“Not only does sewing guarantee that one’s clothing is ethically made (you made it yourself!), it offers the thrilling autonomy to manifest the clothing one envisions and execute it according to one’s exact specifications. Considering the abysmal fabric quality and lifespan of mass market clothing, learning how to sew can be viewed as less of a niche hobby and more of a necessary form of resistance.”
As someone who's learned to sew her own cloths over the last year, I found this article interesting, but the above quote is both true and also not totally true. I have no illusions that the fabric I buy is perfectly made and doesn't have any issues with labor and such. As a podcaster once said (I'm sorry I forget who it was), there is no ethical consumption, the supply chains are way too long and complex to know where absolutely every piece of every item you buy was made and how it was made and if it was made using good or bad labor practices.
