Sustainable Fashion

Everything you want to know about the sustainability of the textile and fashion industry

The garment industry has always been and remains to be one of the most female-dominated industries. In the Asia-Pacific region, which comprises major garment-producing countries, women make up the majority of the textile sector workforce, accounting for 70% of workers in China and reaching up to 90% in Cambodia. Unfortunately, the lack of appropriate working conditions for these women in most garment-producing countries remains a devastating unresolved issue. Underpaid earnings with grueling schedules, harsh and unsafe working environments, and the lack of access to healthcare and insurance are only a few examples of the significant unjust problems faced by women working in the industry on a daily basis.
