Continental Clothing Co. is a registered licensee of the Fairtrade Labelling Organisation (FLO), licence no: FFLC0862
All the products displaying the Fairtrade Mark are produced from cotton that is Fairtrade certified and sourced from Fairtrade producers.
Cotton is the world's oldest commercial crop and one of the most important fibre crops in the global textile industry. Lots of us care about how we look – and buying clothes made with Fairtrade cotton means we can be a follower of fashion and at the same time help low paid cotton farmers around the world.
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers. It's about supporting the development of thriving farming and worker communities that have more control over their futures and protecting the environment in which they live and work. And it's your opportunity to connect with the people who grow the produce that we all depend on. When you buy products with the FAIRTRADE Mark, you support farmers and workers as they work to improve their lives and their communities.
The Mark means that the Fairtrade ingredients in the product have been produced by small-scale farmer organisations or plantations that meet Fairtrade social, economic and environmental standards. The standards include protection of workers' rights and the environment, payment of the Fairtrade Minimum Price and an additional Fairtrade Premium to invest in business or community projects.
Fairtrade works to benefit small-scale farmers and workers, who are amongst the most marginalised groups globally, through trade rather than aid to enable them to maintain their livelihoods and reach their potential.
For certain products, such as cotton, Fairtrade only certifies small-scale farmer organisations. Working through democratic organisations of small-scale farmers, Fairtrade offers rural families the stability of income, which enables them to plan for the future.
