The making of a t-shirt journey continues: weekend watch

After getting accustomed to the idea that there’s nothing ordinary about a t-shirt while exploring a cotton farm in the Mississippi delta, we now move half around the world in following the making of a t-shirt’s extraordinary journey. Going from plant to fabric, the second part of the adventure has you meeting some really cool machines in Indonesia, Colombia, and even Bangladesh.

The third chapter picks up the story in both Bangladesh and Colombia, where this time around we get the chance to meet some of the people who make our clothes, while we take a good glimpse into their lives. What we stumble upon might not make for the prettiest sight, but the far from perfect picture is doing a great job in describing today’s harsh reality.

Watch part II and part III of “Planet Money Makes A T-Shirt ” below, and catch up with the introductory and the first chapter of the journey here.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
