It’s all about the Shrooms!

The fashion industry is high on mushroom innovations. If you read regurally the idea of fabric from mushrooms might have a sense of déjá vu about it, and for a good reason. I’ve posted on this subject before.  Like all things that are worth doing, there is more than one crew with their finger in the mushroom fabric pie. MuSkin is different from MycoTEX in that rather than growing shrooms for their fibre making prowess, MuSkin...

Eva Cassis on Items Made to be Loved and Laundered

Slow and steady wins the race! I originally came across Eva Cassis through my fellow Queensland-based-blogging-beauty Jen of Eco Warrior Princess fame. Being a big fan of this unique label, Eva Cassis’s slow-fashion designs kept catching my eye on Jen’s feed. When the opportunity to learn more arose I jumped at the chance to interview the founder of this label. From the moment I started researching Eva’s design...

Stylish Ways To Burn Rubber

When our discarded waste takes revenge. I recently watched one of the craziest movies I have ever seen. It was called Rubber and was a random Netflix find. The story goes that a car tyre comes to life in the middle of a desert dump. It finds it’s momentum, starts to learn how to move on it’s own, and before long it’s rolling around squishing things. Not satisfied with just squishing things it decides to up it’s...

A Plastic Pollution Source That May Never Have Crossed Your Mind

Sun, salt, and sand is a cure all. And as many of us already know, a blissful trip to the beach can often be spoiled by the presence of litter, especially those nasty non-biodegradable plastic types. Plastic in our oceans isn’t just unsightly, it is also damaging to marine ecosystems with many animals mistaking our litter for food.

Cacti With More Than Just Good Looks.

  The Prickly Pear’s history in Australia In the 19th century there was a decision to introduce the spiked, hardy, and now-very-on-trend cactus, the Prickly Pear (mostly the species Opuntia stricta for those who like their fancy latin names)to Australia to use as natural agricultural fencing (with additional industry benefits we will discuss in a bit). Unfortunately this prickly little fella was pretty darn happy living in...

Preserving Artisan Culture in a Fast Fashion World

Arts and Crafts should be taken seriously. In a world of fashion as fast as fries and burgers there is a growing concern about the loss of artisan cultures and techniques. Some of you might be aware of the fact that prior to this global fashion model, many places had distinct and very locally recognisable ways of dressing. While this distinct method of dressing isn’t so easily identified in recently developed countries like...

Self Cleaning Fabric

Lazy folks and planet lovers rejoice. Have you ever picked something out of the laundry basket for a sneaky second (or perhaps third, fourth, or fifth) wear? Are you nodding? Thought so. We all have our everyday fave items that just don’t ever seem to be in the clean clothes pile. By re-wearing items rather than washing them you are actually doing your bit for the planet. According to research by Clearwater Australia  the use...
