Textile Exchange releases Material Snapshots

Jan '16
Textile Exchange has released the first half of its new series of Material Snapshots produced in 2015 with financial support from VF Corporation and in collaboration with Brown Wilmanns Environmental LLC.

“The new snapshots offer a deep dive into 29 different fibres and materials, covering both preferred and conventional options,” a Textile Exchange press release revealed.

Designed with the more technical user in mind, the snapshots combine available LCA data and information with detailed literature reviews, to provide comprehensive, but concise analysis.

“Users looking for a more summary view of a fibre or material should refer to the original set of Material Summaries produced in 2014,” Textile Exchange informed.

The original Material Summaries and the new Material Snapshots are designed to be used alongside each other within an organisation to help educate and enable informed, intelligent fiber and material choices.

“We hope the new snapshots will add to the value of our resources and allow for broader usage among our membership,” the agency observed.

Textile Exchange is a global nonprofit organisation that works to make the textile industry more sustainable and works with everyone involved in making textiles, including clothing, sheets and towels.

Incorporated in 2002, Textile Exchange works closely with its members and textile industry stakeholders along the entire $1.7 trillion value cycle and is headquartered in the US. (AR)
