Garments sold in the stores of global companies such as H&M and Zara/Inditex make a long journey before they end up on display. Workers may have produced cotton fibres in Kenya; other workers may have spun, woven and sewn the garments in factories in Sri Lanka, China, or Bangladesh; until they come to be sold by retail workers in Europe.
The ExChains Network unites workers from countries such as Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Germany with the objective of mutually supporting each other along the subcontracting chain of the textile, garment and retail sector. By meeting each other and discovering each other’s working situations, organising efforts and demands, we establish concrete solidarity links.
