Sustainable Clothing Made From Discarded Soybean Casings [Pics]
Faeries Dance offer a range of sustainable garments made from soy fiber and organic cotton.
The eco-friendly online apparel store Faeries Dance offers sustainable clothing made from a variety of organic materials. Its soy fiber products are manufactured from discarded soybean casings, effectively making garments out of what would have been trash. Faeries Dance has all sorts of products for sale made from soy, including t-shirts, skirts, gloves, sweaters, bras, pants and shorts. These clothes were:
developed using the fibrous outer casings of soy beans which would otherwise be thrown out during tofu manufacturing. The casings are reclaimed, mixed with organically grown cotton and processed using a closed-loop system that minimizes waste and ensures no chemicals are dumped into the environment. The resulting fabric is eco-friendly with quite a bit of natural stretch.
