Where were your clothes made? (Map)

Marketplace Contributor May 30, 2013

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.
