Convict Branding

Crafty inmates create goods for outside retail

Implications - Those behind bars are being given the opportunity to participate in projects that will earn them a few extra dollars as well as help them develop essential skills for life outside of their prison walls. Institutions from the United States to Europe are introducing programs that have volunteer prisoners making products such as clothing and accessories. With the number of inmates jumping on board, we will surely be seeing more convict-crafted goods in the market in the near future.
