The Rana Plaza tragedy which tragically killed over 1,100 and wounded more than 2,200 garment works in Bangladesh set off alarm bells to consumers across the country. The tragedy took place on April 24, 2013.
"Who made my clothes?" was what everyone began asking...
Fashion Revolution Week was founded as a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry. This year, we decided to join the movement.
No, Beaded Treasures Project does not make clothing - but we make jewelry and sell accessories. So this year, we ask our supporters and community to ask themselves "Who made my jewelry?" Support locally resettle refugee artisans by shopping ethically with us.
Our showroom is open weekly and hours posted online. Or you can shop here online! Do what little you can and DEMAND transparency, accountability, sustainability, and ethical practices from the brands you have purchased from.
