Who makes your clothes?

Always wanted to know who is behind the garments you print? Together with Fair Wear Foundation, we give our textile workers a face, and lots of respect. Find out everything about your printwear during our annual ‘I made your clothes’ campaign.

Fashion Revolution Week

Remember April 2013? The Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. It housed many garment factories manufacturing clothes for the biggest global fashion brands. More than 1,100 people – mostly young women – died in the collapse and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.

And even though B&C did NOT source garments from any of the factories in Rana Plaza, we agree that no one should die for fashion. That’s why we support the ‘Fashion Revolution Week’ that happens every April to commemorate the 2013 disaster and to strive for a just and equitable fashion system for people and our planet.

B&C stands for Fair Wear

Sustainability and responsibility are close to our heart. We prefer respectful long-term partnerships with our suppliers, to support the livelihoods of the people that make (y)our printwear. That’s why we are a member of the Fair Wear Foundation and amfori BSCI, adhering to the fair and sustainable criteria they stand for.

Through the Fair Wear Foundation, we support the Fashion Revolution Week to raise awareness and transparency about the working conditions behind the clothes we produce. But we go a step further with our annual ‘I made your clothes’ campaign.

Who makes (y)our clothes?

With the ‘I made your clothes’ campaign, the Fair Wear Foundation wants to trigger brands to communicate more openly about the people that work in the garment factories. At B&C, we gladly join this initiative. During one week, we put the garment workers from our partner factories in the spotlights.

As an additional initiative, we have a 24 hour Q&A session, during which our sustainability specialist answers all your questions ‘live’ about our supply chain and the working conditions in our partner factories and how we make sure they uphold social and sustainable standards.

But you don’t have to wait till the campaign, you can also read all about it in our sustainability blog!
