Subramanian Senthilkannan Muthu and Miguel Angel Gardetti published a book titled “Sustainable Fibers for the Fashion Industry.” These two volumes cover almost every sustainable fibre applicable to the fashion industry, while integrating the importance of these fibres into the sustainability context. The two volumes –first of their kind- address every detail related to these fibres, and connect them to the (sustainable) fashion world. Moreover, they stress the importance of including these fibres in the production of sustainable clothes, since they play a leading role as the starting point in the clothing life cycle.
The first volume was launched in March 2016, and the second one, in May 2016.
