Last April 24th, on the first anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, the organization Fashion Revolution launched the first Fashion Revolution Day, urging people to ask "Who Made My Clothes?" using the hashtag #whomademyclothes to request that brands be more transparent when it comes to production. Tens of thousands of people in 60 countries participated in Fashion Revolution Day, showing a growing concern for this transparency, and support for reform in the fashion supply chain.
At Far & Wide Collective, we are very proud to say that we can tell you exactly who made each product on our site, how, and under what conditions. We work directly with our artisans, or through trusted organizations who we have close contact with. Most of our producers create products in their own homes or through workshops and they are always paid the asking price for their products. We love to talk about the artisans we work with and are always happy to answer any questions you may have about them or the processes by which we get our products.
Today, on the second anniversary of this tragic event, we invite you to meet our artisans, and urge you to join the Fashion Revolution and ask the important question – Who Made My Clothes?
