Event Details

In recent years woven bags have become real ‘it bags’. They have come to signify ethical, handmade, and of course ‘natural’ by their very appearance. At the same time, makers are invisible. These bags are often made in less affluent countries where makers are poorly paid. The clothes accompanying the bags have a brand, a designer and status. The bags themselves are often treated as mere window dressing - yet they are made by extremely skilled artisans.

In the same way as the ethical fashion world is starting to ask - who made my clothes? - Nicole Robins asks - who made my bag? In the aftermath of the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh in 2013, the Fashion Revolution movement has campaigned for systemic reform of the fashion industry with a focus on the need for greater transparency in the fashion supply chain. Consumers have more power than they think when it comes to helping artisans and craftspeople to earn a reasonable living from their work.
