The graphic booklet (Eu) ropa is written and drawn by the italian writer and cartoonist Franco Sacchetti in collaboration with Clean Clothes Campaign. Eu) ropa is an artistic project of Insomnia Company, supported by Iberescena and Electa Creative Arts, a cross-media investigation dedicated to clothes and what lies behind their production.
