What is Slow Fiber
Born from a group of textile companies in Piedmont with a common need: change the course of consumerism in the textile field, combining aesthetics, ethics, quality of life and a conscious production. This is how the story of Slow Fiber kicks off.
Today it is estimated that over 150 billion pieces of clothing and accessories are produced every year but almost half of it remains unsold. Not considering the pollution and the exploitation of raw materials needed to realize such a huge production.
It is evident therefore that it is essential to carry out concrete and shared actions to invert this harmful trend.
Slow Fiber puts together a group of different companies of the piedmontese textile sector that decided to make concrete choices in order to spread new business models founded on healthier, cleaner, fairer and more durable products.
Slow Fiber pillars

A cleaner production and consumption is the only way to show respect to our environment and to future generations.
Fairness towards people who work in textile fields means going against illegal exploitation in every step of clothing production.
What we wear could affect our health in different ways both directly and indirectly.
A durable cloth is made to last for long time. This means that there will be less waste clothes to be disposed of or that become old-fashioned in little time.
