Knowledge Cotton Apparel Melangé Flannel Shirt footprint

People

Dibella’s mission is to improve the livelihoods of small-scale, marginalised cotton farmers and textile workers. The factory is GOTS, Fairtrade and BSCI compliant. Dibella employs 420 workers, 97% of whom are women.

The organic cotton is Fair-trade certified and sourced from Chetna Organic who work with marginalised farmers from Maharashtra, Odessa and Andhra Pradesh towards improving their livelihoods and making farming a sustainable occupation.

Dibella runs a number of social projects called ‘sustainable development pillars’, these have a particular focus on women and children. The first pillar invests in education; providing equipment and resources to local schools. The second focuses on hygiene; by providing medical care, check ups and training on personal hygiene, particularly for women. This pillar is very important to Dibella and hygiene procedures have been upgraded due to Covid-19. The third pillar gives training in sustainable farming techniques and the fourth focuses on female empowerment. This is done through providing additional training opportunities to the women who work in the factory. 

Planet

Organic cotton helps farmers escape the health risks and financial burden of toxic chemicals involved in conventional cotton production. It also  benefits wider communities by maintaining (rather than draining) the local water supply and keeping it clean.

Knowledge Cotton Apparel's second and third tier suppliers (fabrics and raw materials) are based in the same geographical region as products are cut and sewn. This reduces the carbon footprint of their products compared to other fashion supply chains where inputs often cross back and forth around the world.

Organic cotton: India (GOTS certified) 

Shirt: Cut and sewn in India by Dibella Ltd (GOTS, SA8000 certified factory)

Areas For Development

GOTS living wage policy currently only requires that national legal standards are met. We’d love to see KCA collaborate with an organisation like the Fair Wear Foundation to advance the complex topic of a real living wage for garment workers.
