Publisher's description: Fashion Fibers: Designing for Sustainability is an accessible reference tool for fashion students and designers who want to learn how to make decisions to enhance the sustainability potential in common fibers used in the fashion industry.

Each chapters investigates six main areas of potential impact in fiber cultivation, production, and processing-including chemical use, water, fair labor, energy use, consumer use/washing and biodegradability and recyclability. Readers will learn about the environmental impacts at each stage of the lifecycle, how to optimize the sustainability benefits, availability, product applications, and marketing and innovation opportunities that lead to more sustainable fashion.
