The ability to degrade is the most important.

Biodegradable and avoidable.
Most people think that synthetic materials are non-synthetic materials.
\"Biodegradable,\" she said.

As nutritionists do for food labels, designers play a role in educating customers, even on a sustainable day, when we throw clothes into the bin, it also makes people understand where clothes come from and where they go.

I have been thinking and talking about sustainability for a while.
So I was excited when Tencel contacted me.
Lun Jing group, known for its cellulose fiber.
The manufacturing process is sustainable, it is suitable for ideal colors and contours, and most importantly, it can be produced on a large scale.
The fashion dialogue on sustainable development is limited to several circles.
Our understanding of sustainable development is limited because we are still trying and learning.
This is not only fashion but also popular in other industries.
As designers, we can follow the slow fashion cycle, choose natural fibers and dyes, and work on the morally correct manufacturing process.
But what is needed is the method of commercial mass production.
There must be an industrial solution that can push sustainability beyond the class to the public.
Do you think mainstream consumers are prepared for fashion with conscience?
Although we still have a long way to go, consciousness is getting better.
But I can see a scenario where people push change with broader environmental concerns in mind, forcing the industry to switch to sustainable solutions and ethical manufacturing processes.
What are you doing now?
Now, we are experimenting with all kinds of yarn on the hand loom.
