This week is #FashionRevolutionWeek. It’s a brilliant initiative encouraging people to think about where their clothes come from and how they are made.
But it’s not just fast fashion that causes indignity and suffering. I’ve often wondered when the interiors industry will catch up and why we are more concerned with the ethics of coats than chopping boards. As well as asking #WhoMadeMyClothes, I’d love to see people asking “Who made my tea towel?" The hashtag may not be quite so catchy but, as with fashion, if your homewares seem like a bargain, it's likely that someone somewhere is being exploited, or that the environmental impact of the item's production has been overlooked.
