The development of a collection of textile products in organic cotton with natural indigo is in process with Liz Cooper

The initial results…

For information: a cushion cover like this one uses 3 metres of strips of cotton cloth (15cm wide). It is woven in 3 hours in the village of Makanding using 120 grams of ngessé (fine yarn) which is carded and spun in about 20 hours by a woman from the same village.

The weaver and the spinner both earn 600 F for their work, despite the fact that the woman has spent 7 to 8 times as long as the man.

This hand-processed organic cotton chain, as part of ENDA’s project entitled “Developing fair trade practices in Senegal”, is analysed with local populations, distributors, and consumers, in order to define a fairer distribution of profits between the different actors in the chain.
