Eco-Chic - What makes fabric eco-friendly?31.8.11
Jo Alcorn of Whitewash and Co is back with another one of her popular eco-articles. This time we are talking about fabric, and what makes it eco friendly. It's no surprise this topic just opens up a can of worms, so let's get started!
I am back with another controversial green term, to determine what truly makes a fabric eco. After the question was raised from a viewer on my last post, I did some research on this topic to find the true meaning of green fabric. Now the obvious answer is, the less harming process to the environment is the most eco-friendly. However that can mean so much, as we have learned from so many other terms marketers throw around.
The following list includes fabrics and textiles that are common for eco-friendly clothing: Hemp, Jute, Ingeo, Calico, Hessian Cloth, Organic Cotton, Recycled Polyester, Bamboo Fiber, Tencel, Ramie, Organic Wool, Organic Linen, FORTREL, Milk and Soy Silk, Nettle Fiber, Spider Web Fabric. For more information on some of these fibers please click on each name.
