What Cooee is all about
Cooee is a new sustainable kids clothing brand that makes beautiful everyday kids clothes for children aged 2-7. Cooee has been set up with social responsibility and good ethics at our core to ensure that the entire production process supports the Ugandan people who make the clothes - from the farmers to the seamstresses. All our products are made sustainably from 100% Africa cotton (100% CmiA-Certified). The cotton is hand picked and is natural non toxic, non GMO Cotton Made in Africa cotton. Our clothes all feature unique hand-drawn print designs to engage children's imagination. Co-founders Anna and Naomi met while living in Uganda, Africa and found a mutual desire to explore the fabulous cotton available in the country.
Cotton made in Africa (CMiA)
At Cooee we are proud to be partners with CMiA www.cottonmadeinafrica.org. We use 100% CMiA Certified Cotton to ensure our cotton clothes have been produced with respect to both people and nature. Cooee believes in the development and empowerment of people, both through our staff and though the fabulous raw materials that we use to create our beautiful products.
Cotton made in Africa is an initiative of the Aid by Trade Foundation (AbTF) which helps smallholder cotton farmers in Africa to improve their living conditions.
As part of the CmiA Certificate small farmers are assisted to improve their living conditions and those of their children. Child labor, dangerous pesticides and genetically modified cotton are strictly forbidden. Smallholder farmers get a fair and timely payment and are trained in modern, efficient and sustainable cotton farming practices. This helps the farmers to generate higher yields and incomes.
