Unless brands and retailers reconsider how they source and produce fast fashion, they’ll continue to cripple the most vulnerable workers in the supply chain, writes Chris Remington, upon the release of a new report.

The story of how Turkey has grown to become the third largest clothing supplier to Europe over recent years is one now fraught with workers’ rights violations. Not brought upon by disingenuous factory bosses, the country’s industry infrastructure has instead been ravaged by fashion firms – and a seemingly uncompromising approach to sourcing.

After four years of consistently casting its eye over the Syrian workforce in this industry, findings from the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre’s latest probe – The Price You Pay: How Purchasing Practices Harm Turkey’s Garment Workers – give little reason to believe the 37 leading apparel brands first surveyed back in 2016 are committed to making the progress required to provide a better life for these workers.
