The Syrian conflict may seem distant tfashion companies and consumers, but the war is having a direct impact on the garment sector through its supply chain. A growing number of Syrian children, hired in violation of International Labour Organisation (ILO) conventions that prohibit child labour, are used as cheap manpower in Turkish textile factories. Brands that only account for a small percentage of a factory’s production have limited leverage tdemand changes, which is why FWF encourages cooperation between members sourcing from the same suppliers tboost their influence. “If you’re lucky enough tfind other FWF members working with the same manufacturer, this is the best case scenario,” says Sven König. “You can combine corrective efforts and have more leverage, more impact.” Vaude won the 2015 FWF Best Practice award for a joint training project conducted in cooperation with twother companies, Jack Wolfskin and Salewa. Fair Wear Foundation is in favour of working together with other multi stakeholder initiatives like FLA and ETI. Creating an environment in which garment companies can be more honest about the darker sides of the industry and engage constructively with their suppliers would be an important step towards preventing child labour. “We want brands tbe frank and open about it,” says Margreet Vrieling of FWF. “Brands and suppliers must give each other room tdbusiness in a respectful way.”
