The recent apparel industry has heard more of ecofriendly fashion or the eco-fashion shows. If you are wondering what eco-fashion is, then here goes the brief explanation. Manufacturing clothes, while considering its impact on the environment is termed eco-fashion. While the environment is taken care, you should also note that the health conditions of the workers of this industry are also taken into account. The materials of the eco-fashion apparels are natural. The crops like cotton are grown without using pesticides and materials obtained from silk worms are used. Also, these apparels are made from surplus and recycled fabrics of good quality. Even plastic is recycled to be used in manufacturing these fabrics.

Jigsaw works in the following concept. It finds out the unused fabrics in the warehouses of the textile industries. Jigsaw does it more often and in a frequent basis. This is to make sure that good quality fabrics are got from the warehouses. These fabrics undergo the process of recycling. As a result, the environment is protected from using bio-degradable fabrics. Then the designing process of jigsaw begins. The design is created by the in-house team of jigsaw. Actually, most of the designs are under construction meticulously over years and keep for, the right material to be found. Sometimes, though the fabric is of good quality, jigsaw might not have the right design. Such fabrics are kept in the queue for the appropriate design. The designs of the Jigsaw are brought about in the clothes by the sewing companies. The local sewing companies do the sewing tasks. Then this clothing are sent to the American boutique shops of jigsaw.

In the boutiques, the works that are approved are taken as samples for the designers. Until the customer is satisfied with the apparel, the designers keep modifying. So, out of the remaining clothing fabrics, Jigsaw does more fashionable apparels. When customers use it, they do not compromise on quality and do a favor to the earth. The only way to protect the environment from global warming that occurs due to the unused fabrics is to recycle and put them into use. Eco-fashion is not only beneficial to the environment, but the designers and others related to fashion and designing are chosen from the local area and benefited.
