A British outdoor sportswear company is to stop buying fabrics produced in Burma.
The Burmese rights group Burma Campaign UK says it had asked Gill Clothing to stop using fabrics produced in Burma and the company has said it will end the practice.
The rights group says Gill Clothing joins some 150 other retailers refusing to use Burmese products in their goods.
Clothing exports are an important source of revenue for Burma's ruling military regime.
International trade and labor organizations have expressed concern over the government's systematic and widespread use of forced labor.
Those groups say most of the victims of forced labor are women, children and the elderly, and torture, rape and killings are common.
