Spinning Future Threads
More than 60% of fibres in fashion are oil-based and place a burden on natural resources due to unchecked, unsustainable production.
The research concentrates on South Asia and Southeast Asia, because these regions are already critical natural fibre producers and textile hubs.
In an effort to turn these challenges into an opportunity, the research team explored the following question:
How can residue streams from food production in South and Southeast Asia be put to use as a sustainable fibre source for textile production?
We love working on projects that have an important purpose, and the Laudes team dedicate themselves to that purpose, from climate change to inequality.
