What do factory managers think about sustainability of fashion industry? What is a Master Planner? What is a merchandiser? Or a textile engineer? What are their jobs? What role do they serve in the fashion supply chain? How do they connect with other levels of the fashion supply chain? And what are their challenges?

We’re so disconnected from the making of the things we use every day. Talking about sustainability requires a better understanding of how fashion is mass produced.

In sustainable fashion spaces, we often hear about brands and about workers. But there’s so much in between. Through this podcast, we want to bring these layers to life to bring you diverse and underrepresented voices from the fashion supply chain.

We’ve been lucky to have front row seats to the fashion supply chain, and we want to bring that to you – whether you’re a fashion lover, a consumer, a sustainable fashion advocate, or an industry insider looking for frank and open conversations with your counterparts in a different part of the world. Join us in our quest to illuminate the fashion supply chain and change the industry we love for the better.
