Although we’ve never been a fan coconut durability, we like that people are continuing to experiment with it.

Can bamboo in time surpass cotton as the world’s major fiber crop? Is it a viable eco-friendly clothing fiber?

Great article explaining bamboo textiles. Our bamboo jersey for our ‘Epidermal Layers’ is made locally in Melbourne using the viscose process. (via Textile Talk (Marketing moso bamboo): Oh So Moso – Series 1.3)

Water Soluble Clothing from: Fashioning the Future Awards

nikkibarber:

Fashioning the Future Awards is this lovely little gem of an operation that celebrates and rewards designers for using their skills to think outside the box and design sustainable fashion. They are now into their 3rd year, and the winners were just announced for 2011. All of the winners are incredibly unique and talented, creating interesting silhouettes with different types of mostly reusable or reused material. One of my favorite designers created temporary water soluble clothing to raise the question “If fashion is so emotionally transient and disposable, than why shouldn’t it be truly disposable?”

The photo above is my favorite look of the winners. More photos and more information on Fashioning the Future Awards can be found here.

Love this vegan bag by Cartella that was featured in EcoSalon. Mad points for sustainability.

Made in New York City, exclusively for New York City based eco-boutique Kaight, this version of the classic Cartella is crafted from recycled canvas dyed with eco inks and vegan leather.

I think there’s a way to make the objects we’ve found translate into wearable jewelry.
