Uniqlo in Bangladesh
The discreet sponsor's badge on Novak Djokovic's shirt throughout his Wimbledon campaign intrigued me. I discovered a few days after the final that it was that of a Japanese manufacturer of casual wear, and one with an interesting relationship with Bangladesh. Uniqlo did not sign up to the safety pact drawn up by most other clothing companies with factories there after the Dhaka collapse, but is the first of the big international chains to open stores in Dhaka.
