Fashion For Good, a sustainability museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands launched its exhibition “Grow” with the aim to showcase biomaterials and sustainable innovations. The exhibition, which was launched in early April will continue till October of this year.
Grow showcases a number of biomaterials being used in the fashion industry as sustainable alternatives to materials that pollute and hamper the environment. The exhibit also shines a spotlight on brands as well as industry innovators that are revolutionizing sustainable fashion using various inventions.
Some of the brands showcased in the exhibition include Swiss label Qwstion that uses banana-based material Bananatex to make its bags. Another bag manufacturer Freitag which is also a part of the exhibit, showcases F-ABRIC, a sustainable, transparent and fully compostable clothing line made of hemp, flax and beech wood-based modal fabric. Part of the exhibition is also The Nude Label which showcases a line of gender-neutral underwear made from organic cotton and BioGlitz which produces the world’s first biodegradable glitter. The Grow exhibition also showcases Indian brand Phool that uses floral waste from temples and mosques in India to produce charcoal-free incense.
Fashion For Good’s exhibition also showcases a line-up of industry innovators in the space of sustainable fashion materials. The line-up includes Bolt Threads that has partnered with fashion brands like Kering, Stella McCartney and Adidas for its mushroom-based leather alternative, Mylo. Algaeing is also a part of the showcase which uses algae and cellulose to create completely biodegradable fibres and dyes. Colorifix, which uses biological dyeing processes, is also a part of the showcase.
This, and many more innovations and biomaterials are available to witness at the sustainable fashion museum physically as well as through daily virtual tours that the Amsterdam-based museum has made available to audiences across the world.
