Jeans to die for? Sandblasting?

28 Jun

In case you did not know that Turkey manufactures many designer jeans. Of course there are questionable labor practices, but recently it has come to major health risk to many of it’s workers. Silicosis is contracted among all of the garment workers who participate in Sandblasting of denim for such labels as Armani and Dolce Gabbana. By the way, they refuse to place a ban on it since 2005 46 workers have died of this disease in Turkey and suspected 1000 more cases to occur. This is serious and really questionable on these companies part. Besides, I hate the sandblasted look.
