Brands must improve conditions for homeworkers in their supply chains

Brands must improve conditions for homeworkers in their supply chains | Garment industry | Scoop.it

Homeworkers are sub-contracted workers who work from home for a piece-rate, usually at the lower tiers of global supply chains, and invisible to the eyes of consumers and brands. There are approximately 30 million in China and 20 million in India alone, primarily working on embroidery and garment embellishments, but also sports goods, electrical assembly, print finishing and packaging. While homeworking offers opportunities for income to rural communities and women with children at home, it also exposes them to exploitation, with no legal status, job security or reliable payment. The Ethical Trading Initiative's north India homeworker project worked to improve working conditions for artisan homeworkers through health and safety training, record-keeping training and the introduction of artisan health cards. Brands are encouraged to investigate whether there are homeworkers in their supply chains and use similar initiatives, especially by partnering with other brands, retailers and NGOs.

Rethinking Retail and 18 Examples of Change

Rethinking Retail and 18 Examples of Change | Garment industry | Scoop.it

What music comes to mind when you try on your new pair of jeans? Does that “music in your head” somehow change when you try on a different brand?

The next time you try on a piece of jewelry, pay very close attention to the emotional experiences that run through your mind as you touch and feel the jewelry.

Even though clothing and jewelry are inanimate objects, they are closely tied to an emotional response, and brand managers today are working overtime to figure out ways to both cultivate and amplify that emotional connection.

One fascinating example of this is Gomus, a Brazil-based music branding company that embeds RFID tags in clothing. When a customer tries on a piece of clothing in the changing room, music will automatically come on that matches the feel or mood of the clothing.
