True Cost Screening & Clothing Swap

  • Words Bookstore Cafe (map)

Join us for the first Fashion Revolution event in Bahrain! 

Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry.

The Bahrain chapter of Fashion Revolution aims to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased, so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.

'We believe in an industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. Our mission is to bring everyone together to make that happen.'

Fashion Revolution Week's #whomademyclothes campaign coincides with the anniversary of the horrific Rana Plaza factory collapse in which 1,138 people were killed and many more injured on 24th April 2013.

'We use this week to encourage millions of people to ask brands ‘Who made my clothes’ and demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain.

Come with an open mind, a piece of clothing you are willing to swap, and the “story” behind that piece of clothing written down on a small piece of paper. 

The story can be as simple as a favorite memory in that item, who bought you the item, how you came across it, etc. The idea is that the garment has value and should be cared for as such by its next owner.

We look forward to seeing you, hearing the story behind your garment, and having a short discussion on the True Cost and Fashion Revolution after the screening.'

Get ready to think about #WhoMadeMyClothes.
