Fault Lines traces Bangladesh’s garment supply chain and asks if US retailers know where their clothes are being made.

Following two deadly factory disasters, Fault Lines traces Bangladesh’s garment supply chain to investigate whether U.S. retailers, like Walmart, know where their clothes are being made.

In November 2012, a fire at the Tazreen Fashions factory in Bangladesh killed at least 112 people. Walmart’s Faded Glory brand shorts were among the clothing found in the charred remains. Walmart blamed its supplier, saying the order had been subcontracted to Tazreen without its authorization.

Using internal documents, Fault Lines investigates whether Walmart has lost control of its supply chain in Bangladesh and uncovers what some call an “open secret”—that corporations deliberately turn a blind eye to the practice of subcontracting, with damaging results.
