The Sustainable Angle    

About Us

The Sustainable Angle is a not for profit organisation which initiates and supports projects which contribute to minimizing the environmental impact of industry and society, and that help make it easier for companies to make informed decisions when it comes to sustainability.  

The Future Fabrics Expo focuses on how fashion's environmental impact can be lowered through textile innovation, and novel ideas to transform the fashion system and design practice. The Future Fabrics Virtual Expo is an online tool to make the expo content available any time, from anywhere. 

We also assist with sustainable fabric sourcing and consulting for brands, and have collaborated on international projects including the Nike x London College of Fashion "Mobilize Makers" project.

Future Fabrics Expo

The fourth Future Fabrics Expo took place within Fashion SVP at London Olympia, on 28th-30th September 2014. If you couldn't make it you can still discover a wide range of the sustainable textiles and resources showcased online at www.futurefabricsvirtualexpo.com, where you can find full specifications and contact mills directly. More fabrics and resources will be available in October 2014. 

We additionally presented a seminar on 'building sustainability into your textile buying', exploring how to assess fabrics in relation to sustainability, avoiding pitfalls when sourcing sustainably, and developments of the sustainable textiles market. You can contact us if you are interested in us delivering seminars or workshops at your event or company.
