Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts

The Factory Floor

Six young fashion lovers swap shopping for the factories and backstreet workshops of India to learn how the clothes they wear are manufactured. They start at the top, working for Shahi Enterprises in New Delhi, a multi-million pound factory that makes clothes for some of the biggest U.K. high street names. They learn to sew before joining the production lines where every worker has targets to meet. Supervisors patrol the lines and, at lunch, the sexes are made to sit apart. As unskilled workers they're paid around one pound fifty a day, a basic living wage in India.
