CHANGING MANUFACTURING FOR GOOD
EAA is a manufacturing & sourcing company that enables brands to diversify their supply chains through ethical production in West Africa.
Our vision is to deliver cost competitive, quality product while ensuring workers are respected, empowered, and paid living wages.
The frontier of apparel manufacturing is shifting to Africa, bringing with it opportunity to create millions of jobs for women but also risk of repeating these patterns of exploitation.
West Africa has the potential to be different. The region offers significant advantages to US buyers – competitive costs, duty-free status (15-32% saving vs Asia), and favorable logistics.
We founded Ethical Apparel Africa with the vision of shaping the industry in Ghana to ‘get it right from the start’.
We work with local women-owned factories and support them to make the leap to export while prioritizing the well being of their workers.
To do this, we leverage technology and lean management to create a virtuous cycle of productivity and investment in people.
We are on a mission to empower people and protect the planet
By 2030, will aim to create 10,000 sustainable jobs, over 70% for women
QUALITY & COMPLIANCE
Our on-the-ground experts ensure quality product manufactured in an environment that goes beyond compliance.
As costs rise in Asia, Africa offers brands long-term advantages due to the low cost of living as well as duty free benefits.
EAA is on a mission to create 10,000 worthwhile manufacturing jobs in West Africa by 2030 while shaping the emerging industry to prioritize people and protect the planet.
Our operating model is rooted in a deep commitment to improve workers’ lives.
We leverage a diverse global network of market-leading partners and suppliers. We provide our clients with the ease of US and Europe-based client service, the breadth of Asian raw material sourcing, and the value of African manufacturing.
