Sustainability in textile industries is more than just using organic cotton and providing better working conditions for labor. It involves energy usage at every stage and level of textile processes. Even though sustainable options are slightly tricky to achieve in textile factors, many are now trying.

The Challenges Faced By the Textile Industry

If you look around yourself, you will see so many different kinds of fabrics. From workers wearing uniforms made of thicker materials to make them more resilient to random people on the street wearing light and breathable casual wear to last them through the day, you might come across in a single day so many clothing materials.

Even though it seems simple, the process of making all these fabrics is quite complex and passes through several stages of production. These stages require a lot of energy consumption, leading to high costs and tremendous use of non-renewable resources, i.e. fuel. In addition, burning this fuel is bad for the environment and pollutes the air and water around the factories.

There is a lot to be considered when trying to find sustainable solutions for the textile industry. Firstly, the amount of water and energy consumed needs to be kept in mind so that it can be decided how much sustainable raw materials will be required to eliminate the non-renewable energy sources. The cost of all of this needs to be estimated, as these are not small expenses. Textile factories use a lot of dyes and chemicals, and the waste from this needs to be taken into account. So you see, the challenges the textile industry faces to become more eco-friendly are immense.

From Farm to Fashion

The fibers used as raw material in the manufacturing of textiles are produced through many resources. In addition, they have detrimental effects on the environment.

This is why Artmill frequently uses organic cotton and native natural fibers in the production of its fabrics to ensure a sustainable and eco-friendly environment. We do not want to harm our surroundings with our work.

Artmill Is Ready To Face the Challenges Head-On

Climate change is real, and we cannot deny it anymore. Sustainability is a real issue, and at Artmill, we believe it can create long-term value and help us be a more successful business.

We make use of various renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, and hydroelectric power, to produce safe and clean energy. We understand how carbon emissions are a huge problem in the textile industry, and we aim to make sure that we decrease this aspect in our industry as much as possible.

Moreover, we perform ethical cotton practices and have hired the tribes in Kohlu, Baluchistan, to do organic and regenerative cotton farming. This will help us conserve the eco-friendly environment and help the village people thrive and grow.

Artmill is of the view that sustainable energy solutions are the only way we can move forward. This is not just true for the textile industry but all other sectors working and operating in Pakistan. Global warming is upon us, and if we do not do something about it fast, we will be in big trouble.
