Cover image for Tomorrows apparel industry report “If indigo was invented today, we would never approve it.”
Andrew Olah, founder of the Kingpins denim show, and of Olah Inc., a textile marketing, development, and sales agency in the US.

Comments like this serve to demonstrate how the spotlight is now very much on the design and manufacturing of textiles and apparel in terms of sustainability.

This report is intended to explore and clarify, as much as possible, the complex and ongoing issues surrounding sustainable textiles for apparel. It will examine and compare natural, synthetic, and regenerated fibres, and many of the processes involved in their manufacture.

The hot topic of toxic chemicals used in dyeing, printing, and finishing will be investigated, along with the progress being made in eliminating them.

Textile recycling, slow fashion, and garment longevity are re-emerging as viable concepts for impacting sustainability.

Finally, we will see how the industry’s efforts to capture, measure, communicate, and improve its environmental footprint in a transparent way are leading to collaboration, innovation, and an improved bottom line.

The report includes quotes from some of the leading players spearheading activity in this area and illustrate how sustainability must go beyond corporate social responsibility studies and philanthropic efforts to focus on the impact of textiles on the environment.

At over 27,500 words, the report truly is a comprehensive look at this evocative of subjects.
