Not your typical trade magazine, every issue has a clean, inviting cover and colorful, contemporary layouts packed with short, informative articles on topics such as supply chain traceability, fair trade, and natural resources conservation. Although based in the UK, the content is global in scope.

Highlights include:

  • Eco-fashion and retailing news
  • New fibers and technology
  • Updates on changing legislation and new initiatives
  • Book reviews
  • Calendar of tradeshows and exhibitions

In keeping with its mission to encourage sustainability and a belief that even small changes make a difference, every issue is printed on 55% recycled paper. Not to miss is the Insight section which features interviews with industry figures such as Michael Kobori, VP of Social and Environmental Sustainability at Levi Strauss; Henrik Lampa, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager for team product at H&M; and Jill Dumain, Director of Environmental Strategy at Patagonia. As the green movement continues to grow in the retail and fashion sectors, abc Ecotextile News xyz informs you on the latest innovations and developments.
