“My name is Zalissa, I am 24 years old and I am single. This job is my first job and my choice for life. Thanks to the support of CABES, I am now a professional weaver with a professional artisan card and a national certificate. The teamwork with Fatoumata Songnaaba allows us to produce faster and reduces the defects. Working on this order enabled me to contribute to my young brother’s school fees and to take care of my own needs. I am very happy to be part of this network and to produce for international brands”.


“My name is Yameogo Angeline, I am 41 years old and I am mother of 4. I started this job 2 years ago and I like it so much. Thanks to this job, I have a better income and I can better contribute to take care of our children. Thanks to the collaboration with CABES, I have been trained on how to dye using GOTS certified dyes. I would like to thank CABES and all the partners who usually make orders. Thanks to you, I can save some money, take care of my children and support my husband”.

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.
