About the Author

Annie Gullingsrud is the Director of the Textile and Apparel Sector at Cradle to Cradle (C2C) Products Innovation Institute, US.


The author presents an optimistic view of fashion and textile sustainability and equips designers and consumers with knowledge to take action. -- Lynda Grose, California College of the Arts, US The book distills the excellent work the author is doing with c2c into a format ideal for student learning. The book encourages students to think forward and to innovate. Sustainability is not an "add on" for our students, it is, in fact essential to good design and this book provides essential knowledge for our future game changers. -- Kelly Cobb, University of Delaware, US I think that this book offers something original and allows for information to be easily accessible. It is good that a range of fibers are discussed and that they are all considered for their environmental impact at all stages of production. -- Beverley Bothwell, University of Bedfordshire, UK This kind of book is needed in classroom and industry alike to help all avoid greenwashing, but also to help offer design manufacturing knowledge in small snapshot bites for the designer/emerging designer to review at a given pressure moment. -- Amy Williams, California College of the Arts, US An accessible text for students on the environmental impact of textile processing, with a focus on sustainability and the lifecycles of natural and man-made fibres. -- Sonja Andrew, University of Manchester, UK
