Fair Trade cotton

Interesting to see M & S competing in the market for fair trade cotton goods. Potential exporters are manufacturers located in Palestine.
Freedom Clothing Project imports cotton goods and invests in small livelihood projects. They support cotton production in Turkey which is then sent to a manufacturer in Bethlehem who produce high quality tee-shirts. I have samples of their goods and recommend any who are interested in supporting fair trade in general, or Palestinian producers in particular to contact them.

The state of the economy in Bethlehem was highlighted during the recent tour by church leaders. In parts of the West Bank, such as Nablus, the economy is in a state of collapse.
