SACRAMENTO, Calif. /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: Two Pedals Publishing(TM) announced today the release of its full suite of books and other materials related to its new title, “Guide to Green Fabrics, Eco-Friendly Textiles for Fashion and Interior Design” (ISBN-9780975298398, 178 full color pages, $40) the ultimate eco-fiber reference guide for instructors, textiles professionals, design students, fashion and interior designers, product manufacturers, and home sewing aficionados wanting to learn more about the latest developments in green textiles.
Numerous products are available within the suite for technical, academic, and personal use, including a Teaching Companion, Student Workbook, Presentation Series, and Chapter Reports, all currently available at guidetogreenfabrics.com.
Guide to Green Fabrics(TM) provides exclusive information not found in any other textiles reference guide, including the impact of green fabrics on our environment and how they contribute to global sustainability, recycling efforts, and our overall health.
“Fashion dictates, it is high-profile and it talks to the next generation – our future. We cannot continue to pollute the earth, our seas, destroy wildlife habitats, use up our finite natural resources and imagine there will be no consequences. The fashion industry needs an internal revolution to adopt a philosophy of respect and sustainability. It shouldn’t be a reflection of the ills of today but a reflection of how things should be tomorrow,” says fashion designer Isobel Davies, Owner of Izzy Lane Ltd., and a featured designer in Guide to Green Fabrics.
Guide to Green Fabrics showcases the unique characteristics of sustainable, environmentally-friendly, organic, and recycled fibers, and how to use them in design. Care methods for bamboo, soy, hemp, organic wool, ramie, organic cotton, pima, and other eco-friendly fibers are found within the book, and it also discusses how green fabrics are used in the consumer market for apparel, home decor, medical, automotive, and technical uses. The project’s interactive fan page is located on Facebook.
With its depth and breadth of information, Guide to Green Fabrics is poised to become the definitive resource on green fabric education.
Editor R. M. Monroe holds great expectations for the inevitable impact of this eco-friendly fabric guide, stating that “The textiles and apparel industry, with its massive economic engine, touches every life. From clothes and bedding to car interiors and medical supplies, textiles are indeed woven into our collective fabric of life. Truly knowing what our fabric choices are can help us make greener buying decisions.”
Available in softcover and e-book format, these learning materials provide enriching content and insights not found in other learning guides, all with multi-platform availability.
