Garment manufacturer Gildan is supporting this year’s Fashion Revolution Week by highlighting people at every stage of its supply chain.

Through social media activity and a new video, it is spotlighting the people behind its yarn-spinning, textile and dyeing operations as well as those who sew and distribute the final product.

It is the sixth consecutive year that Gildan is participating in Fashion Revolution’s annual global movement working to elevate transparency in the clothing industry. It runs this week to Saturday (29 April).

Since 2013, Fashion Revolution has called on everyone to demand greater transparency from brands by asking #WhoMadeMyClothes? This year, it is asking a second question as well: #WhoMadeMyFabric?

Geneviève Gosselin, director of global communications and corporate marketing at Gildan, said: “By asking this simple question, Fashion Revolution has created a powerful reminder for customers to think beyond the end product and about the people who make their clothes at different stages of the production chain.

“Because we own our supply chain, from spinning our yarns to textile making, sewing and distribution, this campaign is a great opportunity for us to highlight our respect for our people and transparency, which has always been a longstanding priority for us and core to our business.”

Founded in the wake of the Rana Plaza disaster in 2013, Fashion Revolution has grown to become the world’s largest fashion activism movement, mobilising citizens, brands and policymakers through research, education and advocacy.
