The Ethical Fashion Initiative is a flagship programme of the International Trade Centre (a joint agency of the United Nations and World Trade Organization). We enable the luxury fashion industry to work with marginalized artisans in Africa and Haiti. In Ghana, we work with and support Africa’s rising fashion talent, promoting sustainable businesses and fulfilling creative collaborations with artisans. The Initiative facilitates the access to employment and income generation to improve the livelihoods of marginalised artisan communities, particularly women.
