-Saharan trade. Cotton is the country’s largest crop export. Using traditional bogolan tie-dyed indigo print, our artisans weave, spin, cut, and sew 100% organic cotton magic. In 2010, this co-op was recognized for its excellence in sustainable development by UNESCO.
