The creation of a single garment involves a complex web of stakeholders and processes, including farmers, fiber producers, yarn manufacturers, weavers, chemical processors, cut and sew manufacturing, logistics and distributors. Engrained within each stage of the process is a significant environmental footprint driven by the usage of natural resources and synthetic inputs generating waste at every stage.
GCNYC’s Fair Fashion Center invites you to join an intimate conversation with La Rhea Pepper, Founder and Managing Director of Textile Exchange for a conversation on how they are driving industry transformation in preferred fibers – or those that perform better socially and/or environmentally than their conventional counterparts.
Gain an overview of how Textile Exchange is uniting supply networks to build a responsible fibers and material chain of custody. Learn how to get started in establishing a preferred fiber strategy and tools available to guide continuous improvement.
