Recent trends in sustainable and eco-friendly textile and clothing practices in India

Author(s): R Tryphena and Dr. I Arul Aram
Abstract:
The Earth Charter, an ethical framework for building a just and sustainable global society has based one of its principles on ecological integrity. The principle states “Adopt patterns of production, consumption, and reproduction that safeguards Earth's regenerative capacities, human rights, and community well-being”. The sub-principle says “Reduce, reuse, and recycle the materials used in production and consumption systems, and ensure that residual waste can be assimilated by ecological systems”. Sustainable and eco-friendly textile and clothing practices adhere to these principles of reduce, reuse and recycle. New words are coined almost daily as designers seek acknowledgment and market interest for their products – upcycled, altered garments, remade, reclaimed fashion, recycled style, etc.
