Sub titel: The Hidden World of Fast Fashion and Second-hand Clothes
Have you have ever stopped and wondered where your jeans came from, who made them, and where? Or ever wondered where they end up after you donate them for recycling? Following a pair of jeans 'Clothing Poverty' takes the reader on a vivid global journey to reveal how clothes are manufactured and retailed, revealing how fast-fashion and clothing recycling are interconnected. Andrew Brooks shows how recycled clothes are traded across continents and uncovers how fast-fashion retailers and international charities are embroiled in commodity chains which perpetuate poverty. Stitching together rich narratives from Mozambican markets, Nigerian smugglers, Bolivian female traders, to London’s vintage clothing scene and Vivienne Westwood’s ethical fashion lines, 'Clothing Poverty' uncovers the many hidden sides of seemingly mundane items.
