fashion-brandsIn 2021, just two out of 63 fashion companies and retailers have provided a complete list of their textile manufacturing facilities. According to Fashion Revolution, a sustainable fashion campaign group, this is an increase of one from previous year. The investigation looked at 63 fashion companies and retailers’ supplier declarations, including JD Sports, John Lewis, and H&M. Only 29 companies have revealed information on their processing facilities, such as dye houses, and only 28, or little over half of the brands, have revealed information about their manufacturing facilities, such as fabric mills. In addition, 44% of brands have revealed their manufacturing locations. In comparison to the previous year, this represents a 13% rise. All textile production sites in major brands’ and retailers’ supply networks have been asked to be disclosed. Beyond the first rung of production, where millions of unseen employees are subjected to labor violations to produce clothing textiles, there is a need for openness. Although millennia advocate for sustainable fashion and social change, price and value sometimes overshadow the eco-friendliness of a fashion product. Despite the fact that this generation prioritizes environmentally friendly clothing and accessories, the industry does not provide them with enough options that also match their most critical purchasing criterion.
