Book Description :

There is no doubt that the textile industry – the production of clothing, fabrics, thread, fibre and related products – plays a significant part in the global economy. It also frequently operates with disregard to its environmental and social impacts. The textile industry uses large quantities of water and outputs large quantities of waste. As for social aspects, many unskilled jobs have disappeared in regions that rely heavily on these industries. Another serious and still unresolved problem is the flexibility textile industry companies claim to need. Faced with fierce international competition, they are increasingly unable to offer job security. This is without even considering the informal-sector work proliferating both in developing and developed countries. Child labour persists within this sector despite growing pressure to halt it.Fashion demands continuous consumption. In seeking to own the latest trends consumers quickly come to regard their existing garments as inferior, if not useless. "Old" items become unwanted as quickly as new ones come into demand. This tendency towards disposability results in the increased use of resources and thus the accelerated accumulation of waste. It is obvious to many that current fashion industry practices are in direct competition with sustainability objectives; yet this is frequently overlooked as a pressing concern.It is, however, becoming apparent that there are social and ecological consequences to the current operation of the fashion industry: sustainability in the sector has been gaining attention in recent years from those who believe that it should be held accountable for the pressure it places on the individual, as well as its contribution to increases in consumption and waste disposal.This book takes a wide-screen approach to the topic, covering, among other issues: sustainability and business management in textile and fashion companies; value chain management; use of materials; sustainable production processes; fashion, needs and consumption; disposal; and innovation and design.The book will be essential reading for researchers and practitioners in the global fashion business.

Book Description :

Sustainable Technologies for Fashion and Textiles combines the latest academic research and industrial practices to shed light on a wide range of activities that influence how the textiles industry affects the natural environment. Pressure from regulators, customers and other stakeholders has pressed companies to translate general sustainability concepts and ideas into business practices. This is leading to improvements in how the industry consumes water, electricity and chemicals, and to a reduction in the amount of waste generated by textile processes. This book groups approaches to these topics under four themes, fiber, yarn and fabric production, chemical processing, garment manufacturing and recycling. Addresses sustainability challenges that occur throughout the supply chain, from the sourcing of raw materials, to recycling finished products Provides introductions to sustainability--both in general and within the textiles industry--making this topic accessible for readers of all backgrounds Compares the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches to sustainability, helping readers avoid pitfalls when devising their own strategies

Book Description :

Sustainability Compendium is an informative sourcebook that holds a detailed description of hundred sustainable textile companies filtered from different categories of the textile value chain. It will be a guiding tool for companies who are seeking to turn their business sustainable as well as be an inspiration for others to turn towards ecological business. This compendium will give the featured companies a voice to narrate their sustainable story to the corporate world. Each participant would have a space in this feature to present their sustainable activities setting an example that would lead others to join the sustainable drive. Fashion in itself is a dynamic industry, and if you choose to look at fashion solely from the sustainability point of view, then keeping track of developments is simply not easy. Inventions, innovations and ideas have already changed the narrative, and the axioms of the business of fashion that dominated the discourse at the turn of the century, today sound hopelessly outdated and out-of-place. ‘Sustainable fashion’ was just another segment of the industry till even in the early half of this decade. But not anymore. Thought leaders are unanimous about one thing—sustainable fashion can no more be a niche, and many of them agree that if it ain’t sustainable, then it ain’t fashion. By and by, many brands are lending credence to that idea, while for many others the idea is just beginning to sink in. This is where this compendium comes in—with ideas. There are many articles in this volume that discuss different aspects threadbare. ‘Fashionable=Sustainable. Is that even possible?’ argues that there is more to sustainable fashion than meets the eye. The article asserts that the relationship between fashion and sustainability is active and complex, and each time we look at the key ideas or issues at stake, different aspects seem to come to light. It looks at sustainability in manufacturing, working conditions of garment workers, and the role of the fashion designer in the entire process. Therein, ‘Revitalising a lifestyle’ is an interview with Edric Ong, an award-winning Malaysian designer of natural textiles, fashion and crafts. Currently, Senior Vice-President of the World Crafts Council Asia Pacific, he set up the World Eco-Fibre and Textile (WEFT) Network to further the cause of natural fibres and dyes. In a freewheeling interview, Ong talks about sustainable fashion and where it is going globally, and how it can be made a more permanent mode of retail fashion. He also talks about his well-known experiments with ikat, and points out that eco-lifestyle is about going back to the basics. ‘The True Cost of Fast Fashion’ goes ahead to underline the fact that it is indeed possible to improve and impact almost every aspect of the production process and factors such as scale, technical viability and global supply chains are no longer limiting as long as businesses are committed to paying the true cost of production. And, ‘No, fast is not sustainable’ takes a deep dive into the entire gamut of fashion, right from the birth of the concept to the explosive growth of the segment, and finally the backlash. I hope this fourth edition will give you thoughts to mull over and even implement some in your day to day business.
