Workers struggle to understand the reason for why people would throw away their clothes.
On our minds is Unravel, a 14-minute film that unveils how Western consumption patterns are regarded in developing countries. Following women in a garment recycling plant in rural India, the documentary-style clip shows how large amounts of discarded clothing is hand-stripped of any labels, buttons and zips and spun back to thread, and hears the workers reflect around the lives of the clothes’ previous owners. “Western women are so respected, God gave them a good life”, says one worker, whereas others struggle to understand the reason for why people would throw away their clothes. Whether water is just as expensive as clothes in the West; or Westerners just don’t like washing their clothes – and though no grudge is held, their reality is abstract and ways of consuming even more so. Watch the documentary here.
