Fashion Revolution Day is also a time to celebrate companies that are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion. People Tree has been campaigning for over 20 years to demonstrate that an alternative to fast fashion is possible.

For Fashion Revolution Day 2015, People Tree has put together a pack of images and profiles of producers for you to meet the talented makers of our clothes and to hear their stories.
