What’s In My Fabric? : Cotton

This week is Fashion Revolution Week. The eighth year in which the charity ask us to challenge our favourite fashion brands with the question #whomademyclothes? and #whatsinmyclothes? Fashion Revolution was established in 2013 a year after the Rana Plaza disaster that killed 1138 garment workers in Bangladesh. Since then charity have been campaigning globally against the human and environmental consequences of the fashion industry. Encouraging brands to change their practices to a more transparent and circular model. This year the charity are encouraging us to ask ‘#whatsinmyclothes?’ and ‘#What’s in my fabric?’ and investigating common fibres we find in our clothes. We have investigated three fibres: Cotton, Polyester and Viscose. Plus a blog post on the chemicals found in our clothes. Firstly Cotton:
