Eco Friendly Textiles

13 Feb

For past projects in particular the self-motivated project I carried out over the summer break and the RSA project I have been increasingly interested in the use of natural dyes and eco textiles. Whilst at Premiere Vision in Paris last week I came across numerous companies, which are creating environmentally friendly textiles. Akin Tekstil for example use organic cotton to produce some of their fabrics, they also take great care to treat the wastewater produced during manufacture. Here is a link to the website: http://www.akintekstil.com.tr/index_eng.asp Asahi Kasei is another company, which I came across at Premiere Vision. Asahi Kasei produces ecological fibers from a renewable resource. The fiber Bemberg is biodegradable, and clean burning.

I also came across some beautiful photographs of natural dyes taken for Bloom magazine by Doswell and Mclean whilst looking at http://trendland.net, one of my favourite online sources of inspiration. Here are some of the fantastic photographs:
