Fashioning fibres for an environmentally sustainable future
"Fibres—and the way they are grown or manufactured and the raw materials from which they are madeā??represent only the starting point of the textile and apparel supply chain. But it is in these areas where much of the damage to the environment is caused." (Textiles Intelligence)

invited to give a presentation to industry executives who are responsible for
sustainability in the apparel supply chain. During May 2017, we are offering you
