Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a non-profit organization advocating for planting cotton in a sustainable way. From its establishment in 2009, in Geneva, Switzerland, BCI set out to eliminate unsustainable and self-destructive methods of cotton planting on a global scale.
It combined this goal with a vision of better occupational environments for farmers in cotton-growing countries, empowerment for working women in the field, and the end of child labor.

Looking for a new manufacturing base for your latest clothing designs? While Malaysia is often overlooked as a manufacturing destination for textiles, the Southeast Asian country has a long history as a textiles manufacturing hub in the region.
In this guide, we list some of Malaysia’s leading textiles manufacturers, many of which are based in and around Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru.
Can I expect lower prices compared to Chinese factories?
Malaysia has no advantage in terms of labor costs. Malaysian workers earn on average about as much as one in Mainland China. Further, Malaysia is less self-sufficient when it comes to fabrics, zippers, velcro and other components – which are often actually imported from China or other countries in ASEAN.
As such, you should not expect any price cuts when sourcing clothing manufacturers in Malaysia. That said, the country still has a highly competitive clothing and textiles manufacturing base standing on its own merits.
Another benefit is that English is an official language in Malaysia, making it far easier to communicate with your suppliers.
