Drawing upon industry expertise, the book introduces readers to the fundamentals of fiber production and the product lifecycle. It features a fiber-by-fiber guide to natural fibers, including cotton, hemp, silk, and manufactured fibers including polyester, modal, azlon, then covers processing and promoting recycled fibers that are designed to be circular. Each chapter investigates six main areas of potential impact in fiber cultivation, production, and processing, including chemical use, water, fair labor, energy use, consumer use/washing, and biodegradability and recyclability. Readers will learn about the environmental impacts at each stage of the lifecycle, optimizing sustainability benefits, availability, production applications, and marketing and innovation opportunities that lead to more sustainable fashion."--Publisher's description."@en ;
