Stories of change

We believe that a different fashion industry is possible; one has the power and ability to work better for the millions of men and women who make our clothes. We believe this because we see evidence of change happening every day.

From a farmer whose livelihood and health has improved through organic cotton, to the young girl who turns her life around when she’s given support to get out of forced labour and back into school.  Read all our stories of change and get inspired!
