A SOUTHAMPTON woman who set up her own ethical underwear company has visited a women’s group in Winchester.

Becky John from St Denys set up Who Made Your Pants in 2008, and attended the speaker night of the Winchester & District Ladies Circle earlier this month to talk about the business.

Only employing women, the factory in Southampton creates and ships 200 parcels of underwear around the world every month, and creates a brighter future for women with limited education and work experience.

Ms John said: “Many of these women are used to having things done to, for, and around them. They’re used to being responsible for other people, but we’re asking them to be responsible for themselves and the quality of their work.”

The Ladies Circle includes women aged 18 and 45, who meet throughout the month to raise money for charity.
