Why Transparency Matters

Today, overseas manufacturing operations make up 98% of the clothing we purchase here in the United States. In this situation, it’s difficult to learn anything about where our clothes come from, and difficult to exercise our buying power to influence the market.

We believe in our customers. You should know all the steps in our supply chain, from the farmers who grow the cotton to the folks who sew the cloth together, and you should have a way to contact all of the folks who are making your clothes.

This may sound basic, but most clothing brands keep their supply chains secret. They may not even know who some of the companies in their supply chain are, especially during the early stages of farming the cotton and spinning the yarn. It’s time to demand apparel brands be transparent with who manufactures their clothes and where.
