“My name is Fatoumata, I am 34 years old and I am mother of 3. This work is a reason for pride because it is a good source of income. Regular orders are the reason why we are still here. I love this work and I hope that CABES and its partners will continue to support us through orders. This order particularly helped me get more than the usual level of income. The money I received will contribute to support my Children wellbeing.”


“My name is Thérèse, I am 25 years old. I started weaving on a small loom 4 years ago before getting trained by CABES to work on wide looms. The training I got upgraded my skills and allowed me to take part to the production of this order. I am happy of this collaboration with CABES because it gives me a good part of my regular monthly income. Our atelier is changing thanks to the support of EFI and CABES. It is also thanks to business partners through regular orders.”

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.
