the Economics of Happiness | Home Love Fashion Hate Sweatshops We love fashion. But the clothes we buy in the UK come at a terrible cost. Millions of workers around the world, mainly women, suffer poverty wages and exploitation producing cheap fashion for our shops. This can't go on. We demand a fashion industry that respects workers' rights. Our government must act now to protect the people who make our clothes. plugin not working on this platform Teens @ Newham Asian Women's Project War on Want's research on the sweatshop conditions facing the workers who make our clothes has made front page news and attracted attention nationwide. Sustainable change can only be achieved through legally binding regulation that protects the rights of workers supplying the UK high street. To get there, it is important we highlight how brands and retailers fail the workers who make our clothes - like the the 1,127 people, mainly female garment workers, who died in Bangladesh making clothes for the UK and high street - and hold them to account for their actions.

Flavia Aranha Biografia Poesia, leveza e contemporaneidade resumem o trabalho de Flávia Aranha. Nascida em Campinas, veio para São Paulo para cursar a faculdade Santa Marcelina e adotou a cidade como sua primeira casa. Modelagens atemporais, tecidos de algodão puro e tingimento com corantes naturais [como folhas, cascas de árvores e chá] estão presentes em todas as coleções, complementadas por uma linha de acessórios em couro de tilápia e vidro soprado — gotas transparentes que compõem brincos ou pingentes em longas e sutis correntes de prata. Desenvolve suas coleções com a mesma sutileza com que troca experiências com as comunidades que visita, para compor suas referências, inspirações e parcerias. Destas comunidades que produzem diversos tipos de matéria-prima que Flavia usa em suas peças, ela quer resgatar um trabalho artesanal que se perdeu no tempo e na vida das pessoas, através de reinvenções, buscando uma nova valoração da brasilidade.

The Label Doesn't Tell the Whole Story - Canadian Fair Trade Campaign The Canadian Fair Trade Network and ReThink Communications have teamed up and launched the "The Label Doesn't Tell the Whole Story" campaign. This campaign is aimed at bringing awareness to and getting people thinking, talking and taking action on ongoing issues within garment and textile production and manufacturing. This series of thought-provoking clothing labels have been photographed in a bid to raise awareness of the horrific plight of those toiling in sweatshops around the world. We're hoping that these images will make people think about the garments they are wearing and just where they have come from. Teaming up with the advertising agency Rethink, the photographs feature clothing labels telling the tragic stories of factory workers from Bangladesh, Cambodia and Sierra Leone. Each label says that the product is 100 per cent cotton - but adds that is not the whole story and follows on with a snap shot of just who could have made the item.
