Distressed Jeans by Distressed Workers
Guangdong province is the home to the largest denim manufacturers in China, and produce roughly half of the world's entire production of the fabric. Garment workers in China often face extremely long working hours, low pay, insecure employment situations and the lack of formal contracts.
Following Turkish government's ban of sandblasting in 2009, major denim brands agreed on a voluntary ban in their factories. However, a recent report* reveals that sandblasting is still used in China along with other dangerous practices that produce distressed look on the fabric. We urge the national ban on sandblasting and the governments should maintain an effective control on occupational health and safety in denim industry to protect the workers' lives!
SHILA BEGUM: A survivors story
Shila Begum had been working in a factory withink Rana Plaza for over two years when she reluctanly entered the building on April 24th last year. Within minutes of sitting behind her sewing machine the electricity went off and the generator kicked in.
"I felt a shock and the floor gave way. People started running in chaos and the ceiling came down. I kept protecting my head, but I got stuck between the rubble. My hand got stuck and I thought I would die. People around died."
Shila lay trapped in the rubble for a full day, like many of those around her she was screaming out for help. Finally at 5pm someone came to rescue them.
"They tried to pull the concrete plates that were on top of us. From boths side of the plates people were pulling me and they managed to get me out. [But] the weight of the concrete had pulled my uterus. At 11pm they removed my uterus completely."
Shila, who had moved to Dhaka with her daughter in search of work after her husband died, is now unable to work due to the pain she suffers in her arm and the traumatic affects of the day.
"I need medical treatment and I have dreams for my child, so I need to earn money. The tuition fees might be low, but all the materials you need to buy, like shoes, books, uniform and the exam money comes on top of this."
