Cotton made in Africa (CmiA) is the largest standard for sustainably produced cotton from Africa. CmiA improves the living and working conditions of 780,000 cotton farmers in sub-Saharan Africa and protects the environment by training smallholder farmers in Africa in sustainable and modern cotton cultivation methods, and by linking them to participants along the textile value chain. 50 million textiles carried the CmiA seal in 2016 and thereby set a sign for the future of sustainability in fashion. Partnering companies that use CmiA cotton for their products range from large multichannel retailers to high fashion and small brands worldwide.
