Ever wondered where your clothes are really from?

Well, I did. When getting changed the other night and flinging my clothes down on the floor in the usual fashion (I really don't know why I do that since I then have to bend down and pick them up afterwards) I noticed the label which said 'Made in Turkey'. "What?" I said, "my H&M vest top which I picked up locally?". This made me intrigued so I raided my multicultural wardrobe and discovered that my clothes have had more air miles than me! Where are your clothes made? Have a look on the labels and comment!

Haha, I noticed that a long time ago, well, my clothes are made in: Turkey, India, Hong Kong, Spain, Pakistan, China and even in Romania.. I don't know if it's a good thing it's all from so far away.

great post!
I remember I was living in Peru, and there was a certain pair of Calvin Klein jeans I absolutely LOVED and saw online, and convinced my friend who was travelling to the states to look all over for it and buy it for me
and when she got back guess what the label said?
MADE IN PERU!
