GOTS case study on Sunflag Tanzania
Faces From Field to Fashion is a behind-the-scenes journey to the heart of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), and an introduction to the sights, sounds, and faces behind every GOTS product. Representing more than 4 million employees working in GOTS certified facilities around the world, eight individuals give us a glimpse into their lives and tell us how they have been impacted by GOTS in unscripted and candid video portraits.
In Episode 4, we join Eliudi at Sunflag Tanzania to see the spinning stage of organic fibre processing. The Sunflag Group began in the 1930’s under the principles of respecting human rights and environmentally conscious production practices. Sunflag Tanzania had the first GOTS-certified facility on the African continent. Eludi has worked at Sunflag since 1995. Watch his story to hear about how the company has impacted him, and how it is helping the next generation in his community.
