The materials you choose are pretty important, they affect the comfort and performance of a garment, how you care for it, and also have an environmental impact, some much more so than others. There are a ton of different textiles available, all with different looks, benefits, and sustainable/ethical issues. I created this series on My Green Closet to talk about common fibres and fabrics, what the pros and cons are, and what different options are available if you’re trying to make more responsible purchases.
