Today our fashion comes from all over the world. Cotton is turned to fabric in Pakistan, cut and sewn in China, with buttons and zippers from Germany, and shipped to the US as a cheap, well-fitted blouse that you wear for one season and then throw away.
We are disconnected from the humans who touch our stuff along the way, spend long days laboring over it, have good days and bad.
We can use our collective voice and shopping dollars to improve the well-being of the people behind our stuff. If we ask the right questions, brands and manufacturers will set aside the time and money to improve the lives of the people who make our stuff.
Today they don’t do much because they think you don’t care. We don’t believe that for a second. What has been missing is the human connection between you and the makers and the inspiration to make a difference.
Our mission at Remake is simple: We want to build a conscious consumer movement. When we know the stories, we can use our collective voice and shopping dollars to improve and shape the lives of people who make our clothes.
