Who Made Your Pants?

Most of our clothes are manufactured in dark, crowded factories, like Rana Plaza was, the sweatshop that collapsed, killing many workers.

We don’t know the names of the men and women sewing, dyeing and embellishing the clothes we love. We probably never will.

Shops like Primark or H & M are brilliant for affordable, every day bits, and most of us don’t even think of the human cost.

Who Made Your Pants? aim to change that.

They make ladies underwear – in a range of sizes, styles, colours, fabrics and give them funny names like Hay Mears (camo print with a lace trim) or Lady Dynamo.

They send your pants out in a little brown box, which fits through the letterbox, lovingly wrapped and with a note telling you the names and a little bit about the people who made your pants.

You can order one offs or sign up for a year in pants – gorgeous pants selected for you by the team delivered once a month.

They are a charitable bunch and were involved in the Fashion Revolution earlier this year.

Follow them on Twitter or buy some pants and find out who made your pants!
