Sustainability in Fashion and Textiles: Values, Design, Production and Consumption
There is no doubt that the textile industry - the production of clothing, fabrics, thread, fibre and related products - plays a significant part in the global economy. It also frequently operates with disregard to its environmental and social impacts. The textile industry uses large quantities of water and outputs large quantities of waste. Many unskilled jobs have disappeared in regions that rely heavily on these industries, and textile industry companies are increasingly unable to offer job security. Add to that the informal-sector work proliferating both in developing and developed countries. Child labour persists within this sector despite growing pressure to halt it.
In addition, fashion demands continuous consumption with an inbuilt tendency towards disposability. Clearly, current fashion industry practices are in direct competition with sustainability objectives; yet this is frequently overlooked as a pressing concern.
This book takes a wide-screen approach to the topic, covering, among other issues: sustainability and business management in textile and fashion companies; value chain management; use of materials; sustainable production processes; fashion, needs and consumption; disposal; and innovation and design.
The book will be essential reading for researchers and practitioners in the global fashion business.
