Topics For Consideration With Wise Textile Testing Laboratory Solutions

Pros & Cons of Common Fabrics | Fibres & Fabrics Part 1

Hope you're ready for a lot of information! In this video I go through every day and environmental pros and cons of materials you likely own or will see in stores. Read those labels! ;) Each fibre has different benefits and a different environmental impact. There definitely are more sustainable fabrics than others, but it's also good to choose fabrics that fit the intended purpose of the garment. For example, a summer top should be breathable, athletic wear durable, a rain coat water-resistant etc. and also choose materials that fit your lifestyle. Sorry this video is so long, hopefully it's not boring. To make it easier these are the fabrics I talk about with time codes to skip to the ones you're interested in: 0:35 Cotton 1:38 Linen 2:28 Hemp 3:21 Polyester 4:11 Wool 5:16 Acrylic 5:51 Silk 6:36 Nylon 7:20 Spandex/Elastane/Lycra 7:57 Rayon 8:43 Bamboo 9:37 Lyocell/tercel I'm sure there are things I missed, so please add any pros or cons in the Domments.
