Sustainability put into practice along the entire value chain - our transparent supply chain

The textile value chain is long and full of challenges. Dibella assumes responsibility here and is committed to human rights, environmental protection and health. Sustainability that benefits everyone involved. We have adopted the high standards of GOTS and FAIRTRADE because quality needs standards.

Follow our transparent supply chain from its beginnings with small farmers! 

Our textiles with the GOTS Fairtrade certificate set quality standards right from the start.

1. Small farmers

Our textiles with the GOTS Fairtrade certificate set quality standards right from the start. During the cultivation of organic cotton by small farmers, the following requirements are already met:

  • Use of organic seeds
  • Environmentally friendly cultivation
  • Higher income
  • Neither child nor forced labour

2. Cooperatives

The cooperative supports the small farmers, for example, through the guaranteed purchase of the cotton harvest. The “roof” of the cooperative offers security and other advantages:

  • Purchase of cotton at fair prices
  • Training and support for farmers
  • Investments in regional infrastructure projects
