Fashion Revolution 2021

20—April 2021

It's Fashion Revolution Week and our teams across New Zealand and Australia are getting involved to amplify the campaign for transparency within clothing and textile supply chains, asking #WhoMadeMyClothes? and #WhoMadeMyFabric?

Fashion Revolution Week
Apr 20 2021

Here at The Fabric Store, we are huge supporters of home sewing and the #MeMade movement! We appreciate and celebrate the time, effort, and care that goes into creating garments by hand. The experience of sewing an item of clothing by hand teaches us the true value of a ready-to-wear garment and gives us an understanding of the skill of all workers involved in its production.

This year Fashion Revolution is calling for individuals to ask #WhoMadeMyFabric? This is to highlight all of the workers right through the supply chain of the fashion industry focusing not only on garment workers through questioning #WhoMadeMyClothes but including farmers, pickers, weavers, dyers, spinners, printers, knitters, finishers and more. We believe bringing these conversations into the light will lead to better transparency within the fashion industry, more thoughtful purchasing decisions from consumers and increasing awareness of treatment, conditions, and rights for those who work in the industry.

Find out about our approach to Sustainability and Supply Chain transparency here!

In celebration of Fashion Revolution Week our teams across New Zealand and Australia have been sharing a bunch of wonderful #MeMade creations with us! We hope this inspires you to take action by asking your favourite brands #WhoMadeMyClothes, #WhoMadeMyFabric and #WhatsInMyClothes?
