Fashion Revolution Week is an annual campaign bringing together the world’s largest fashion activism movement for seven days of action.

This year marks 10 years since the Rana Plaza tragedy, a preventable disaster that resulted in 1,138 lives being lost. So, all week, we remember the workers and the families affected and stand in solidarity with the organisations working on the ground to hold the fashion industry accountable.

Over the past ten years, the noise around sustainable fashion has only got louder. But meanwhile, real progress is too slow in the context of the climate crisis and rising social injustice. Here at Miss Pom Pom, we love fashion. But we don’t want our clothes to exploit people or destroy our planet. That is why we wholly support this year’s campaign theme: MANIFESTO FOR A FASHION REVOLUTION.

Which is why we’re asking our awesome MISS POM POM community to be curious. Go out and ask the brand’s you love more about their methods of production. From supply chain transparency to living wages, textile waste to cultural appropriation, freedom of association to biodiversity, we all need to do more in expanding the horizons of what the fashion industry could (and should) be doing.

As a fashion brand ourselves, we strive to know #whomadeourclothes and think a lot about the use of sustainable fabrics and environmentally friendly production methods.  This includes small production runs, the sourcing of GOTS certified organic cotton and the use of AZO-free dyes for the hand block prints that form a signature part of our summer collections. Whilst, our winter knitwear is made from vegan yarns in a small family-run factory in Istanbul, Turkey and is shipped by truck (so fewer carbon emissions than air freight) to the UK.

However, if you ever have any further questions or want to know more about how Miss Pom Pom garments are made, please feel free to contact us. We love talking about the very talented people who we entrust to bring our designs and patterns to life after they leave our South London studio.
