I am the founder and CEO of My Fair Label L.L.C., a start up fair trade and organic fashion company that collaborates with women's cooperatives in West Africa to produce clothing and accessories for the US market.
My Fair Labels' goal is to provide a sustainable income to its producer partners, allowing them to grow their businesses and improve their lives. Based on the principle of "trade not aid", this business provides a platform for quality and skillfully made African handicrafts to compete on an international scale.
With respect to the environment, we use sustainable materials that are either organic, recycled or repurposed.
Additionally, a percentage of profits from My Fair Labels' sales is reinvested in capacity building projects such as skills training programs that benefit its producer partners.
