If you saw our post about The True Cost documentary, then you probably recognize Safia Minney. She’s the founder and director of People Tree, a sustainable slow fashion brand.

Safia is also the author Naked Fashion and Slow Fashion, books about the sustainable fashion movement.

Her latest book project Slave to Fashion is on Kickstarter and needs as much support as possible to meet the funding requirements.

Safia and her team will research and produce micro documentaries and interviews featuring stories of men, women and children caught in slavery, making the clothes sold on the high street, in Europe and the developing world. They will also write the ‘Slave To Fashion’ book profiling best ethical practice of brands and designers within the fashion industry. The book will prove that fashion can be used to empower workers – whilst creating beautiful, competitive and accessible fashion. Following the publishing of the book, Safia and her team will organise ‘Slave To Fashion’ education outreach events at schools to maximise the social impact of the campaign.

Instead of spending money on something made in a sweatshop, consider backing the Slave to Fashion book and campaign to help spread awareness about modern day sweatshop slavery.

  1. I wish I could afford to go for the one with a Fairtrade necklace designed by the creator, but I had to go for a less expensive pledge. But pledged none the less.
