The MADE mosaic, by Camilo Rojas, is a collection of old clothing tags woven and sewn into a powerful piece of activist art, warning buyers against losing sight of their products' sources.
Rojas took on this project to help fight factory-made clothing, remarking that "glamorous goods aren't always made in glamorous factories!" With so many factory-related deaths each year from around the world, it's important that people begin to realize that the cost of their products is more than just money.
The tapestry is currently hanging in a gallery in Beijing where it will hopefully cause a lot of people to think about where exactly their clothing comes from, and who exactly makes their outfits. Since these products are created so far away from their eventual homes, it's hard for people to realize the hardships that went into a single garment. With Rojas's MADE mosaic, however, these hardships might become a little more respected and honored.
