We're Joining A Fashion Revolution

On 24 April 2013, 1133 people died in the Rana Plaza catastrophe in Dhaka, Bangladesh. A further 2500 were injured. They were killed while working for familiar fashion brands in one of the many ‘accidents’ that plague the garment industry.

1133 is too many people to lose from the planet in one factory, on one terrible day without that standing for something... So here at ReCreate, we're joining a Fashion Revolution!

Fashion Revolution is a global coalition of designers, academics, writers and business leaders calling for a reform of the fashion supply chain. Fashion Revolution sees the Rana Plaza disaster as a metaphorical call to action, and Fashion Revolution Day, to be held annually on the 24th of April, will keep the most vulnerable in the supply chain in the public eye.

So what can you do?

Just ask a simple question... “Who Made My Clothes?” Ask consumers, ask designers, ask brands, and ask all those who are involved in the production and purchase of garments. Demand to know who are the individuals who make your clothes and discover the organisations working on the field to make change happen.

One of the main reasons that ReCreate began was to make a positive difference in the lives of women in Cambodia.  By shopping with us you are bringing hope, empowerment and a strong future to the women who make your clothes. When our sewing centre began some of our students had never even held a pair of scissors, but today they are competent and skilled garment makers who receive fair wages with matched savings, an excellent working environment, and who love their jobs! Your choice can truly make a positive difference in the world.
