#whomademyclothes is a patchwork blanket with 1,138 used clothes labels sewn on. The number of labels is representative of the number of people who died in the Rana Plaza complex, Bangladesh in 2013. Most of these people were garment workers. An organisation called 'Fashion Revolution' are campaigning for greater transparency in the fashion industry. I contacted them in regard to this work and they agreed I could use their hashtag #whomademyclothes as a title. They also showcased the piece on their social media site
