Follow my outfit
To be able to keep track of what I found out about each item I made a little overview page. You can check it out here.
I started doing some research to all the different items and gathered all the contact information I could find. Sadly enough I couldn't find phone numbers from each company, I prefer to call, since people tend to avoid emails with not very easy questions :-) So I emailed the ones I could, hoping for a response soon. Tomorrow is my phone day, let's do some friendly talking!
I did notice already that Veja and American Apparel are very open about how and where they produce their products. Veja even has a page with what they call 'Limitations' where they admit the things they don't succeed in. American Apparel has a page where you can view the factory with video's of their employees. I checked out the 5th floor - Sewing, cute!
Erfolg (which means success in english) also seems clear where and how they produce (as much as they can in Switzerland) but it's all in German, so I'm sometimes confused :-)
If you have any tips about my outfit, bring it on!! (do you like the color combination?) but seriously, tips... :-)
