A big problem in the clothing industry is (still!) exploitation. 71% of clothing companies indicate there is a “likelihood of modern slavery occurring at some stage of their supply chain”. There are 152 million working children in the world, and 60% of these are involved in the clothing supply chain, often picking cotton in fields. Therefore I wanted to make sure I chose a small group of seamstresses I could get to know. My friends Shweta and Deepak introduced me to a team of 10 seamstresses, who specialise in baby clothing, based in Delhi. They're paid properly, have good quality sewing machines and they enjoy working together as a team. So for each additional purchase of Bambooties, we’re providing them with work they enjoy while also helping them to support their families.
