Fibers from the sometimes-invasive water hyacinth are being developed into sustainable fabric. The plant is sometimes invasive, but it just sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
A new discovery for me, the Fiber Organics shop, also has a blog, and I’ll definitely be spending some time browsing the archives. These posts caught my eye: Zero-waste pattern layout (related: No Waste and Less Waste Fashion Designers), and a breakdown of the differences between the terms eco-friendly, organic, sustainable, etc.
Our own Mary Beth has opened a new shop Supafab, featuring handmade + sustainable gear for tots, adults, and home.
