Welcome to Safe, Sustainable Textiles & Apparels, an all-new initiative by The Textile Magazine. Sustainability has become the most discussed topic in the textile industry today. It points to more than the use of organic cotton and better working conditions. It is about how water, energy and chemicals are used at every stage of the textile value chain. In the wake of the COVID pandemic, the industry has quickly learned to make textiles tough against viral and microbial attacks. Also, the ‘Conscious Consumer’ today is exacting high sustainable and innovative standards in manufacturing processes and products. The Textile Magazine is in alignment with this development trend and is committed to continuing its meaningful communication to the industry and all its stakeholders.
