The Geography of the Garment Industry
Where Am I Wearing is a book that explores the complex web of the global garment industry. Author Kelsey Timmerman set out on a world-wide journey to understand where, and by who his clothes were made. A t-shirt from Honduras, flip-flops from China and jeans from Cambodia led Timmerman to trace the production trail back to the individual people who made his “all-American” clothing. He of course, discovers poor working conditions around the world, but beyond that ends up befriending many of the people who produced his clothes.
