Who Made Your Clothes?

Just one year ago 1133 people died and more than 2500 we injured in the horrific collapse of the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh.

Fashion Revolution Day says enough is enough.  It is time we started to question who made our clothes.  The supply chain has become so complex that retailers no longer know who is making the clothes.  This distances us from those who actually stitch our garments.

I am going to wear something inside out, I have chosen a White Stuff long sleeve tee shirt.  I like White Stuff and am interested to find out if they can trace who makes their tee shirts, this one was made in Portugal.  What about the cotton it’s made from, I wonder where that came from too?

Jen over at My Make Do and Mend Year has written a great post explaining other ways you can get involved.
