Where are you wearing?

Are you the kind to check out clothing labels to find out where your clothes are manufactured? Would you wonder who made your shirt, and what kind of life he/she might lead? Would you even consider to call up the manufacturer’s office, so that you can arrange for a trip to meet the people that made your shirt?

Well, Kelsey Timmerman did all of the above.

His T-shirt was made in Honduras, jeans in Cambodia, underwear in Bangladesh and flipflops in China.
He even spent upclose sessions with workers from Cambodia, China and Bangladesh to have first-hand experience of how they lead their lives. Though he writes in a conversational narrative style, his accounts have brought to light certain issues of apparel manufacturing economics and humanitarian situations.
