About

METIS WORLD FACTORY 

Made in China.  Sold in Britain. Worn by you. 

From the factory floor to the catwalk, from Shanghai to London, World Factory weaves together stories of people connected by the global textile industry. 

Riffing on our awareness of mass production and vulture capitalism, METIS invite you to play a provocative game. Which card will you draw? Will you be an ethical factory owner or will profits always come first? In the rag trade, can anyone ever really win?

Featuring stunning video and a powerful score, the show gives audiences a first-hand experience of the sharp end of fast fashion. 

This show was researched by having a shirt manufactured in a Chinese factory. Click here for more information.


THE POLITICS BEHIND WORLD FACTORY:
