Thinking of using organic materials, fair trade cotton or recycled fabrics in your collection? Looking for information about 'eco or ethical-fabrics'?
Concern for the environment and people in textile production is important if we are to achieve sustainability in the fashion industry, but designers and companies must ensure that the people making their clothes can exercise their internationally-agreed labour rights and work in decent conditions if they want to be truly ethical.
Fashioning an Ethical Industry focuses on working conditions in clothing manufacture rather than the impact of textile production on workers or the environment, but tutors and students often ask us for information about 'eco/ethical-textiles' so we have put together the links below. This is not our area of expertise - if you know of any other relevant links please do let us know. Contact us.
