ReGenerative Agriculture is a way of sourcing natural fibres that (in terms of environmental footprints) can make Climate Positive garments: is it just greenwashing or can it offer potential to rid textiles of its poor reputation?
Patagonia is using this type of cotton, Finisterre is sourcing the wool, Timberland is using this category of leather, while The North Face (TNF) has already launched a product using this wool (and is currently integrating the cotton within their supply chain). The trend has been to merely reduce the footprint for products – could ReGenAg be the tipping point to change sees fashion and textiles make a positive contribution to the world? Charles Ross joins the CCD team to discuss.
