English textile manufacturer Result Clothing is working with its production partners in Bangladesh to distribute blankets and fleece jackets to communities hit by icy temperatures. So far, 3,000 blankets and 5,500 clothing items have been distributed in impoverished areas around one of the factories near the city of Dhaka, where the products are made. In parts of Bangladesh, temperatures fell to nearly zero degrees this year, and approximately one fifth of the population lives below the poverty line. The managing director of Result Clothing, David Sanders-Smith, said they were donating the products because they wanted to give something back to the communities in a country where the British clothing supplier has been active since 2005: “This year, there has been extremely cold weather in parts of Bangladesh so these blankets and fleeces have been a real life-saver for people living in poverty.” Distribution of blankets and fleece products is focused on the region around Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, where many people live in poverty. The donated products are made out of fabric that is not required for other purposes. The materials originate from the Result range, including R039 Polartherm fleece blankets and R033J Polartherm fleece jackets. Result Clothing is based in Colchester in Essex. In Mongla, Bangladesh’s second-biggest port city, the company just recently opened its sixth production site for the manufacture of clothing.
