Panel: Could alternative materials change the face of sustainable fashion?

14 Jul 2024
The Source Catwalk
Experimentation within sustainable textiles is on the up ' research is being done into new materials that can reduce the fashion industry's environmental impact. However, there is still some uncertainty surrounding the application of these materials in practice.' This panel shines a light on some of the more eco-friendly materials on the market, such as pineapple leather, and how it can be used by brands to contribute towards a more sustainable and ethical industry. The panel will discuss what makes a material sustainable, as well as see examples of where it has been used, and how exactly sustainable materials positively impact the industry.
