Every Object is Political, by Abigail Garbett, is the story of a pair of Primark cargo trousers made in Bangladesh.
Abigail describes herself as, “A maker and a fixer. I am a social and environmental activist and a lover of the natural world. I am ‘DIY till I die’.”
“At first it might seem that there is nothing significant about this pair of trousers. They are mass-manufactured, cheap and common place. They are made of machine stitched cotton twill with plastic buttons and steel zip. They were manufactured by New Wave Bottoms in Dhaka, Bangladesh and were sold in Primark stores across the UK in 2013/14.”
