39: Dressed Up in Algae | English | Printed
Cotton is the most common form of fabric, but it's not sustainable for the Earth. This Fable looks at the problems with cotton such as its massive water use and chemical needs. We offer two renewable and straightforward solutions; polyester made from algae and alginates from seaweed!
This Fable was inspired by Suzanne Lee. Her aim in life is to research new sources to replace hydrocarbons and water-intensive cotton, and to influence, enlighten and inspire the fashion industry and designers to do the same.
