On April 24, 2013 over 1045 Textile Workers Factories Making Clothes for Western Brands Were Killed When a Garment Factory Collapsed

 The 2013 Savar building collapse was in the Rana Plaza complex, in Savar, an industrial corner 20 miles northwest of Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.

It was the "world's deadliest industrial accident since the Bhopal disaster in India in 1984. 
While some 2,500 were rescued from the rubble including many who were injured, the total number of those missing remained unknown weeks later.
The eight-story building, owned by Sohel Rana, associated with the ruling Awami League, was constructed on a "pond filled with sand".
It only had planning approval for five floors. 
Owners used "shoddy building embroidery digitizing materials, including substandard rods, bricks and cement, and did not obtaining the necessary clearances."
An engineer raised safety concerns after noticing cracks in the Rana Plaza complex the day before its collapse.
In spite of this factories stayed open to fill overdue orders.
When generators were restarted after a power blackout the building caved in. 
Six garment factories also in Rana Plaza were cleared to re-open on May 9, 2013 after inspectors allegedly issued safety certificates.
Nine people were arrested including four factory owners, the owner of the complex and the engineer who warned of the crack in the building.
Sewing had always been considered women's work, of which was often part-time, casual, most likely in the home and not regarded as important enough to declare.
Within Western Society, textiles are described usually as 'textiles' or 'fiber'.
These two terms most commonly connote ideas identified with domesticity and women's creativity.
This women's creativity is labor-intensive yet devalued as this women's work, where it becomes invisible and described as non-productive.
These examples illustrate the significance of textiles in our daily lives.
The creations of textiles are not only important for their use, but also for the role they play in the fashion industry.
Textile designers have the ability to inspire collections, trends, and styles.
The textile industry, while being a creative art form, is a very business savvy industry.
Textile digitizing designers marry a creative vision of what a finished textile will look like with a deep understanding of the technical aspects of production and the properties of fiber, yarn, and dyes.
