How to Choose The Best Clothing Fabric For You


What is the best fabric type for your clothing? There are so many choices and qualities to consider to find the perfect fit for your figure, fashion taste, and lifestyle.

One of the most important aspects to remember is to prefer environmentally friendly fabrics. Many clothes we can buy today are made cheaply from disposable materials.

One of the best ways to be more sustainable with clothes is to pick higher quality items that last a long time. Many differences exist between natural, synthetic, and semi-synthetic textiles. How to choose the best for you?

Some materials are more eco-friendly than others. Sine many textiles used in the fashion industry are detrimental to your health and the environment, it's important to make the right purchasing decisions.

I have compiled a few resources to help you get familiar with sustainable fabrics and guide you when purchasing eco-friendly and ethically made clothing.
