Made in India? More than 40% of fashion in the UK has been produced in India and nearly one third of the country's people live below the poverty line. The Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF) at London College of Fashion has launched Shared Talent India, to help designers and buyers source sustainable fabrics in India by connecting them directly with suppliers, Ecouterre reports (via The Centre for Sustainable Fashion).
Shared Talent India is a comprehensive resource for skills; from weaving to embroidery, materials, from cotton to cashmere; and suppliers in India. The images below feature clothing produced in India with the help of Shared Talent India.
