The Clean Clothes Campaign started in February to make all fashion designers, manufacturers and retailers to stop using sandblasting techiques. Sandblasting is a method to produce denim garments with an artificially worn look. The ban was implemented in Turkey in 2009 after evidence revealved that 46 former sandblasting workers had contracted silicosis. The disease is due to sandblasting ommiting large amounts of silica dust which can lead to silicosis, a very dangerous disease. A number of well know retailers and manufacturers have elminated the proccess from their collections which include H&M, Levis, C&A, Gucci and Versace.
The campaign has started to work harder on changing the views of designers Roberto Cavalli, Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana who have decided to not go ahead with the ban. Dolce and Gabbana have been especially singled out as when asked about the ban have said it does not interest them. The Clean clothes campaign will carry on with promoting the ban to the Italian fashion houses who refuse to stop sandblasting.
