The Pros and Cons of Eco-Friendly Fabrics

3 mins read

It was that the clothes were made of fabric. With the demand for clothes made of fabric, the designers set the trend. Since the manufacturers are jumping on the bandwagon of eco fashion, we asked a group of experts from fashion schools to tell us the pros and cons of eco-friendly fabrics. Here are some various types of eco fabric that you need to know.

Organic Cotton

Organic Cotton is produced without pesticides or fertilizers. This agricultural practice leads to the creation of jobs for plantation workers. But because there is a garment, the label doesn’t say anything about it. If it has been exported, if it has been dyed, you can see it.

Bamboo

Four Brown Bamboo GrassesBamboo is the star of the cloth, and as far as appearances go, it seems to get everything. Like a cauldron, like a tree, bamboo develops quickly, and after being cut down, it regenerates. Through chemical treatment, chemicals are associated with health problems such as headaches and neurological damage. And the information is worse. Environmentalists expect over-exploitation, which could affect wildlife, along with the deforestation that occurs when bamboo is heated.

Wool and Silk

Assorted ClothesSome clothing manufacturers believe that wool is sustainable because it is a source, not a pretty picture for sheep. They can cope with it and are therefore exposed to pesticides. The wool comes from sheep that have been treated in an ethical and humane way.

Furthermore, silk is a renewable and biodegradable fabric, so this is a tick in the sustainability column. But lace is often produced in China, India or other countries in the Far East, where fair labor practices are not applied in the US, and then transported by sea to get it, which is not very good for fuel consumption. As soon as they finish turning the tip, and then turn off. To find a more humanistic alternative, start looking for vegan silk or “peaceful” silk in which moths can live.

Hemp

Hemp is considered among children because it does not need pesticides or fertilizers and does not need to be watered. Dirt gets richer. That’s true. Hemp is controlled, so there is almost no monitoring of substances that farmers may or may not have used. They want to take them at their word.

Tencel

Another fiber is made of cellulose. Tencel is biodegradable because it is made of wood. It is produced and processed with energy and water. The material is breathable, with a hand that could have the same consistency as suede or silk. Be sure to check the labeling.

As you can see by looking at the individual labels, claims about organic and green can be confusing. But while there is probably no such thing as a “perfect” sustainable material, at least the environmental efforts of the fabric and style design industry are moving in the perfect direction. We need to find out how to differentiate the facts, and we need to educate ourselves further.…
