Good book on sustainable fashion and textiles. She paints a broad overview of the industry using a systems thinking approach, discusses challenges and opportunities with different textiles, production methods, and interesting new avenues for the fashion industry to pursue.
Its a good book to read for starters, to get inspired, and to have an birds eye view of industry haps to date.
