A small factory where workers are paid very little and work many hours in very bad conditions:
Clothes that are made and sold cheaply, so that people can buy new clothes often:
Instead of having two seasons, fast fashion gives us new variations on T-shirts and jeans every week.
The underwear we sell is about luxury, not fast fashion.

When people in the West throw their clothes away, their cast-offs often go on a journey east, across the oceans, to India’s industrial interior. From the Kutch District of western India to the northern city of Panipat, garment recyclers turn into yarn the huge bales of clothes that come from people and places distinctly strange. With little exposure to Western culture other than the Discovery Channel, the garment recyclers rely on their imagination and the rumours that travel with the cast-offs to create an an intriguing perspective on the West.
