A Moving Story of People and Pants in the Borderless World of Global Trade
“A fascinating chronicle of the $55-billion-a-year global denim industry.” —David Futrelle, Los Angeles Times
Rachel Louise Snyder reports from the far reaches of the multi-billion-dollar denim industry in search of the people who make your clothes. From a cotton picker in Azerbaijan to a Cambodian seamstress, a denim maker in Italy to a fashion designer in New York, Snyder captures the human, environmental, and political forces at work in a complex and often absurd world. Neither polemic nor prescription, Fugitive Denim captures what it means to work in the twenty-first century.
