Become a Licensee
The COTTON USA Licensing Program
Licensees may utilize the COTTON USA™ Mark to highlight U.S. cotton products throughout the supply chain and at retail. COTTON USA™ supports partners with a range of value-added services, and the benefits of partnership are tangible. To qualify for a COTTON USA™ license, the products must contain greater than 50% U.S. cotton.
Mills, manufacturers, wholesalers, sourcing companies, brands and retailers can become licensees:
- OUTSIDE THE USA: To use the COTTON USA™ Mark on products sold outside the USA, all licensees (mills, manufacturers, wholesalers, sourcing companies, brands and/or retailers) must use >50% U.S. cotton in the products (garments, home textiles and non-wovens).
- INSIDE THE USA: To use the COTTON USA™ Mark on products sold inside the USA, the products must contain >50% cotton and 100% of the cotton must be U.S. cotton.
- BOTH: If a product is sold both outside and inside the USA, it must follow the guidelines for “INSIDE THE USA” to be licensed.
COTTON USA™ makes it easy for our licensees. We ask that you submit a verification form with your product information for review.
