Fashion Revolution Day

We know who made our clothes...

Here Today Here Tomorrow has been working with Fair Trade artisan since 2011. It is never just one person who designs or makes clothing or accessories, it is a whole chain of people working both together and separately. We recognise the importance of valuing each person in the process and of building strong relationships based on trust and respect, which helps understanding from one person to another. Humans make clothes, not machines, machines are just the tools we use. Once we begin to understand this we value and appreciate so much more the clothes we wear.

Our fabulous knitters in Nepal sent us this picture, sporting HTHT knitwear pieces they have helped us develop. We try to visit Nepal every year to work with this talented group of craftspeople, to ensure we have personal connections with them and so that we can say with confidence we know the people who make our clothes earn a fair wage, are treated with respect and enjoy many other benefits of fair trade. More details here.

Fashion Revolution Day is an opportunity to recognise the gross inequalities and malpractice that exist in the fashion industry, to show solidarity with those campaigning for change and to champion brands that show fairer and more sustainable approaches are possible.

Fashion Revolution Day
#FashRev #whomadeyourclothes


Get talking and making with us at at our studio shop
Saturday 25th April 2015
From 12pm-5pm

This Saturday, we invite you to see how your clothes are made. We'll be on hand to demonstrate machine knitting, garment sewing and natural dyeing. All the workshops are free so drop in anytime. We want to inspire our customers to be curious about where their clothes come from, who made them and to learn new skills.

This Friday marks the two year anniversary of the collapse of Rana Plaza, a garment factory complex in Dhaka, Bangladesh. 1,133 workers were killed, over 2,500 were injured and countless families continue to be affected by the disaster.

Social and environmental catastrophes in fashion supply chains continue.
Fashion Revolution Day says enough is enough.
 
In remembrance of the victims and to take a stand against how the fashion industry operates we are asking you to get involved. Be active with us this Saturday and join the worldwide movement to question more closely how our clothes are made.
