  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    Sustainability and fashion are two seemingly contradictory concepts as fashion is all about change and sustainability is all about preservation, but the fashion industry has to develop towards sustainability like all other resource intensive industries in the world. It is now estimated that humans are using resources equivalent to 1.5 planets and still increasing.
    Designers have a key role in this development by increasing the opportunities for sustainable consumption and production.
    Bamboo textile has recently been given great exposure as a sustainable fibre from the industry. And it has been praised as the natural and eco-friendly textile material of the 21st century. However, in most cases bamboo fabric is processed by chemical means.
    In this essay some of the conflicting messages that can be found regarding the sustainability of bamboo made fabrics will be addressed, by giving an outline of the technical background and processes of manufacturing bamboo.
