Understanding Fair Labor in Fashion

When we look at a price tag on a piece of clothing, one of the most difficult things is trying to make sense of it.

Why do things cost what they do? Why is a cotton shirt $10 in on store and $75 in another? If you're looking to support companies who invest in fairly compensated workers, the task of sifting through PR, whitewashing and label-reading while trying to get a grasp on supply chains and costs of living is daunting at best, and most people simply throw their hands up. Luckily, The Fair Wear Foundation has launched a new portal aimed at clarifying this crucial information.
