H&M cuts cotton ties with Omo Valley

Written by John Mowbray

WAKEFIELD – H&M has become the second major retail brand to tell Ecotextile News that it will not be using any cotton in its clothing which has been sourced from the Omo Valley in Ethiopia. H&M's announcement follows closely on the back of Tchibo's statement last week in which the German company said that Ethiopian Cotton Made in Africa will now be its only source of Ethiopian cotton in its products due to concerns about cotton projects in the Omo Valley. Ayka Investment, the Turkish business heavily involved in the Ethiopian textile industry, is now withdrawing its investment in cotton production in the Lower Omo Valley on the advice Tchibo.
