About the clothing industry


The clothing industry today is…

  • Today, many in the cotton and garment industry are lured by fake job prospects. This is modern day labor slavery.
  • Working conditions can be awful. And when workers raise concerns, they are often punished.
  • Many of the chemicals and dyes used in clothing production find their way into our drinking water.
  • These chemicals are toxic and have been linked to several health problems.
  • The industry is a large consumer of toxic insecticides, pesticides, and dyes.
  • Some of these chemicals are so dangerous and toxic, they have been banned in the EU.

But when you buy ethically made clothing…


You help to shine a light on those working in slave-free conditions and make that industry more attractive.


Human & Environmental

You benefit from clothing that is free from poisonous chemicals.


Economic & Social

You help to improve garment workers’ lives. This has a ripple effect on the economy and leads to positive social change.

All items in The Threadbook have been made ethically.

We support brands who value and treat their workers fairly.
