What a great idea! I always liked finding slips of paper with makers' names on them: loved the feeling someone I know knew by name had made my clothes...or shoes, as in one case.

The yarn I'm using to darn the blanket came with a tag signed by the Uruguayan woman who'd made it--I love that!

I saw this on FB. Love it...makes it real. I'm glad a worked a couple weeks in a suit factory (back when clothes were made in America). It really gave me a feel for what goes into sewing clothes on a massive scale. And the fiber dust everywhere...that can't be good for anyone's lungs. We definitely should honor and appreciate our clothes makers more.
