Each of the four garment factories listed on the T-shirt have contributed to roughly 1,618 deaths, an equal amount of injuries and serial maiming that goes beyond human recognition.
With little regulation and protection of garment workers' rights and safety, these T-shirts are a call to #StopFastFashion and to show support for workers worldwide who deserve better treatment, wages and a new level of human respect.
Fashion can be done right. These T-shirts are made from an entirely traceable supply chain in North Carolina by TS Designs in Burlington.
All T-shirts are made of 100 percent North Carolina-grown, super-soft ringspun cotton, are certified “dirt to shirt,” and every shirt has a code that the wearer can use to see every member of the supply chain that made his or her product.
All graphics are created from water-based inks.
T-shirt design inspired by Experimental Jetset.
100 percent of proceeds go to the Clean Clothes Campaign to help with continued coverage and monitoring of working conditions in the global garment industry.
