TELL ME A FAIR TALE… Ever wonder where do your clothes really come from? Who made it? Where was the fabric materials made, grown or weaved? How many people did it take to stitch, press and pack it together? How much manpower and fuel did it take to get from their shore to yours?
Many Labels and Brands are starting to pave the way and have passed the accredited ethical manufacture process, for others they never really know if their stock was made by sweat shops, from another country or made of harmful dyes and chemicals.
I think more people are conscious these days of what they are buying and where their clothes come from. More people are caring about the future of keeping our beautiful planet sustainable.
