Eco-responsible fabrics: how can you be sure?
In a constantly evolving textile industry and in the expectation of a more responsible and ecological consumption, manufacturers and suppliers have had to innovate their productions for several years now. Several labels created, suppliers playing on transparency, or even relocations of textile production, these changes are constantly evolving to please brands, and therefore consumers. Among these labels, we find the most demanding, such as the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards), which certifies that its textiles have at least 95% of fibres from organic farming, and guarantees an ecological and socially responsible production method.
The OekoTex label guarantees the non-toxicity of textiles and dyes in the processing of fabrics. Suppliers who create textiles with an eco-responsible approach can therefore label some of their fabrics and improve their production over time to offer only eco-responsible textiles. This involves better treatment of fibres, better harvesting of raw materials, and industrialisation that is less polluting for the environment. But also by recycling unused raw materials.
Several brands and suppliers are now choosing to use textiles made from recycled fibres or plastic from the oceans. This makes it possible to reuse materials that have already been produced, to lighten the planet of its waste, and to avoid creating new ones unnecessarily. It is essential today to offer fabrics that are in tune with the times and environmentally friendly, and total transparency on the production of products is crucial, and allows for better visibility for consumers. We find eco-responsible fabrics in all areas, which you can find soon in our latest Sport SS23 trend book.
