Clothes have never been more disposable, with the throwaway fashion phenomenon taking the High Street by storm and bargain-hunting becoming a national obsession.


For the first time, six young fashion lovers swap shopping for the factories and backstreet workshops of India to make clothes for the British High Street. In this new, four-part series, they get a unique experience of how their clothes are really made.


An accompanying online fashion magazine – Thread ( – offers tips on how to achieve an eco-glam look through a mix of shopping for new or vintage clothes, to swapping clothes with friends and customising existing clothes.


The six start at the top, working for Shahi Enterprises in New Delhi, a multi-million pound factory that makes clothes for some of the biggest names on the UK High Street. They learn to sew before joining the production lines where every worker has targets to meet: for example, collars have to be sewn on to shirts at the rate of one a minute.


Supervisors patrol the lines and, at lunch, the sexes are made to sit apart. Seven hours into the first working day and the pressure becomes too much for Amrita, who runs out in tears. But one of their hosts, factory worker Lalita, tells them the work force is not impressed by their lack of discipline and respect for the job.


As unskilled workers they're paid around £1.50 a day, in line with the Indian minimum wage. The group finds that it doesn't stretch far – when they go to buy deodorant, it costs a day's wages.


Having finished their job at Shahi, the group moves on to a smaller, backstreet workshop that also makes clothes for the UK. Here, they work up to 18 hours a day, are paid by the garment, and literally eat and even sleep beside their machines.
