Foutas and fair trade

Textiles in Tunisia are in the process of being certified fairtrade.In the meantime there are independent inspections made on behalf of international clothing manufacturers. Transfair (German) certifies the fair production of the cotton and has factories inspected in India, China, Malaysia and Tunisia that are part of the production process – spinning works, dyeing factories and sewing. Every year the testers
arrive. They want to know if the plant pays its workers living wages and grants them minimum vacation time.

Our main fouta suppliers are subject to this testing.
