Fast fashion brand transparency is incredibly important and very hard to come by. Fashion Revolution’s Transparency Index contains 100 brands that are reporting some of their manufacturing facilities unfortunately only 32 are publishing a list of their factories at the first tier, (where clothes are typically cut, sewn and trimmed) and a mere 14 are publishing their processing facilities (i.e. where clothes undergo dyeing, printing, finishing, laundering and other processing).
The increase in brand transparency from 2016 to 2017 is encouraging but there’s still loads of improvement to be done before fast fashion brands can be called transparent, ethical and sustainable. Find out how you can help below:
