Abstract:
The development of clothing from fibre to fabric stage requires a lot of processes that are harmful to the human and environment because the current operations of textile industry are unsustainable and companies, environmentalist and consumers are searching for strategies to reduce the carbon footprint of textiles. Recently, various technologies and innovations related to textile production have been developed to save the world from the dangerous effects of chemicals and to protect the mother earth. Different preventive measures have to be taken and technologies should be developed which can maintain the balance of the ecosystem and make the final textile product free from toxic effects. In general, there is really no such thing as 100 percent eco-friendly clothing as all garments requires water for the fibres to grow and energy to make the fabric and the finished garment. Eco-friendly clothing can be termed as clothing made of natural fibres, organically dyed with natural dyes or fabrics that use very little water, energy or chemicals that have a positive impact on the environment. Natural fibres are particularly attractive because of their unique properties such as mechanical strength, light weight and wearer safety. Therefore, this review presents an overview of the textile industry highlighting the ways to make textile industry more ecological.
