“My name is Kaboré Sipoko Antoinnette, I am 39 years old, and I am mother of four. I have joined AZPF four years ago. I started weaving at home on a small loom. I have chosen this work because it helps me to take care of my children and to support my husband. I am very happy to work on international orders. The money I usually get from the work is mostly spent in my children school fees and food. Thanks to the collaboration with CABES and its partners, I have a professional artisan card and I have created a saving account for me and for my children and I am proud of it.”

Thanks to it, I am now able to cover my needs and to take care of my children. I really appreciate the collaboration with CABES because it gives us a lot of opportunities. Thanks to this collaboration with CABES, I have been trained on how to dye using GOTS certified dyes. I would like to thank all actors that value our work”.

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.
