The boom of synthetic fibres

Natural materials mean fibres of natural, and not of synthetic origin. Since the 30’s of the 20th Century, synthetic, thus artificial fibres and materials gained prominence on the market, which have caused natural fibres, such as cotton or silk to run off rank.

With synthetically manufactured materials, a solution for the mass consumption of a waste-oriented society seemed to have been found. Because materials created in the laboratory can be produced at any time, completely independently of climatic conditions. Harvest failures and quality differences do not arise in such a way.

For many decades, it seemed that the optimal solution for the insatiable demand of the textile industry seemed to have been found. Until nature regained its way to the catwalk.

Back to Nature

Increasing allergic reactions, and increased number of Neurodermatitis cases, and a change in the consciousness regarding the environment led to the fact that people started to reconsider, what nature offers us. Not only in terms of food, but also in terms of clothing, people had started to revive almost forgotten believed knowledge.

Scientific studies emphasize the special characteristics of natural fibres: the incomparable breathability of untreated cotton, the heat-storing effect of baby Alpaca wool and the natural colour variety of native cotton.

This is how in Peru it started to be allowed to grow naturally coloured cotton again for the first time in the past century. People began to revive organic pesticides and more and more farmers switched to biological cultivation.

Meanwhile the market of organically certified fibres has started to boom more than ever. And accompanying it, the demand for socially acceptable and fair conditions of work for the farmers in the cultivation countries.
