(Financial Times) – At 6am, seven-year-old Mohammed Nour Abdullah sets out for work. He walks past a park, along a busy road, turns down a side street and slips through a pink doorway. Inside is a workshop the size of a large classroom. All day long it buzzes with the whirr and thrum of machinery and the tinny sound of pop music played from a mobile phone. The air smells of sweat and freshly dyed fabric. There is a constant blur of blue denim, as jeans are snipped, stitched, folded and packed.
