We were thrilled to bring back our Mingle Mentor Sessions to Texworld USA this January at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. Six of our most experienced and well-connected members joined us on the trade show floor to chat one on one with Texworld attendees who had questions about taking their fashion business to the next level. Among the Mingle Mentors was Nils Chaplet of Xoomba, producer of organic, fair trade cotton.

About Xoomba

Xoomba is a design company that intends to make fashion a harmless industry. By producing handmade organic clothing in Burkina Faso, Xoomba is creating sustainable livelihoods in Sub Saharan Africa and delivering products at prices that are accessible to everyone. Here are a few ways that  they stay true to their mission:

  • Using only local and organic materials
  • Working with local artisans
  • Making use of regional resources
  • Using low impact fiber, dyes, and threading
  • Refusing to use conventional or GMO cotton

We’re so excited about the world-changing work that Nils and the rest of the team at Xoomba are doing.
