Currently, a healthy lifestyle is a “fashion” among people, which is associated with all kinds of ecological products, such as furniture, cosmetics, food, and clothing. In the textile industry there is the concept of sustainable fashion referring to the whole process from designing to the creation of a finished clothing product. The term also refers to the type of raw material used and the conduct of a responsible product manufacturing sector referring to the working conditions of employees. Currently, the aim is to use organic fibers and products made from them due to the environmentally friendly cultivation, including eliminating the use of fertilizers and chemical substances.
