Issue Week 19-2015

 Summary of news published in Week 18-2014

jpa4Sibil220ENOUGH time has elapsed since some fibre and yarn suppliers to the bodywear industry introduced recycled versions of their nylon and polyester products for eco-friendly fabrics to become available commercially. Yet, one news item in this issue suggests that relatively few knitters of swimwear fabrics are exploiting opportunities to establish their commitment to environmental issues. This could be due to knitters’ desire to optimize the diversity of their product range so as to reduce costs, or to weak demand shown by garment manufacturers. Either way, consumers seeking sustainable swimwear are not being served adequately by major brands. These consumers are obliged to buy online from small specialist labels, often internationally with resulting higher costs. It could be argued that limited consumer demand for eco-friendly swimwear does not justify its inclusion in major branded collections. But, until major brands start producing, and especially promoting, sustainable products, the true size of the potential market remains an unknown quantity.
