File PDF document Deadly Denim - Summary
by Paul Roeland last modified 24-04-2013 18:56 — filed under: ,

Under the sandblasting process the denim is smoothed, shaped and cleaned by forcing abrasive particles across it at high speeds. The process is fast and cheap and demand for pre-worn denim has led to a massive rise in its use. But this fashion comes at a price: the health and even the lives of sandblasting workers.

Three months after the fire at Tazreen, many families of the 112 dead workers are still waiting for compensation.
