My investigation continues... after bit of persistence have given me more detail about where my dress was made (my first email back was a blanket one in which said they couldn't give any details of their manufacturers to customers). I persisted and asked specific questions about the origin of the cotton and the work conditions of the people and got this:
"1. The supplier who created this dress has worked with Toast for over 17 years (almost from the beginning) and we have a very strong working relationship with them. We ensure we visit our suppliers seasonally to continue to build our relationships and check their current working standards.
2. This supplier works with local mills and weavers in the South of India. Currently not all of our cotton is organic but this is something we are working towards and we are currently investigating a more vertical process for the sourcing of our cotton fabric". It's a good start but I'm still after some answers... particularly about the working conditions of the people in the factories. The quest continues...
