A journalist travels the world to trace the origins of our clothes
When journalist and traveler Kelsey Timmerman wanted to know
where his clothes came from and who made them, he began a journey
that would take him from Honduras to Bangladesh to Cambodia to
China and back again. "Where Am I Wearing?" intimately describes

living and the all-American material lifestyle. By introducing
readers to the human element of globalization--the factory workers,
their names, their families, and their way of life--"Where Am I
Wearing" bridges the gap between global producers and consumers.
New content includes: a visit to a fair trade Ethiopian shoe
factory that is changing lives one job at time; updates on how
workers worldwide have been squeezed by rising food costs and
declining orders in the wake of the global financial crisis; and
the author's search for the garment worker in Honduras who inspired

Wearing?" puts a human face on globalization.
