FLAWED FABRICS: A report about the abuse of girls and women workers in the South Indian textile industry
A new report alleging “modern-day slavery” in five Indian textile mills prompted at least three of the Western retailers — X, Y, and Z — linked to the factories on Tuesday to pledge to take either punitive or remedial action.
X, Y, and Z represent real corporations whose names we removed as a courtesy.
The report, “Flawed Fabrics,” was released by the Center for Research on Multinational Corporations and the India Committee of the Netherlands, two human and labor rights nongovernmental organizations based in the Netherlands, detailing alleged egregious abuses found at Indian textile spinning mills in Tamil Nadu, considered a major hub in the global textile and knitwear industry.
