Behind the Seams
Creating a piece of clothing involves many different steps and people along the way. You, the consumer that wears the garment, are at one end. At the other end are the people that grow and harvest the cotton, weave the fabric, and cut and sew the final garment. As a consumer, it's very difficult to see all of the people in this long line of workers in the fashion industry. Most companies do not share who made their clothing. Our goal is to change that.
Transparency is severely lacking in the fashion industry. Unfortunately, all too often, child labor is used to make so much of today's clothing, especially in fast fashion. Additionally, many factories have unsafe working conditions. We must do better! On April 23, 2013 a building collapsed in Bangladesh killing 1,134 people and injuring over 2,500. This incident put a spotlight on the unsafe conditions in the fashion industry. To learn more about fast fashion and what you can do to effect change, read this post here.
