Where am I wearing? By  Kelsey Timmerman - The Peay Read

Where Am I Wearing? A Global Tour to the Countries, Factories, and People that Make Our Clothes

When journalist and traveler Kelsey Timmerman wanted to know where his clothes came from and who made them, he began a journey that would take him from Honduras to Bangladesh to Cambodia to China and back again. Where Am I Wearing? intimately describes the connection between impoverished garment workers' standards of living and the all-American material lifestyle. By introducing readers to the human element of globalization—the factory workers, their names, their families, and their way of life—Where Am I Wearing bridges the gap between global producers and consumers.

Excerpt from Where am I Wearing?

When I walk into my closet, I think about the hundreds - if not thousands - of people around the world who had a hand in making my clothes. Jeans are no longer just jeans, shirts no longer just shirts, shoes no longer just shoes, clothes are no longer just clothes. Each is an untold story.
