By Co-Founder Fashion Revolution, Orsola De Castro

The majority of the people who make clothes for the global market live in poverty, unable to afford life’s basic necessities. Many are subject to exploitation; verbal and physical abuse, working in unsafe and dirty conditions, with very little pay. Fashion Revolution created a movement around the world about Who Made My Clothes?
