Green (Fashion) Trends
The norm for going green within the industry is to use organic cotton or in its replacement, use organic bamboo. Also, jute and hemp are big fabric choices, as well as soy. One brand, Simple Shoes is using recycled car tires for shoe soles and recycled plastic bottles for peg beds and laces. Other trends are to use natural, un-treated, un-chemicalized fabrics where possible, such as crepe, cork and washed, recycled leathers.
