I saw this article yesterday in the http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2013/sep/06/picture-of-week-clothing-recycled# , kindly shared by Claire in the Handmade Design Store in Mullingar.
It reminded me of the huge (at the time) television documentary /expose on a few years ago all about how so many clothes found in may of our beloved clothes shops are made in sweatshops, sequins sew-on by children in refugee camps, people basically working incredibly hard , in horrendous conditions for next to nothing. At the time I had a lovely vest top from a certain shop which had the most beautiful design in sequins on it. When I bought the time I honestly did not give seconds thought to how on earth it was possible to make such an item for a few euro. Then I watched the documentary showing small children handsewing on sequins in refugee camps. I could never bring myself to wear the top again.
Food for thought!
Have a great evening,
