Fairtrade International announced a new Fairtrade Textile Standard on 22 March 2016. The new Standard and Programme extends the Fairtrade approach to the entire textile supply chain

The new standard is based on Fairtrade’s existing Hired Labour Standard and focuses on working conditions, living wages and workers’ rights. The standard aims to empower factory workers and enable them to negotiate labour conditions independently. More information about the Fairtrade Textile Standard can be found on Fairtrade International’s website.
