A quilt made in China

Written in


Made in China/Fait en Chine 2005

Someone has posted a beautiful and thoughtful quilt image on Flickr;

“This is a quilt that I made entirely of labels, except for the binding. It is one of a series of quilts on endangered species. The Giant Panda is the world’s most endangered large mammal. Many of the labels say “Made in China/Fait en Chine”, which is also where the panda lives. Is it our demand for cheap clothing that is contributing to the loss of wildlife habitat?

Thanks to all who donated labels, especially to those who were wearing the clothes at the time that I took the labels off. ”
