Fairtrade India made the largest T-shirt of 62 × 39.4 ft using Fairtrade organic cotton at Trio World School, Bengaluru, Karnataka on Nov 21, 2014. Made from yarn spanning 5,140km (more than the 3,643-km distance from Srinagar to Kanyakumari), it was unveiled at Phoenix Market City Mall as part of the first Fairtrade Weekend (Nov 21-23, 2014), organised by Fairtrade India, a social enterprise working to empower marginal farmers. Around 380 kg seed cotton from Fairtrade member farms went into creating the yarn. Youngsters were given 5,000 fabric patches to write/ paint colourful messages to express solidarity with farmers. Some 3,400 messages were stitched on the T-shirt.
