3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Melissa Fifield on December 17, 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a practical, well-researched and thoughtful guide to making better fashion products -- from the impacts of raw material selection, to the variety of finishing techniques and other inputs, to how we think about product design and its use and eventual disposal. This is a must-read for fashion designers who want to design better product that has less of an impact on the planet, as well as anyone in the apparel sector that has an interest in sustainable apparel and its lifecycle. Kate Fletcher and Lynda Grose have done a masterful job of compiling best practices, words of wisdom and detailed fashion experience in this interesting and useful read.

By Renee Clothier on August 27, 2014
Format: Paperback
What a great book for a Textiles teacher and students alike. It is set out in three sensible sections so that you can clearly see what each topic is and what is contained within. I also liked the way that there is some focus on what actions an individual can take as opposed to just dealing with the actions of designers and large organisations.

There is a good mixture of informative text and applicable diagrams and photos. I recommend this book to those who want to know more about fashion and how it is linked to sustainability.

My daughter used this book to help write her high school paper on sustainable fashion. I read it to and found it very informative and easy to follow. It gave a very balanced view and gave me lots to think about.
