A New Guide to Organic Cotton and Ethical Fashion

Moral Fibre is a collection of interviews with seven pioneers of the ethical evolution in fashion, as well as profiles of nine winners of the Organic by Design grant, the new generation who want to create an ethical and environmentally responsible fashion industry.

Moral Fibre will allow fashion students to gain inspiration and knowledge from those already involved in creating ethical fashion. It is a guide to better understanding how organic cotton suppliers work and learn from the experiences of seasoned designers.
