Synthetic Fibers vs. Natural Fibers



The list of fibers in fabrics is endless, but no matter how many there may be, they can all simply be placed in either one of two categories: Synthetic or Natural. What makes a fabric one or the other?

Any textile that is man-made is considered to be a synthetic fiber fabric, whereas any textile made from a form of plant or animal is considered a natural fiber fabric.

    Check out what popular fibers belong in which category and the pros and cons of each category


Although these lists are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to comparison, they defiantly show you that both categories have their positives and negatives, what doesn’t right?

The next time you have a spare minute,wonder on down to your closet and sneak a peak at some of those tags. You just may be surprised by all the different types of fibers used to compile that fabulous wardrobe. 

In reality, 60% of all clothing made today is made with synthetics, so it may seem like a task to find something that is completely free of any synthetic fiber. There are a number of clothing companies and brands that are passionate about using only organic, non-toxic and eco-friendly materials. If your ready to go all natural, look into researching eco-friendly clothing brands and you will be shocked by how many there really are.  Eco Friendly Fashion Brands is just one place you can find a list of brands that are all natural. 

                           Make sure to keep checking those labels and be aware of what your wearing.
