Material Innovation And Sustainability

Fibres of the Future


It is widely known that plants offer an array of health benefits, but they are also now being used to make materials and a range of consumer goods products, as an alternative to petroleum-based products, like foams and fabrics.  The advantage of such technology is that it is able to biodegrade, meaning these garments won’t end up in landfill, where they emit greenhouse gases and leach toxic chemicals into the soil for hundreds of years. These renewable materials, coupled with energy-efficient technologies, provides a glimmer of hope for the future of the fashion industry.
