From the case study, identify one way that Who Made Your Pants is ethical
in its production
Who Made Your Pants? is an ethical business that was
launched in 2008 by Becky John because she really didn’t
like wearing clothes that were made in sweatshop
conditions. The company makes underwear using
traditional fabrics, like lycra and lace, which are bought
from big underwear companies. These fabrics are
unwanted materials which are normally thrown out as
waste at the end of a season.
In 2014, Becky won Social Entrepreneur of the Year for
her business that creates manufacturing jobs for women
who have been excluded due to their status as refugees.
She employs 8 women with refugee backgrounds from
countries such as Sudan, Somalia and Afghanistan.
The company provides training and every new recruit
starts by working on one style of underwear and then
moves onto the more complicated styles. The pants are handmade and each woman
has a specialist job like cutting, sewing or trimming so there will always be more than
one person involved in the making of each piece of underwear. All profits the company
makes go back into the business.
