Khloe Kardashian Shoots Down Sweat Shop Speculation

Rivet's 2020 Denim Circularity report takes a deep dive into how the global denim industry is plotting its circular future amidst a worldwide pandemic.

Khloe Kardashian’s recently launched denim brand Good American may be a big success so far, but the reality TV star turned denim maven is now defending her company against allegations on social media that it uses sweat shops to produce its clothing.

On Tuesday, Kardashian gave her followers on Snapchat a tour of the Los Angeles factory where her jeans are made.

This lead one of her Twitter followers to remark, “by the looks of @khloekardashian Snapchat, she’s got a sweat shop working on her jeans.”

Kardashian quickly fired back, denying that her band uses cheap labor to make its jeans, all of which she reports are produced in Los Angeles.

“Watch your mouth. All [the workers] make salaries and all are employed in LA! Know your info before you chime in,” she tweeted.

“It means a lot to me to make my denim in the U.S. and to be employing good wages to all of my hardworking employees,” Kardashian added.

Since it’s debut earlier this year, Good American has proven a hit with the star’s followers. The company announced in October that it had sold out of one of its most popular styles.
