FutureFinders spots key emerging trends and the products on Global Sources that drive these trends.
The first FutureFinders episode focused on the latest developments in the ever-evolving world of fashion.
In a recent article, we examined how function and style come together in the little bag that could, the sling bag.
This time we focus on sustainability in fashion, defined by Green Strategy “as clothing, shoes and accessories that are manufactured, marketed and used in the most sustainable manner possible, taking into account both environmental and socio-economic aspects.”
Sustainable fashion takes many forms. From the consumer side, it includes buying products made in an environmentally friendly facility, upcycling, and even swapping or renting clothes in lieu of buying new ones.
From the volume manufacturing point of view, meanwhile, the use of different types of “green” materials is a major aspect in sustainable fashion.
The eye-catching shirt on the video, for example, is made of RPET or recycled PET fabric.
Environmentally friendly materials are also making their way to bags manufacturing.
Fuzhou Junshine adopts a combination of Tyvek and cotton in its water-resistant shopping bag. Paper-like in terms of feel, Tyvek is a spunbonded material made of high-density PET fiber, and is 100 percent recyclable.
Jute, said to be the most earth-friendly natural fiber in the world, is used in this shopping bag from Natrual Packing. The bag keeps the material’s natural color but can also be made in Pantone hues.
