Are confused about the sustainability of the fabrics used by your favourite fashion labels? Do you want to be able to cut through the eco-marketing (and green-washing) and confidently assess the sustainability claims of fashion labels for yourself?
There is no one perfect fabric that is the answer to the sustainability crisis. You need different textiles for different garments. But some fabrics are very low impact, some are very high impact, and some are deceptive due to the marketing hype that surrounds them. Some textiles have ethical considerations for animals and producers, others take valuable land or water from food crops.
If you want a thorough understanding of these issues, this Guide to Sustainable Textiles is your answer. With the help of this guide you will be able to confidentially assess the sustainability of garments you wish to buy, make purchases in line with your ethics, and start conversations with the brands you love to encourage them to up their sustainability game.
This 66 page guide comes as a PDF digital download. It covers the 15 most common textiles, as well as some emerging textiles, textile dying processes and information about textile certifications.
