In the UK

I am currently in the UK, learning about the textile recycling industry in the country. I have finally got a tentative outline written out, with a summary of what will be in each chapter. The third chapter is going to be about the source of the goods. I look at how the goods are sourced in the UK, what happens to them while they are in the UK, and the human interactions that surround their handling. Remember, my work is on Igbo trade networks that stretch from West Africa to the UK, but the third chapter will necessarily include many more people than the Igbo. At the end of the day, what draws them together is used clothing, or more precisely the trade in used clothing. Reminds anybody of ANT?
