Where were your clothes made? (Map)

A clothing tag is seen inside a gutted garment factory in Dhaka on May 9, 2013. A fire at a garment factory killed at least eight people May 9 in the latest disaster to hit Bangladesh's textile industry, still reeling from the deaths of more than 900 people in a building collapse.

What country was was your outfit made in?

That's the question we asked the other day to our Twitter followers. Take a peek at the tag on something you're wearing and tell us what you see.

It's a simple question with a lot of meaning. Given the tragedies in Bangladesh, some think consumers, and manufacturers, should be more aware of where their clothes are made.

We got a lot of responses, with clothes made everywhere in the world. So many, we decided to take a wide look at it. Check out our map of your tweets and don't forget to tell your friends to tweet where their clothes were #madein.
