We are proud that in BD there is still a good demand of Textile and fashion design institution.
but at the same time we should be very carefully about the sustainability of this teaching in our country.

We have to know the expectations of quality from the textile industry they give job facilities to graduates........

Tazreen Fashions Limited (hereafter Tazreen Fashions) is a garment manufacturer
located in Ashulia, Dhaka in Bangladesh. Tazreen Fashions was incorporated in
March, 2009.

The factory opened its doors in May 2010.

At the time of the factory fire, Tazreen Fashions produced T -shirts, fleece vests and polo shirts that
were exported to various European countries, as well as to the US. The company
reported an annual turnover of approximately US$36 million.


A horrific fire broke out at the Tazreen Fashions factory on 24 November 2012, killing
at least 112 factory workers. The fire broke out at around 6.30pm, a time when most
workers had already left the premises, according to a garment industry official.

Around 600 workers were present when the fire started, he added. According to
Director Mohammed Shahjahan, 1,137 workers were present on the day of the

The legal minimum wage does no equal a living wage. Wages are extremely low;
Bangladesh garment workers are the lowest paid in the world.

Government bodies in
charge of building and fire safety, such as the inspectorate of Factories and
Establishments fail to carry out their tasks adequately. While the Bangladeshi
garment industry has been growing at a rapid pace, the labour inspectorate is
dramatically understaffed. According to the Bangladesh Occupational Safety, Health
and Environment Foundation, in 2008 there were only 80 inspectors in the entire
country—including 20 inspectors for occupational health and safety— for 24,299
factories, three million shops and establishments, and two major ports.
According to
a 2011 International Labour Organization (ILO) report, the number of labour
inspectors had increased to 93 in 2010. However, the number of new workplaces has
also dramatically increased during this period. In addition, the ILO noted that the
number of inspectors devoted to occupational safety and health has remained the
same over the last 26 years

The garment industry has become the backbone of the Bangladesh economy. It
accounts for 78 per cent of total exports and contributes 17 per cent of the country’s
gross domestic product. Some 59 per cent of Bangladesh exports are destined for the
European market, while 26 per cent is exported to the United States.

Attracting a
growing number of foreign buyers over the last years, Bangladesh has become the
second largest export of apparel, after China.

Bangladesh’s garment industry is characterised by fast production relying on cheap
labour and low production costs. Over three million workers, the majority of whom are
young women, are employed in the Bangladesh garment industry and remain the
lowest paid garment workers in the world. Many workplaces fail to adhere to the most
basic standards of health and safety

Why Is sustainable Development Important?
More and more people believe that if we continue in our current methodology when it comes to development that we who live on the earth will need at least two more planets to supply the resources we'll need to sustain life. First of all, we don't have two other planets to draw from. The crux of the problem lies in the fact that 80 percent of the world's resources are used by 20 percent of the people. For example, just one individual living in North America uses as much energy as more than 200 West or East Africans!
Aside from that, there are the ecological issues to consider, too. Humans are developing the world so fast that we lose up to 137 species daily in just the tropical rain forests. It's mind boggling to think of what the effects of this development means to our future across the board.
This just gives us a glimpse at the importance of sustainable development.

sustainable development objectives include three interdependent components:
•   Social issues
•   Economic issues
•   Environmental issues

Aarong engages some 37,000 rural artisans and handicrafts producers to produce its fabrics, according to a statement by the leading fashion house. Last year, Aarong’s consumption stood at about three million yards of hand-woven fabric.
Aarong’s sales in 2012 stood at about Tk 339.5 crore, says Q Pushpita Alam, programme manager (communications). Currently, the fashion house employs 2,113 regular people, she added.

Local clothing brands, like Cat’s Eye, Westecs, and Artisti, produce goods with imported fabrics.

But brands like Kay Kraft, Aarong and Banglar Mela are different, as they completely depend on local fabrics.
