Going to India on Sunday

Strictly work – no pleasure involved, I will resolutely choose to dislike the lovely food, beautiful scenery and hot weather.

I’m going to visit some clothing factories and suppliers that are registered with fair trade in the UK, to see what kind of standards they keep, and importantly what stories they have to tell.

I find that quality control is a consistent problem with these small producers, and it requires a good deal of investment from the UK end if you arent going to go with a big soul-less producer. I prefer to support the smaller producers who are intentionally working to make people’s lives better.

Hopefully there’ll be some opportunity to blog while I’m there, only away for a few days at any rate.

  1. Hi,
    Good luck. Would love to hear your posts about the factories. We too are launching our line shortly and will be headed there on the same path as yours.
