Luxury fashion's hidden Indian embroiderers
Luxury brands like Dior and Saint Laurent have quietly outsourced much of their embroidery work to India for years. Just like fast-fashion retailers, the majority of luxury brands do not own their own production facilities and work with independent factories to produce their garments, but they've become aware of the dangers within that system, such as underpaid workers and dangerous working conditions. The Utthan pact was introduced in 2016 by a group of luxury houses, including KeringLVMH and Burberry, aiming to uphold safety conditions in Mumbai factories. However, during visits to Mumbai factories and numerous interviews with artisans, factory managers and designers, it was discovered that embroiderers still had to work in factories that did not meet Indian safety laws, The New York Times reports. {The New York Times}
