We will follow a route throughout Southeast Asia according to the entrepreneurs identified in some areas. To date we have planned to visit Thailand, India, Cambodia, Vietnam, the Philippines and China … regions where initiatives related to ethical fashion are abundant! However, our itinerary is subject to change: new countries will be added to the list if we find new proponents to meet.
We chose Asia because this continent accounts for 80% of the world’s exports of textiles and clothing. The fashion industry has a very strong environmental impact: 70% of watercourses in China are polluted by chemicals used in dyeing, while the recycling of certain textiles remains difficult (nylon takes 40 years to decompose).
If you know anyone or have information that can help us in this regions (such as contacts, ethical fashion entrepreneurs, events, good plans for travelers, housing, organizations and associations … we would love to hear from you! We are always looking to expand our contact database, improve our travel, develop new opportunities, and meet new people for knowledge exchange. Please feel free to reach out to us on our Contact Page. Thank you!
