WellMade! FairWear in Textiles
Improving working conditions in clothing supply chain is what the WellMade project is about. It is designed to provide people working in European apparel brands with an understanding of the eight most important labour issues in clothing factories. Highly interactive session will give suggestions for a wide range of employees - from designers to developers to buyers - on how anyone's day-to-day work can be adapted to support better labour conditions. Using sample problems, and highlighting the impact different kinds of decisions have on factory conditions, the session can help you take practical steps to help improve working conditions in your brand's supply chain.
