Fair Trade Apparel

fta-full

Fair Trade Apparel is a fair trade brand that has served the US college market and US retail market since 2005. We are a sustainable solution and a catalyst for change in Bangladesh’s garment industry.

Currently we are re-conceptualizing production in our factories.

Our mission is to provide luxury fashion for an honest price, that mutually benefits factory workers, consumers and the environment.

Our Guiding Principles are:

  1. To select factories and producers committed to full compliance with internationally recognized labor standards, as embodied in national legislation, conventions of the ILO, and retailers/brands/university codes of conduct;
  2. To trade with factories and producers where forced labor and exploitative child labor are not allowed;
  3. To trade with factories and producers committed to:
    • Healthy and safe working conditions;
    • Equal employment opportunities provision for all workers;
    • Employees representation by a legitimate, representative labor union or other representative employee body;
  4. To pay factories and producers a fair minimum price that provides workers with a stable source of income as well as improved social services;
  5. To continuously develop more environmentally sound practices, such as organic cotton and natural dyes substitution options;
  6. To manage all aspects of trade, production and development with transparency and openness to public accountability.
