A bit of fabric education
Nylon/Polyester - made of synthetic non-biodegradable petrochemicals
Viscose/Rayon, Acetate / Triacetate - forest are cleared to make plantations of pulpwood, treated with hazardous chemical like sulphuric acid, water intense
Acrylic - carcinogen that targets the central nervous system
PVC - incredibly toxic, made from vinyl which is a carcinogenic, non biodegradable, releases toxic dioxins
Tencel- please source more of this, it’s one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly fibers, no pesticides, little water used in manufacturing, completely biodegradable
Linen (flax) - sustainable, breathable, completely biodegradable
Organic cotton - biodegradable, recyclable, less water than conventional cotton
Shouldn’t blame them, blame the designers and brands, they want to use cheap materials but sell at premium prices to maximise profits.
In the end the iconic is just the stockist and even though they can choose who they stock they need to make money too so they stock brands they know are popular with their buyers.
I get your concern but I think most people just find it too troublesome. As long as it’s clothes we wear it
So far the most eco conscious high end brand has been Matin
This has been a PSA
Yeah especially with sustainability and environmental consciousness being a huge issue now you’d think more clothing manufacturers will be aware of what they make their garments from but I guess money and cheap labour is more important and of course major companies like the iconic will want to get the latest fashion they don’t care about how it’s impacting the environment and waste.
