The textile industry is increasingly committed to the environment. And although there is still much to do, more and more companies are betting on the manufacture of ecological fabrics.
What distinguishes an ecological fabric?
Ecological fabrics differ from those that are not because they are made of 100% organic materials and are treated through sustainable production processes. That is, chemical-free processes and components harmful to the environment.
Normally, these types of fabrics are certified as ecological if they meet certain manufacturing standards. Among the main ones, the efficient management of natural resources stands out and that the environmental impact is minimized during manufacturing.
Do not forget that choosing natural and ecological fibers can offer many benefits. In addition to providing more freshness and softness to our fabrics, we will be helping to protect the environment.
What kind of ecological fabrics can we find in the market?
Ecological fabrics are soft, breathable and very resistant. But best of all, they are free of harmful components to the planet. This is the main reason why today we can find a wide variety of sustainable fabrics on the market.
These are some of the most commonly used natural fibers in the market:
Organic cotton is one of the best known ecological fabrics. In addition, it is one of the most used thanks to its great versatility. Its production is carried out in fields free of pesticides and chemicals harmful to health and the environment.
The linen is also positioned as a strong and very resistant fabric, as well as comfortable and elegant. Its main advantage is that it has antibacterial properties and does not need pesticides for its cultivation.
Hemp stands out for being a natural and durable material. In addition, it is much stronger than cotton and is a hypoallergenic tissue. Currently, we can find many fabrics made of hemp fibers, including fabrics for upholstery.
Bamboo is an increasingly used material in the sustainable fashion sector. This is because its cultivation requires less water and has anti-allergic properties. In addition, it has the peculiarity of being a thermal regulator, that is, it provides heat in winter and coolness in summer.
It is true that polyester is a fabric that derives from petroleum. However, a decision that many companies committed to the environment are carrying out is the use of recycled plastic for their manufacture.
