“My name is TEBI Madou, I am 45 years old and I am father of a young boy. I am an independent entrepreneur in the textile sector. This order was good because it contributed to my monthly income. This money helped me to take care of my child and to support myself. I wish the collaboration to continue because it brings a lot of benefit to us.”


“My name is Habou Elie, I am 32 years old. I am an artisan and the manager of INOVATEX. I have chosen this work because I am developed a passion for it. I believe in it and it helps me support myself and my family. The collaboration with CABES brings a lot of advantages to us as a cooperative and to artisans individually. This particular order is also part of what makes this collaboration successful. I thank LUKHANYO and wish a continuous collaboration”.

People first. Fair supply chain. Living wages. Dignified working conditions.

We carry out a Social Impact Report for every collection made in collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative. 

Social workers are embedded in the communities in which we work, and closely monitor the implementation of our code of conduct. 

Extensive data is collected to carefully measure the impact of each order, to ensure that the work is positively impacting the lives of the artisans and that our projects are working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
