Ginger Threads Collections has made it our mission to be more conscientious about where our clothes and accessories are made, and to know who’s making them. Are they paid a fair wage? Are the materials used harmful for the environment? Sometimes this isn’t easy to find out, especially because the fashion industry hasn’t historically been the most transparent. And honestly, consumers haven’t really cared much in the past either, right?
