Description

FALÉ is a rainfed, organic, ecological, ethical and sustainable cotton yarn. Unlike 90% of the cotton grown around the world, the cotton plants from which FALÉ comes are raised without any irrigation or any water supply, in the Tambacounda and Casamance regions, in eastern Senegal. Harvesting, carding and spinning are handmade, with the traditional techniques used for already 2 centuries, by nearly 200 women workers, more and more numerous, from different villages. FALÉ, in the Mandinka language, designates the traditional transformation of cotton into yarn. This magnificent project, which supports dozens of families, was launched by the Ateliers de la Filature, a very young local company with which Fonty has joined forces, which leads sustainable development projects around traditional local textiles, with strong commitments environmental, social, and ecological.

FALÉ yarn is certified organic by ECOCERT, and its manufacturing and marketing process is labeled "Fairtrade" by FAIRTRADE.

FALÉ is presented as skeins of natural ecru color, approximately 100g, untreated. Due to the very manual and very artisanal processes implemented, FALÉ yarn sometimes finds some vegetal waste (in particular delicate cotton flower debris) or some counting irregularities, which give it all its charm. It is a noble, sober and elegant yarn, full of symbols, original, which is very fun to knit. FALÉ should preferably be washed by hand, in cold water, with mild soap (Marseille soap, organic if possible), without spinning, drying flat.
