On the topic of slow fashion, let's talk about eco-friendly, sustainable fabrics - where can you buy it and what constitutes textiles as being environmentally conscious?
There's a mind boggling amount of info available - natural vs. synthetic fibers / textiles as well as the manufacturing process. For instance, cotton - while being a natural material - uses a lot of resources to produce (energy, water, land/natural resources, toxic chemicals)
Some popular choices include hemp, bamboo, ramie, seacell, lenpur, lyocell, tencel, recycled polyester, organic wool + cotton, soy cashmere / silk.
