Where can you buy Eco fabric? What exactly is Eco fabric? Do the terms Eco and sustainable mean the same thing?
Chris Walker shares his research about what is Eco and introduces you to Eco standards and certifying bodies that validate your supply chain. Chris introduces 46 resources of Eco fabrics who can ship the fabric to Vietnam for garment production. We discover that fabrics like cotton, bamboo, hemp, wool and silk are not 100% Eco-friendly.
If you are an established or start-up brand that wants to learn more about eco fabrics and want to purchase them, this e-book will cover everything from certifying bodies to reaching eco fabric wholesalers.
