    Who Made My Clothes: The Garment Worker Diaries

    The Garment Worker Diaries is a year-long research project focused on the lives and wages of 540 garment workers in Cambodia, Bangladesh and India. Tamsin speaks to Guy Stuart and Eric Noggle from Microfinance Opportunities, the lead project researchers, to unpack what the garment workers earn and buy, what their working and living conditions are like, and what sorts of things they do to get by on their very low income. We dig deep into the data to reveal just how much economic, workplace and home life stress the women face. This is the second episode in the 3-part series from Fashion Revolution: “Who Made My Clothes?”

Who Made My Clothes

We all need to deepen our appreciation for the labour involved in creating the clothes we are privileged to wear. A glance at the origins of many of our garments will reveal that our choices help contribute to the problems we hear of in this podcast series. The change begins with me.

Who Made My Clothes

The fact that I am listening to this podcast indicates that I come from a place of privilege. This is an excellent podcast for anyone who cares about the ethical treatment of all humans and especially the women who are dominate in the garment industry. It is our responsibility to spread the word on the poor treatment of our fellow humans who are making our clothes for less than livable wages where large companies are benefitting off cheap labour so they can offer us fast fashion we barely end up wearing. This podcast is revolutionary and I hope you listen to this and tell all of your friends!
