Cotonea is the world’s fourth-largest processor of fair organic cotton
TE’s Annual Benchmark Report 2018 recognizes Elmer & Zweifel as a company whose Cotonea brand has managed to balance the price challenges of the market and Cotonea’s ethical commitment to all the production companies involved. “Cotonea uses both its technical know-how and its fair organic cotton to produce high-quality products which are monitored all the way from the fibre to the final product.”
“As delighted as we are with the result, we are disappointed not to see any of the major manufacturers of organic cotton on the list, apart from Coop Switzerland. Organic and ethical – as far as we’re concerned, you can’t separate the two. Life in the countries of origin would improve significantly if “the big ones” insisted on fair standards, too”, is how Cotonea CEO Roland Stelzer sees the result.
For more than ten years Cotonea has been sourcing its cotton from its own organic and ethical projects in Kirgistan and Uganda. The TE Report 2016 for the first time listed Cotonea as one of the top ten brands with the highest organic cotton cultivation.

How does a customer know how “green” a textile manufacturer is?
Our sales representatives are often asked at fairs how a customer can know how “green” a textile manufacturer is. In concrete terms, the question is whether a producer or supplier really does what it claims to do.

Cotton requires only little water – when professionals are at work!
Who invented it, the fairy tale of thirsty cotton; who claimed it was true, repeated and spread it, thus making everyone believe it? Maybe the synthetic fibre industry? The truth is: cotton uses less water than all other common field crops! And in the end, farmers do have to cultivate some kind of crop.
