What is Sustainable fashion?
Sustainable fashion is a design philosophy for producing clothes, shoes and accessories in environmentally and socio-economically sustainable manners and to encourage more sustainable patterns of consumption and use, which necessitate shifts in individual attitudes and behaviour. Sustainable fashion is also called eco-fashion and can be seen as an alternative trend against fast fashion.
Sustainable fashion products
A product is called sustainable when it is manufactured with environment-friendly raw materials, technologies and chemicals and respect for people - workers, local people, consumers.
Check out our Glossary of Sustainable fashion to learn which are
the different aspects of Sustainability in Fashion.
During the process of creating ready-to-wear garments from raw materials, there are many critical points, in which the business can choose materials and technologies, which have either inferior or superior eco and social qualities.
The eco-friendly raw materials are:
- natural fibers, recycled or produced with water or land saving techniques, or not involving cruelty to animals
- man-made fibers from recycled materials, produced with low environment impact
The manufacturing processes with superior quality includes:
- water and energy saving, waste and CO2 emissions reduction, easily recyclable designs
Companies that choose these techniques manage supply chains, which ensure fair working conditions and wages and support the development of local society
Nowadays there are more and more fashion companies, which choose the path of the sustainability and they work hard to show the customers the hidden value of the environmental and social friendly way that they make fashion.
