Fashion Revolution Week happens every year in the week surrounding the 24th of April. This date is the anniversary of the 2013 Rana Plaza collapse. Rana Plaza, a building in Bangladesh, housed a number of garment factories, employing around 5,000 people.The people in this building were manufacturing clothing for many of the biggest global fashion brands.Over 1,100 people died in the collapse and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. The victims were mostly young women. Thats when Fashion Revolution started.
Your voice can change everything.
Since Fashion Revolution started, people from all over the world have used their voice and their power to tell brands that things must change. And it’s working. The industry is starting to change. More brands are being open about where their clothes are made. More manufacturers are making their factories safer. More producers are being seen and heard.
But the story is far from over. We are only just getting started. We can’t stop until every garment/factory worker who makes the clothes and accessories we love is seen, heard, paid properly and working in safe conditions. Your voice does make a difference. We need to make this Fashion Revolution Week bigger and bolder than ever before. Ask brands #whomademyclothes? #whomademybag?
At ZIVELI we are very transparent about who makes our bags, and how they are made.
We work with artisan clusters in Manipur, West Bengal, Telangana and Karnataka.
All our products are handcrafted using natural fibres by our artisans. All our artisans are women, who mostly work from the comfort of their homes. At ZIVELI our focus is on women’s empowerment, and we ensure that all our artisans are paid fair wages.
