XINJIANG - Fashion brands Cotton On and Target Australia have stopped sourcing cotton from China's Xinjiang province over concerns about mass human rights abuses there - including forced labour by prisoners.

Cotton On has now completed an internal investigation into its supply chain after the Australian news outlet Four Corners revealed in July that Uyghur Muslims were being rounded up as part of a detention program and forced to work, some in shackles, in textile factories in Xinjiang.

Four Corners also revealed that Target Australia was already conducting an internal review into where it sourced its cotton from in Xinjiang.
