Who Made Your Clothes: The Beautiful People Who Create Our YPC Pieces
It's Fashion Revolution week! This is a week to encourage transparency in the fashion industry, where brands show the people and conditions within their supply chain. In the hopes to encourage fair and safe working conditions, gender equality and environmental sustainability throughout the entire process of production.
At YPC this is so important to us, when sourcing new products we put so much research into finding the best suppliers that can provide their services in the most sustainable and ethical ways possible.
You may recognise the Fashion Revolution movement from it's support via social media. Where various brands throughout the years have been posting photos of their production teams holding the sign 'I made your clothes'. This is an extremely important movement for the fashion industry, because we as consumers are starting to be really mindful about where our products are coming from. Whether it's unsafe environments, unethical treatment, gender inequality or environmentally damaging, we should all care about who and where we are buying our products from.
This week is a wonderful opportunity for people to support brands who make the expected effort to source from factories who have ethical values for their employees and care for their effect on the environment.
We spoke with our suppliers to discuss with them what the best thing about their job.....
Here are some photos of the staff we work with from our suppliers. We are so thankful for our product developers to bring our YPC collections to life always ensuring they are of highest quality and made with love.
