Kantha Mani, a tailor at a #garmentsfactory, is originally from Hassan district of Karnataka. She has been working in this sector for the past 9 years. Initially, she worked as a helper and later, learned to do tailoring work. Kantha Mani says that everyone is treated differently in the garments industry. “In the initial period, I didn’t have any real idea about garments. I joined with the help of a neighbour. She took me to a factory one day, but I wasn’t allowed to enter. She asked me to wait at the door but she never came back. I had to find a phone booth and ring my husband as I had no idea how to get back home.
