LEEDS - Homeworkers have some of the worst conditions in global textile and apparel supply chains yet remain invisible to many of the brands whose products they help to produce, according to a new report.

The Homeworkers Worldwide (HWW) non-profit published the study which estimates that five million homeworkers work in textile and apparel supply chains in India alone, with 3.5 million of them in the value chains of global brands.

The report is part of the Hidden Homeworkers initiative, a four-year programme led by the Traidcraft Exchange charity, alongside HWW, Indian workers' rights NGO Cividep and the HomeNet South Asia network, which is co-funded by the European Union.
