SUSTAINABLE, TRACEABLE AUSSIE COTTON
Cotton Australia is interested in long-term partnerships with brands, retailers and manufacturers that would like to source Australian cotton, then tell the world all about it. If your company is interested in sustainable, traceable, high quality raw materials for your cotton products then we may be in business.
Australian cotton is suitable for a wide range of products including designer jeans, high-quality wovens, sheets and towels, basic tees and hoodies.
