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. 

FOUNDING STORY

  • 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.

WHY WEST
AFRICA
 

As costs rise in Asia, Africa offers brands long-term advantages due to the low cost of living as well as duty free benefits.
