Textile Exchange has released the second set of 13 new documents within the full suite of Material Snapshots, produced in 2015 with financial support from VF Corp and in collaboration with Brown and Wilmanns.

According to a press release, the new Material Snapshots offer a deeper dive into the life cycle issues of 27 fibres and materials, covering both preferred and conventional options.

“Each snapshot combines available LCA data and information with detailed literature reviews to provide a reliable and comprehensive, yet succinct, analysis,” Textile Exchange said in the press release.

Included in each snapshot is an overview of; unit process descriptions; process inputs and outputs; performance and processing attributes; potential social and ethical concerns and availability.

Other overviews include; certification and pricing details, suggested questions to ask when sourcing the material, and system diagrams.

The new snapshots are designed for more technical users such as materials, sourcing, and sustainability professionals are not aimed at users looking for a more summary view of a fibre or material.

Textile Exchange added that for that purpose it offers a set of 33 Material Summaries, produced in 2013/14 with support from VF Corporation.

“The two sets of resources are designed to be used alongside each other to help educate and enable informed, intelligent fibre and material choices,” Textile Exchange informed. (AR)
