Fantastic piece! Yes, I think and read about fashion and fabrics all the time. Here's one more bit of good info: https://oecotextiles.blog/2011/01/19/estimating-the-carbon-footprint-of-a-fabric/. Also, silk! You've inspired me to dig even deeper into this idea. Transportation of consumer goods (and the raw materials from which they're made) can leave a bigger carbon footprint than the manufacturing process of the fibers themselves. More to come on this. Thank you!!! :D
