In recent years, sustainability has become a major talking point in the fashion industry. One of the most significant ways in which designers and brands are becoming more sustainable is through the use of eco-friendly fabrics. In this blog post, we will explore some of the sustainable fabrics that are making their mark in the industry.
Cotton is one of the most widely used fabrics in the fashion industry, but conventional cotton production is known for its heavy use of pesticides and water. Organic cotton, on the other hand, is grown without the use of harmful chemicals, making it a more sustainable option. Many designers and brands are now using organic cotton in their collections, and it is becoming more widely available.
Polyester is another popular fabric in fashion, but it is also known for its negative impact on the environment. Recycled polyester, which is made from recycled plastic bottles, is a more sustainable alternative. It reduces the amount of plastic waste in landfills and oceans and requires less energy to produce than conventional polyester.
Amni Soul Eco® (what we use!)
the world's first biodegradable polyamide 6.6 yarn, which formula has been improved to allow clothes, made with this yarn, to quickly decompose after being disposed in landfills. Amni Soul Eco® is a major sustainable breakthrough for the whole textile industry, thereby we contribute to the environment of the future generations.
Tencel is a type of fabric made from eucalyptus trees. It is known for its softness and breathability and is often used in activewear and denim. Tencel is also a sustainable option because it is produced using a closed-loop process that recycles water and solvents, making it much less harmful to the environment than other fabrics.
Linen is a natural fiber that has been used in clothing for thousands of years. It is made from the flax plant and is known for its durability and breathability. Linen is also a sustainable option because it requires less water and pesticides to grow than cotton.
The use of sustainable fabrics is a crucial step towards a more sustainable fashion industry. While we have only touched on a few examples in this blog post, there are many other eco-friendly fabrics available that designers and brands are using. By choosing sustainable fabrics, we can reduce the negative impact that fashion has on the environment and move towards a more sustainable future.
