Days Japan


In its November 2016 issue, the Japanese magazine Days Japan presented the reportage Cotton Black, Cotton Blue by Slovenian photographer Jošt Franko. Franko casts a critical eye behind the scenes of the textile industry, revealing the clothing industry system by following the journey of the cotton, from plantations in Burkina Faso and the USA, to production centres in Bangladesh and Romania, and on to the warehouses and sales points in Great Britain and Slovenia.
