We received a lovely message from a customer:
"My respect for not only your pretty designs, but mostly and above everything else for the way you have these fabrics and garments manufactured.
It feels better paying a fair price for something than knowing that possible *savings* are at the expense of another's health and freedom."
"For example, consider one of Kernaghan’s most horrifying exposés: In 2011 he penned a report on Classic, the largest factory in Jordan. Management hired young women from Asia, stripped them of their passports, forced them to work grueling hours for awful pay under a managerial regime that subjected them to routine rape. One woman hung herself in the factory’s bathroom with her own scarf after allegedly being raped at the hands of a manager. The Jordanian Department of Labor, when informed of the abuses, did nothing."
“Fashion retailers just can’t plead ignorance any more. Some of the issues in these economies around child labour and unsafe practices are having major ramifications on brands as consumers speak out against fast fashion houses and vote with their wallet,” Seary says.
