Upstream Transformations with Andrew Olah of Kingpins Show

As consumers, we have the tiniest window into how the products we use are made. Maybe you get a single country of origin or the fiber content, but that hides the many other chemicals, countries, and suppliers that contributed to its production. Andrew Olah has been in the upstream world of denim and clothing production for nearly 50 years and has run the Kingpins Show, one of the biggest markets and informational resources for denim and jeans manufacturers, since 2004.

We talk with Andrew about everything from his early days in the denim business, how to run a trade show during a pandemic, and how clothing manufacturing can actually become sustainable in the future.
