Kelsey Timmerman, author of "Where am I Wearing?" A Global Tour to the Countries, Factories, and People that Make Our Clothes. Information can be found at: http://www.whereamiwearing.com. Ninety-seven percent of our clothes are made overseas. Yet globalization makes it difficult to know much about the origin of the products we buy. So journalist and blogger Kelsey Timmerman decided to visit each of the countries and factories where his five favorite items of clothing were made and meet the workers. In Bangladesh, he went undercover as an underwear buyer. In Cambodia, he learned the difference between those who wear Levi’s and those who make them. In China, he saw the costs of globalization and the dark side of the Chinese economic miracle. Where Am I Wearing? is an indispensable and unforgettable journey that bridges the gap between impersonal economic forces and the people most directly affected by them.Learn more about Skyping with an Author online.
