      Fashion Revolution Week: #whomademyclothes?

      Fashion Revolution Week: #whomademyclothes?

      Fashion Revolution is a not-for-profit global initiative with a mission to raise awareness of the true cost of fashion. It aims to demonstrate that meaningful change really is possible and to celebrate those who are creating a more sustainable future.

      It’s no surprise that here at Miik we’re huge supporters of Fashion Revolution. We stand behind the idea that fashion should be an industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profits in equal measure. We proudly manufacture all of our garments right here in Ontario at facilities that abide by safe and fair workplace standards.

      Sadly, in 2013 over a thousand people were killed and thousands more were injured when a garment factory collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. This was the impetus behind Fashion Revolution and it’s a grim reminder of what can happen when we don’t value people as much as we value profits. Watch Miik co-founder Michael Gaughan's interview with CTV News following the factory collapse in 2013.


      This week in particular, Fashion Revolution is encouraging people to ask Who Made My Clothes? With this simple question hopefully people will begin to think differently about what they wear and where their clothes come from. It’s something we think about every day and something that we’re confident in offering to our customers. At Miik, there’s no hiding where our clothes come from and we’re always happy to share the story behind who makes our clothes. 

      Join us in spreading awareness of Fashion Revolution by proudly sharing a photo and showing your Miik label (#showyourlabel).
