To be honest, I don't really think about who made my clothes. I'm more interested in buying second-hand clothes because I care about the environment.
I suppose they should but I believe that only persistent questions can change something. Companies can easily lie and get away with it, but if they are met with perseverance, they'll have to provide answers.

To be honest I don't really think about clothes or their makers or their brands at all. To me clothes are tools of money, however they can cause joy to some people as well as myself to a certain extent. I believe people buy clothes so that they can feel good about themselves, pretend to be someone they are not or simply need something to cover their bodies with. Fashion, trends and brands are all potential sources of snobbery and descent, which leads to people disliking one another. I can tell from personal experience that people can be quite sinister once they realize that you possess a far cheaper shoe than they do, and immediately start poking you with rude declarations. Of course clothes can also be roots of joyfulness, I admit that i like to wear something nice as well, such as a nice black leather dress shoe or a fine cotton shirt that is exactly my size. Wearing clothes can feel great and even I can appreciate a good outfit, and yes we should know about how, when, where and most importantly by whom they are made, but we won't. Multi-national companies with their brands will always find a way to get away with not too ethical workforce employment. As I have said, fashion is a tool of money, money causes greed and greed causes people to forget their ethics.

As far as I´m concerned, i think brands should tell the buyers from where their materials are acquired and if they are made under standard situations. So I´m for this movement and i agreed with everything they said

I definitley think about who made my clothes, most of the the time, sometimes i don't but thats just occasionally when the object in question is really really pretty, but anyways, I normally don't buy fast fashion, I'm not exactly the type of person who values quality over everything else I still want to be fashionable, but I know big industries like Inditex have really bad working standards so i avoid buying from them. Shops like Primark or Kiabi have very low prices and those come from the exceedingley low wages workers in some third world country charge, i try to keep that in mind when shopping.
I honestly think that, if people wanted to know where their clothes come from they would've asked long ago, but you don't really "ingest" your clothes you just wear them until you get something new so who cares where they come from, right?

I'm agree with Susie when she says that she thinks it's important to think about where our clothes and that who ever makes them works in good conditions.

I think that is important to know where your clothes come from because there are clothes' brands that has children working for them in countries like India or Indonesia.

Great video, loved it. Ive never thought about where my clothes came from. I feel like I'm going to start asking about the origins of my clothes from now on. I will also take better care of may used clothes, and wont throw them to the trash if I get tired of them. Over all, very well made vid, eye opening and fun to watch.
